#Lifestyle: VEGANUARY – IS 2017 THE YEAR? || Have you ever heard the word “Veganuary”? I heard it after I became a vegan. On facebook of course. Where else?! (Laughter)
It was 7 months ago that I made this decision. And it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I feel more relaxed and strong. Physically and mentally! It is not something that can really be explained. You just have to try it to know.

For months now people around me, are asking questions: “Why are you doing this? Is it hard? What do you eat? How can I become one?”
For me it was related to the environment and the animals. I want to contribute to the decrease of pollution and I believe every being deserves to live a happy and caring life.
But there are many reasons to do it. Google is definitely our friend.
But going back to the word Veganuary, it is a movement to help you transition to a vegan life style during January(food, clothes, makeup products,…)
It motivates you to be vegan for a month, and then how knows?! It’s all up to you!
