Update: My vegetarian Lifestyle! ♡

Hey little faeries! ♡

End of January this year I wrote you a post about my vegetarian/pescetarian lifestyle in which I explained what I eat and what I avoid.
If you missed it or wanna re-read it, klink this link My vegetarian Lifestyle

After that, I had my so called "semi-vegan February" where I tried to eat vegan for the simple reason to feel better with my body.
(Semi-vegan for February)

In that "vegan-month" I learned to  love cooking and food even more than I already did before. I became much more creative and really appreciated the feeling the "clean foods"/vegetables and stuff gave me due that time.
(you can also re-read my conclusion about my experiences)

Since then, I tried to have more clean and vegan meals and so my eating habbits changed a little more!

It is very hard to think about all the things, so I may forgot something, but I tried my best!

As for food:
♡ still eat fish from time to time but it got a lot less!;  but I still call myself 'pescetarian' more often than saying 'vegetarian'; when I eat fish, I mostly  eat salmon or prawns if I do

× obviously I don't eat meat

♡ I do eat several meat substitutes (I may do a post about them)

♡ I do eat eggs

~ I do drink even less cow milk than before, but I still eat things, which include milk

~ as for my cheese addiction: I replaced most of my cheese slices for breakfast aswell as the cheese I put on my pizza and pasta with vegan cheese substitutes; I'm only eating real cheese as a snack now

× I try to avoid sweets with animal gelatin in it

~ I don't drink many juices, but I try to avoid drinking those cleared with gelatin. But when I really want to try something, I'd still drink it when gelatin is in it

♡ I do love Tofu! But unfortunately I don't eat it that often.. but I try!

♡ I eat honey, and always will since honey is one of the most healthiest things in this world

As for clothes and cosmetics:
× when I shop for cosmetics, I only buy from companies that claim to be cruelty free (all cosmetic products I still have from former times, I use up, and replace them with cruelty free ones, when I have to buy something)

~ when I buy new cosmetics when I used up my stuff, I try out products, that are vegan

♡ I do have some more apps, to get an overview about products that are cruelty free

♡ my hair dresser is a flagship salon of Paul Mitchell (which is a cruelty free brand)

× I don't buy clothes which include sheep wool or angora 

×  in winter, I also don't buy coats/jackets with any sort of fur trim, since there was the scandal about several animal hair types claimed to be fake fur; also I look for ones without down feathers

~ I may have taken or currently take medicine which may be tested on animals, but my point of view is: I could have died already without medicine, so I try to help stop animal cruelty due my lifetime, which is given to me du those medicines

There are many other things in life, which can be replaced with a vegetarian/cruelty free alternative, such as pillows, furniture, household cleansers, and all those household things in general. But I'm not at this point in life yet, cause I still live with my parents and they won't change a thing for that ~


♡ = I do eat/use/like/support  
~ = use sometimes/trying to avoid, but not fighting for it/I'm in conflict 
× = I don't use/eat/like/support

I feel good the way I chose to live!
