    Good luck this month lovely! I am sure you will smash it! I’m a firm believer in what you choose to eat is 100% up to you, eat milk, don’t eat milk, eat bacon don’t eat bacon, its your choice, and no one should be saying its wrong/unhealthy any of it. All for not being a dick alround, and being supportive where I can 🙂

    I hope Veganuary goes well for you! I definitely can’t stand people who are constantly trying to shove their views on you and won’t stop regardless of what you say. It’s something I’d love to do, i’m just not 100% ready yet

    I have so much time for this post. I eat a vegan diet but call myself a “plant-based eater” (splitting hairs, I know) But only because it’s such a loaded word and people have a lot of strong opinions that they try to force on me when they hear it! (Both pro and con!) xx

    Yesss this is great Vix! Trying out veganuary myself and it is interesting to see the varied reactions from people. There is definitely a privilege to this kinda lifestyle, so its important to maintain that understanding and focus on your own choices and what you can do to make a difference. I may start saying ‘plant-based’ over vegan as there is less of a stigma… very interesting! Immy x

    Bloody loved this Vix! When I did Veganuary last year there were some people who reacted really strangely with a lot of judgement, which is a shame because what they personally choose to eat doesn’t concern me so I’m not sure how what I personally choose to eat concerns them. Unfortunately the word seems to have a lot of negative connotations attached – definitely each to their own, and you’re right, there is privilege involved whether we are consuming animal products or avoiding them and being aware of that is really important xxx

    I wish I could turn vegan but with how limited my diet already is, it is just a change that I couldn’t make at the minute. I am always in awe of people who are vegan, it is such a huge lifestyle change!

    This was a really good post as you covered both corners – the vegans and the non-vegans! You’re absolutely right about “don’t preach”. One of the things i decided when i became veggie, was that i would never be an imposition on my family – expect them to ‘conform’. As otherwise how can i expect them to respect MY choice? It’s definitely helped me for the better. I think it’s so important not to be militant either, as you may not know a person’s circumstance. For example, i am around 90% vegan, but i am also recovering from anorexia, so it’s not healthy for me to scrutinise labels. That may mean that i consume small traces of animal products, but i can only do my best and need to save myself too.
