#2 Lazy vegan
I mean no disrespect here because goodness knows there are days that I too fall into this category of being a lazy vegan.
It’s not always about not having time, sometimes I’m just not in a cooking mood. Oftentimes, I would just rather be outside taking a walk, reading a good book, or binge-watching a great show.
That’s completely okay, especially when there are meals I can pull together in only a few minutes to get me back to the things I’d rather be doing.
