All of us either have something we want to start doing in our lives or a habit we want to incorporate into our everyday routines. It could be something as small as getting up at five in the morning or signing up for classes to learn a new language. Starting these things are easy enough.
Going vegan is actually a piece of cake, say the vegans we spoke to but, according to experts, a vegan lifestyle can be challenging, especially health wise.
