Because animals are for kissin, not for killin.
For the animals and my health! 🙂
I went vegetarian when I was 14yo because I could not understand the idea of eating another living, thinking and feeling being. Now I’m 24 and a vegan for a year and a half and I couldn’t possibly be happier about my decision.
Had waffled on the going veg for years, but finally made the commitment ten years ago this Summer – that year we regularly drove past a poultry farm, and by about the third time past, could no longer abide the stench and the sad heads we could see sticking up, crammed so closely together. Just said, “This is no longer an industry that I am willing to support.” And that was that!
My son and I were vegetarian, thought we’d try vegan for a month, but never went back…
I went vegan because I realized where my food came from, living animals that wanted to be alive just as much as I did.
I was vegetarian for a long time, and when I heard about the pus count in milk, that made me vegan instantly.
Because causing pain to other beings makes me sad
I went vegan 10 years ago when I realized that my appetite and convenience wasn’t more important than the suffering of an innocent creature. Never looked back.
I was raised vegetarian, but went vegan a little over two years ago after watching Forks Over Knives.
I’m vegan because I don’t want animals to suffer or die.
The animals were my primary reason, but I was also surprised by how different and by how much lighter my body felt (I’m not talking about losing weight. Meat felt like a weight in my stomach).
I was always experiencing indigestion and feeling blah -went vegetarian and then vegan. No more indigestion or blah feeling!!
For the animals!
I developed Type 1 diabetes and wanted to be healthier plus I love animals.
Because Vegan IS the way! 🙂
I love your candy bars- like I LOVE them. I went vegan because I love animals.
I went vegan 8 years ago because I realized that animals are here for their own reasons–and humans eating them is not a reason!
I went vegan after reading a book on animal welfare and was thrilled when I discovered that it helped me lose the baby weight from my first pregnancy.
I am free from because I want and need all of the health benefits to life my adventurous life! I am currently on long term sickness, and thought why shouldn’t i do everything I can to be healthy, to help myself, my health and the drs. So, I went free from, all natural in health and beauty woo! 🙂 xx thank you for the lovely recipe, I will try a version of it myself, and if you don’t mind, I’ll post a link to your blog in mine. X
I went veggie when I was 12 and vegan when I was 17, I decided I could no longer be part of the abuse animals suffer daily and one way to change that was to change my lifestyle and how I viewed the world. I didn’t like the taste of meat and animals were my friends so why am I eating them?! I have been vegan now for 15 years and I feel amazing for it! It changed my whole outlook on life! I volunteer for the RSPB, I donate to the RSPCA & WWF, I donate to animal causes and retweet all the time pleas to help animals that are in danger. Animals saved my soul and gave me a reason to live, without them I wouldn’t be who I am today so I thank them from the bottom of my heart and that’s why I’m vegan. For them. They are my friends, my life and most of all my world. I adore them and will always be a voice they so desperately need in this cruel world.
I went vegan after realizing that all animals have thoughts, feelings, emotions and right to live out their lives without being used for our food. I felt hypocritical having dogs and cats as companion animals while eating other animals. It was the best decision I ever made.
Because I love all animals! Also because I care about my health and the environment. Compassion for ALL beings!!!
I went vegetarian for health. I went vegan for the animals, especially my kiddos Mozzer & Connie. And I stay vegan to spread the message of compassion across all species
After reading Diet for a New America, I was aware of how horrible the factory farming industry was and could no longer support it. Animals are friends not food!!
I went vegan for 100% ethical reasons.
I went vegan shortly after seeing Forks Over Knives a few years ago
Was vegetarian for a couple of months then went vegan (over a year ago now) .. never looked back or regretted it, and think it was a great change to my life. Had been thinking a lot more about my life and the impacts it was having on the world, in particular how my lifestyle was negatively impacting animals so much by eating meat.
I do not tolerate cruel treatment of other living beings, and can’t bring myself to consume its results. I see more than just a source of food when I look into the faces of animals.
The environment, the cruelty, and the food.
