6 months vegan

Today is my 6 month anniversary of being vegan and I feel happier, healthier and just better in general.  I now have more energy so I exercise regularly and I weight about 2 1/2 stone less than I did 6 months ago.

Still some weight to lose but less chins is good news

How long have you been vegan and what did the change do for you?


Do Life 5K and Tibits

My brother got me into running by sharing a video with me, this one (can’t embed it, damn you EMI).


The man behind it, Ben Davis, and his family were doing a tour in the UK and we met them for a 5K run in Hyde Park.  I was glad they are all really nice and easy to talk to.  After the run the omnivores and I headed off to a local Weatherspoons for lunch, I saved myself though for a local veg*n restaurant called Tibits.

Tibits is a vegetarian and vegan buffet and one I will be visiting again.  You pay based on weight, there are scales at the checkout, and it can work out a bit on the pricey side but I didn’t mind as the restaurant is in a nice area, classy looking and the food tastes great.  Also there is easy labelling to show what is vegan, everything is at least vegetarian.

Potato salad, coleslaw, falafel, carrot strips, a roll and some other thing I cannot remember
My brother Ryan even liked it.
