Welcome to VeggieEvolution! This blog is about our journey as vegans. Here, we explore our love for all animals, share recipes and discuss cultural responses to veganism...while we have a little fun!
My personal journey took way too long! I have been a vegetarian for seven years and the last two have been vegan. Why it took me over thirty years to "get it" I am not sure, but being vegan is something that brings me a lot of joy and makes me feel very happy! I love that every day, our meal choices make a difference for animals! There are so many new ideas for meals that the variety of choices greatly increased since going vegan. Of course, I struggle with wanting to immediately end all animal violence and abuse, and I continue to fight for that. My hope is that this blog might help you in your journey and that together we can have a positive impact on the lives of animals!
Top Reasons for going Veg, you ask?
1. Compassion for the animals. All factory farming (meat and dairy) abuses animals. Google it!
2. It is healthy if done right and not hard once you change your habits. Diseases are reversed on a healthy vegan diet.
3. The future of our polluted environment will require us to stop eating meat/dairy and end factory farming.
4. World Hunger should not exist today! Animals are raised only to kill them. All of the grain that goes to them could feed the hungry around the world.
Every little thing we all do adds up to big things. Let's join together and show our kindness to our gentle friends, the animals. If we don't help them, who will?
