The other day I watched this super adorable video of “dairy” cows literally leaping for joy as they set foot on grass for the first time in their lives. And as usual I was reminded “Oh yeah, that’s why I’m vegan”.
People ask me all the time if being vegan is hard, and honestly it’s not.
I haven’t eaten meat since 1996 (no, I wasn’t raised that way, I was just a strong-willed kid) and haven’t had eggs or milk products since 2009. I also stopped using animals for clothing or products tested on animals nearly six years ago.
I really do feel like being vegan is the best choice I’ve ever made. And it’s never, ever been hard, because it’s not about me.
For me, it’s 100% an ethical choice (which happens to have some great health and environmental side effects) based on the principle of causing no harm to another being.
I can honestly say it’s my life’s greatest privilege to be Vegan.
The animals can’t speak for themselves…they don’t get to vote with their dollars, but I can. And I get to at every meal or trip to the grocery store.
If you think being vegan is total Debbie-downer’s ville…let me show you what it’s really like!

What if being vegan was easier than you ever imagined? Would you give it a try?
