Welcome to my blog

Hey! My name is Lucy. I am 27 and reside in London, UK. I have a (nearly) 9yr old son. He is my world for obvious reasons :) This is us:

I work 4days a week whilst studying Accountancy. This is a real struggle sometimes but needs must. I have had a blog or two before but never really took them anywhere so I'm not actually sure where to even start. I will try to post at least a couple times a week, updates, recipes, further info etc.

After much deliberation I have decided to attempt to follow a vegan diet. I will be the first to admit this is mainly for health reasons, things such as Cancer scare the hell out of me, my nan is currently in remission from Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. I see first hand the struggle she went through. I am hoping that by adopting this kind of lifestyle I can start to reverse the affects from the all the junk I have shoved into my body. Admittedly I am not a big eater of red meats, I tend to stick to mainly chicken and fish. Well I did. My partner already only eats a fish based diet, and is always going on about how the government is trying to poison us with our meats etc. Up until recently I just brushed his comments off. Not that I have dared to inform him of this yet haha will only give him cause to gloat!
I had noticed a documentary on Netflix called “Vegucated” I recommend this be one of the many video’s you look into watching if you’re considering going down the vegan lifestyle. It had me in tears!!! It makes for some very disturbing viewing in parts, BUT some eye opening information. I know this is only the begining but I am looking forward to a healthier new me!!!

Bye for now :)
