That’s not the end of the story. Hang on, it still gets bumpy. 😕
So I did great on a plant-based diet for a couple of years. Then I started to swerve. I experienced rough patches where I had a really hard time doing what I knew was best. Probably sounds familiar, right?! Toward the end of my pregnancy I went back to eating a lot of junk food, some of which was vegan, and some that wasn’t.
That’s the part that really bothered me.
See, I have always been an animal lover. Since the age of 5, I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian. I got my first real job at age 12, working at a vet hospital. I worked hard in school and got accepted into Cornell University. I did well in college, worked a part-time job to help pay the bills, and I was also on the varsity Women’s Equestrian Team. But it wasn’t enough to get me in to vet school.
