I went vegan because I have always cared for the enviroment. I wanted to become a biologist so I could study animals and our affect on the world around us. After going vegan as a dare my senior year of high school I had more energy than ever and I loved it! I always loved vegetables but it made me thnk more about what I put into my body.

Sometimes I slip up and eat something that is non-vegan, but I know that being a vegan is about the journey and saving the world one meal at a time.

I went vegan to support the environment

by Libby

Sadly, I do not live a small family on a farm anymore. Since I can no longer verify with my own eyes the ethics of the production and processing of the animals it is more and more difficult to continue to consume them. It is not just the animals, I'm also talking about plants. There are serious consequences of not only factory farmed animals, but mass production and subsidization of food crops like corn and soy.

Fortunately though, I have a nice sized lot with good sun and lovely raised beds. With good planning I can produce enough veggies and berries for the two of us for most of the spring/summer/fall. I also frequent farmers markets, trying to support the local small guys. To help my health and the environment I try to buy organic when it is available. I strive for minimally processed, natural state, raw food as much as possible.

I guess there are so many reasons why I went on vegan. I could go on forever.
