Happy Holidays to you all!
I get the question quite often about why I went vegan. There really is no black and white answer as to why. I didn't have any health problems that led me to it and there wasn't any specific person that caused me to go Vegan. I literally was sitting on my bed during maternity leave after my second son and had an epiphany (Yes, people still get those). Anyway, I heard the term Vegan brought up on one of the YouTube videos that I was watching, I cannot for the life of me remember who I was watching. But after hearing that I went to Google and began to search the world of Veganism. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I began to watch videos on the meat and dairy industry specifically a lecture called "101 Reason to Go Vegan" after sitting through that video, I thirsted for more information. So I was directed to Netflix to watch 3 documentaries titled: Forks over Knives, Cowspiracy and Earthlings. As I watched the torture that animals unnecessarily go through so that people can eat their bodies and insides, I began to cry and what put the icing on the cake was watching animals not only being tortured alive for food but for fashion and products. Why? Why? Why? It was at that moment I knew what I had to do. I had been an on and off vegetarian for about a year prior but I was able to go Vegan over night, which is rare but a year later here I am. I am proud to say that I don't eat dead animals or any other of their by-products. I am not ashamed of that fact at all. So for me, going Vegan was for ethical reasons, not for weight loss or whatever ever other reasons are out there, but because I cannot see torturing and/or killing an animal just because you like to eat it. I mean lets be honest with ourselves, that why you eat it because you like it, not because it has ANY nutritional value. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!
