My 12th Vegan Birthday
Some people think I’m a bit of a princess but actually I’m more like the Queen, not just because like the Queen I rarely carry money or deal with any practicalities of life but because I have 2 birthdays; one normal ‘when I was born’ birthday and one ‘when I went vegan’ birthday.
Today is my 12th vegan birthday!
Yes, 12 years ago on the 17th April I decided to go vegan.
Yey! I’m 12 today 🙂
This last year of veganess has actually been my favourite too, it’s definitely been the best year to be vegan.
I’ve had some of the best vegan food of my entire life
Since quitting work, hitting the road and starting a full-time vegan travel adventure that basically involves finding, eating and writing about the best vegan food in the world; I’ve enjoyed some of the yummiest food I’ve ever eaten.
And the best bit?
The adventure continues and there’s loads more vegan food to find!
My absolute love, best friend and chief organiser in life decided to go vegan this year too!
After 16 years of being together that was an amazing thing to happen! He was veggie beforehand and then took the plunge this year which was awesome 🙂
Now I can share his food too… if I can get it off him that is!
I’ve met loads of new vegan friends online and in person.
In my previous years of being vegan I never really met many other vegans and never really felt part of the vegan community but this last year has been full of meeting new people, following other people’s journey to more compassionate living and of course talking a lot about vegan food.
It’s been a lot of fun!
We met real life vegans at VeganBurg in Singapore; they were awesome, we ate vegan burgers and cake whilst putting the world to rights. Happy vegan memories!
I’ve been indulged with some pretty serious vegan luxury
Soaking up the vegan luxury in the Maldives where the lovely people at Ayada Maldives fed me amazing vegan food… you can see why that makes me happy right?
Anyway, I’m off to celebrate now, it is my birthday after all 🙂
Share in my birthday celebrations too and leave us a comment below, I’d love to hear from you and will send you a special birthday reply in return 🙂
