Positive healthy change takes time

Yes, sometimes positive healthy changes seems to be instant. However, in all reality real true lasting positive healthy transformations takes time. Every great successful moment started as a thought or a small seed waiting to grow. Nothing in life that is good is instant.

As we get into the second week of the new year, I am starting to hear how certain changes has not occurred as expected, despite the great intentions. One common thing I keep hearing is "I went Vegan for a week and nothing changed". Well, I will show some of  the facts why a week may not be enough time for healthy positive changes, such as studies reveal meat can take up to 3 days to a week to digest in a person system.

So yes, a person really needs to take the 30 day vegan challenge to start to see positive and healthy changes. There is rotten meat left in the colon of a former meat eater for days after consumption. So, just for the body to adjust, detox, and a create new healthy habits may take a  minimum of 21 days.

Thankfully the process takes time. The detox would be painful if the process was instant. Also, the process depends on the person's independent choices. The more raw fresh vegetables and fruit eaten, the faster the healing and detox will occur.


As you explore veganism, soon you will realize there are unhealthy vegan choices as well. I too consume treats that not so healthy, such as Oreo cookies and pancakes. I am a firm believer to allow goodies that bring comfort to have a balance diet. The goodies help a person feel satisfied. Also, I have found that when a person is satisfied, that person is more willing to make the compassionate and healthy choice for the greater good. Yes, the healing maybe slower, yet long lasting.

Another food I still have not given-up since I became a vegan is bread. Still to this day I enjoy breads. Breads is one of my major comforts foods. I find bread in most forms is naturally vegan. Also, most breads are easy to bake fresh. So, as you see I suggest to discover foods that make you happy and bring comfort for the best success. In time becoming healthy will become natural. Enjoy the foods of life.

So, as you see by my last two example there are endless choices, healthy and not so healthy in plant-based options. As we become healthy, we learn that  having a well balance diet of what we need as well as what we desire is best. After all, most people not only feed the body, the soul as well.

As you become compassionate in your living, remember Rome was not built in a week. Also, every good adventures gets better as you learn, even if the learning is trial and error. Positive healthy change takes time.

Always remember everything is best in moderation. Be sure to keep balance with the plant-based foods, water consumption, exercise, and sleep for a healthy, abundance, and peaceful life.

Learn all you can and enjoy life. Blessed. Be.
