Today’s blog post is a little about how I became a part-time (or weekday) vegan. Many people have asked me how I eat, what I eat and why I eat this and that and this not and so on. In this post I’m explaining why I came to this solution that for me fits best at the moment. However this is not static, I’m also changing my eating habits, I read a lot about nutrition, I adapt my eating behaviour, I experiment with food, I just like to try different things out.
For the time being – I’m a part-time vegan and follow an alkaline nutrition. That means I have a vegan lifestyle during the week from Monday to Friday, and on the weekends I would also eat non-vegan and non-alkaline food, if I feel like it. And no – It’s not like I’m dying for Friday to arrive so I can eat whatever I want. Usually, I don’t drastically change my eating habits on the weekends. I might go out for a sushi dinner or drink a cappuccino with regular cow milk. But it’s not like I would start binging on meat and dairy products on the weekend.
I like to think of it in a way that I decide every day newly to eat what I feel like. I don’t have to avoid meat. I don’t have to avoid eggs or dairy products. But for the time being, I most of the time want to. I take this decision everyday. So, if people ask me if I am a vegan I have to answer: sometimes yes and sometimes no. I’m a part-time vegan. Why not?
