Vegan After Reading Slaughterhouse

I went vegan after reading Slaughterhouse

I have to say that I'm a lot like others on this site and became vegan overnight, literally. I had tossed around the idea for a while to try to avoid so many animal products in my diet. I loved dairy, and cheese was my nemesis. But, after I read Slaughterhouse by Gail Eisnitz, I was mortified. I decided enough was enough, and started eating vegan.

A month later, I've dropped 2 pants sizes, have so much more energy, and can get a decent night's sleep every night. The change has been incredible and my husband has noticed too, which is really fantastic! Finding things I can eat has been more than challenging, but knowing that I am helping one more animal with every meal makes every day worth it.

AND I think this site has just allowed me to delete all the others out of my favorites! Very informative, thank you so much! Good luck to everyone on their decision to be vegan!

I'll Do It For The Animals
by: Sarah

I agree completely with the previous comment! I read excerpts from Slaughterhouse ( and now the entire book) and was MORTIFIED at the treatment of the animals. I too decided enough was enough, and made a decision to go Vegan overnight. I am fresh to it, just a few days in, but so far I choose options without meat and buy vegetarian choices when shopping. If I can make the difference for just one animal to start with, and I plan on sticking to this, then I'm all for it!

good for you!
