Becoming Vegan

Becoming Vegan

erykah-badu-vegan-456-022411_456x304A significant number of vegans say the most successful way to become a long-term vegan is to do so gradually. Most vegans were vegetarians first, and gradually made the transition into veganism.

Some people shift into veganism by looking for replacement foods that taste and look a bit like animal products, while others jump straight in. Vegans often comment that the majority of food consumed by omnivores is vegan anyway. If you look at a typical meal, most of it is normally plant based.

    • Mark Twain
      “I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t…The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.”
    • Pythagoras
      “For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”
