Aside from the food part of my 30-day vegan challenge, I would like to talk about an aspect of the vegan and clean lifestyle that many people might not think about when first making the switch — what’s inside our everyday beauty products.
It sucks that most of the skin care, shampoo, makeup, etc. that we buy at the grocery store is made with chemicals that are harmful to our body. Plus, some are tested on animals. Because of this, I have recently made the switch to natural shampoo made with no sodium chloride, sulfates, dyes, harsh salts, parabens, or gluten!

Wow, what a week! To say this week has been hard would be an understatement; this has been the week from hell. As they say: “When it rains, it pours.” Today marks day 22 that I have been eating this vegan diet.
It has been 13 days since starting this vegan challenge. In addition to cutting out meat and dairy, I have also cut out all refined sugars and soda, and I rarely eat gluten! Here’s a recap of what I’ve eaten and how I did this challenge last week.
Hello, I’m Brielle! Alexandra introduced me last week. I’m a meat-and-dairy eater and have decided to take on a 30-day challenge of eating more plant-based foods. I would like to start my first blog post by saying how excited I am to be apart of Lazy Girl Vegan during this challenge and to share it with you!
