I can tell that 2013 is going to be a pretty exciting year full of big changes! One thing that I’ve wanted to do for a long time is eat mainly organic food and another is to officially cut out dairy. This is why I am doing a 30 Day Organic Vegan Challenge.
To ensure the success of the challenge, I am making some easy to follow guidelines. If you’d like to join me, please do! We can discuss progress via twitter and share recipes Anybody looking to join in is very welcome!
I plan on starting on Thursday the 3rd of January and the official challenge end date will be the 1st of February. I’m hoping that I enjoy it so much that I can continue the lifestyle.
Here are the guidelines:
- No Dairy – milk, cheese, eggs, yogurt, ice cream etc
- No meat or fish
- 80-90% organic fruit and vegetables
- Organic moisturiser and hair products
- Mineral makeup when possible (young blood foundation)
- Organic, natural deodorant
- 1 x Cheat meal per week that must be organic and dairy free
- Try to have three ultimate health smoothies per week (RECIPE COMING)
- Coffee is ok but must also be organic
- Home made cleaning products instead of chemical ones
- No soft drinks
- Print out your 30 day challenge planner and mark off each day as you go [30 Day Planner Here]
What I’m hoping to achieve:
Eating an organic diet has always seemed very unattainable due to the price. I plan to sacrifice spending money on clothing and completely cut out unnecessary purchases in order to afford to do this! Check out my ‘Cheap Ways to Eat Organic Food‘ post.
I am hoping that I will discover ways to incorporate more organic food into my diet in every day life after the 30 days. Perhaps I will be more motivated to take care of my vegetable garden.
Also, any weight loss will be a bonus as I am going on a trip to Cairns in February and would like to be in great shape for that as I’ll be in swimwear every day.
What YOU could achieve:
You could lose weight and have more energy! If you live in the USA or UK you will probably find that eating organic food isn’t ridiculously expensive and could almost be an easy switch?
Less pesticides and chemicals ingested could give you better overall health and give you a sense of accomplishment!
How to start?
Visit your local Wholefoods, Flannerys or equivalent and stock up on everything you need. A trip to your local organic markets on the weekend will help you save money on produce while supporting your local farmers.
