I'm back on Live Journal|
Name's Vanessa Nicole
Seventeen years old
Vegetarian 4 Years
Vegan One month
So why did everyone decide to convert?
Sorry if I'm cliche, but.
I did it for the animals.
They deserve it (:
That's the reason I did it. The more I knew about what happens behind the scenes, and the more thought I put into what I really believe about the respect other animals deserve, I just couldn't do it anymore.
I just started realizing, slowly and with the examples of my veggie friends and lover to guide me, that the only reason to eat meat is "it tastes good" , and that just isn't sufficient to justify the abuse, dishonor, and destruction of planet required to support meat-eating.
Vegan is a natural extension and makes me feel healthier in a way vegetarian never did - the elimination of dairy products feels great! I don't even miss cheese anymore, though it took years. =)
& I'm not going to lie.
I'm pretty sure Soy milk
Tofurky, Soy cheese and all that good stuff.
Tastes a whole lot better than the animal product type did.
It feels better too. & Thats what counts (:
