What’s pop’n, ninjas? It’s been almost one month since I’ve transitioned to eating Vegan. I remember initially feeling apprehensive about making this announcement to my readers and friends for fear that I would not be able to follow through with the commitment.
There have been several times in my life that I had attempted to make the change, but failed after a few weeks. At the time, my resolve was not strong enough and I didn’t have the support system that I have today. However, after I made the announcement of my decision to go vegan on social media, a wonderful thing happened. I had an outpouring of ninjas in my network who immediately reached out to congratulate me and offer their help! ❤
I am super grateful to all these folks for their support during this important transition in my life. With their knowledge and guidance they have made this first month so easy for me! If you are looking to embrace eating a plant-based, cruelty-free lifestyle then check out these awesome coaches:
Markos J.K., the Warrior-In-Chief of For Your Liberation :
Markos was one of the first people to personally reach out to me and congratulate me on my decision to become a Vegan. I have been following his blog “For Your Liberation” for some time now and knew that he had a lot of experience thriving on this lifestyle and was excited to have his support. His process was very thorough and involved sending me a list of acceptable grocery items that I had to choose whether I liked or disliked so he could put together some customized meal plans for me. Markos is a knowledgeable and encouraging coach and I am grateful for all the wonderful information he has bestowed upon me.

Amy Millar Health & Wellness:
Amy and I have been friends for several years and she’s always been an awesome inspiration for me. She’s a champion NPC National Bikini Competitor, fitness model, personal trainer and a Health Transformation Specialist residing in Los Angeles, CA.
“I believe that when it comes to making a healthy life change, one of the most crucial tools is a POSITIVE attitude! To let go of negativity and begin to embrace a positive, healthy mindset!”
Amy definitely practices what she preaches, with her contagiously uplifting attitude, and compassion for all living beings, she is a joy to be around. She offers online coaching and one-on-one sessions as well.
And finally, I have to give it up for my man, Al Kavadlo, my number one supporter! Though he’s still eating meat and other animal products, he’s been helping me whip up some awesome meals at home that we can both enjoy, and he’s been open to checking out new Vegan-friendly restaurants around town, too. I ❤ you, papi!
I have noticed some pretty awesome side effects since adopting a vegan diet:
-My energy levels are through the roof and steady throughout the day.
-I don’t get that “food coma” feeling after eating big meals.
-My sweat doesn’t have much of an odor anymore, even after working out! I definitely don’t reek like I used to.
-I feel like I am not as sore after workouts and have a quicker recovery time between training sessions.
Be on the lookout for upcoming interviews in the next few weeks with some inspirational vegan athletes, coaches, and more!
Til next time, peace, ❤ & Ninja kicks!
