If I’ve learned anything about my years of dieting and trying to live better, it is that new habits shouldn’t be hard. And not only that, they should be fun. 
The reason children have such enthusiasm to try new things and learn quickly is often because they are having fun. If we want to succeed, we need to think like a kid. We have to make a game of it at times. 

What is it? Why?

This proposal to eat Vegan Breakfasts for 7 days is less of a challenge and more of a game. It is meant to get you thinking differently about the way you eat. Let it question if you like eating vegan, and either continue or stop. And of course there are many in-betweens. If you need to adjust, adjust. 

Eating vegan in small chunks is much more accessible for the average person. That’s the idea of this challenge. You have to go for the small wins in life when you are trying to change some habit about yourself. Then, go for bigger and bigger wins.

Go ahead and eat non-vegan the rest of the day. But, you will feel great starting your day in a more conscious way. Who knows what it will lead to. Does it matter? Have fun with it and see how you feel after a week. 

If you need any inspiration, visit this beautiful Canadian woman who talks so eloquently and in a caring, supportive way. She in no way makes you feel guilty about maintaining a flexible diet (like myself). If you have been in the vegan world at all, you’ve probably already have seen her very popular Youtube channel.

Back to the challenge… 

Now you might already be eating vegan breakfasts and don’t even know it. A lot of people eat cereal with plant-based milks. That’s vegan! But, if you are eating egg and bacon sandwiches, than this might be a big change. 

I want to speak to the first group. If you are eating cereals, that’s great. But, this challenge will help you incorporate more fruits and maybe even vegetables into your breakfasts or other meals throughout the day. 
The best thing about the vegan diet, is that at the end of the day, if we “win” or “fail” (no one actually wins or fails, but it the best way to conceptualize it), it teaches us that we CAN eat more fruits and vegetables. We CAN make it our choice to learn to how to shop, prepare, and cook more plant-based meals. So that’s a win for everyone.
