Hello. Nice of you to stop by for the final episode.
For part three I'll be talking about how to transition into a more nutritious diet, and give some tips on how to maintain this lifestyle change. So let's get started.
In the last episode I told you what a animal-free diet means to me. And maybe you agree and want to get started, but you have no idea how. Or perhaps you just want to introduce more cruelty-free products into your life. It can all be a little overwhelming, I know. But don't stress. It's all about you - and what makes you feel best.
First of all: Take baby steps!
Don't be too strict with yourself!
Don't be shy. Nobody cares if you have special eating habits!
Smile. Be nice. Stay humble.
For whatever reason and on whatever terms you choose a vegan-inspired diet, I hope you'll find a balance which helps you to live a happy and healthy life. May it be a meat-free day per week, cruelty-free makeup and skincare, becoming fully vegan (for a year or maybe forever) or just increasing your consumption of fresh produce and water. I believe it's about you. That you know what's best for your body.
Today's recipe is so simple that you don't really need a recipe. But it's my favorite dessert so I wanted to share it with you. Nana ice cream, a healthy alternative to normal ice cream. Read all about it here.
I had so much fun creating these three episodes about living an animal-free diet. And sharing my thoughts, tips and favorite recipes with you. I hope you have enjoyed the series and that you will take something from it that you can incorporate into your life.
If you have any questions or want to read more about my animal-free diet, make sure to check my blog IlkaEliseB or get in contact with me via social media or email.
I also want to say a big thank you to the Les Sublimes team, especially Alexis who invited me to write this series. Thank you so much xxxxx
Darling readers - kindly note that Les Sublimes is not a "vegan" brand, however we do think that following a cruelty-free diet is AWESOME! We greatly admire all of you vegetarians and vegans out there and hope to encourage more people to incorporate sustainable eating habits into their everyday lives. A huge THANK YOU to Ilka for demystifying the word vegan and for showing us just how simple the transition to a plant-based diet can really be!
