Diet Is Not a Personal Choice: an invitation

Recommended Posts


Over the past month I have become 100% vegan, though I have been diminishing dairy now for one year, in my diet. I can make vegan yoghurt, buy vegan cheese and chocolate, and my partner and I have made an ongoing decision to eat more fruit and Veges in every meal. I crave the tastes of a selection of Veges in a salad. Over the past month spring is arriving and making the garden look like a more hopeful and positive place. I have obtained soy beans which I am waiting to see sprout. I have almost finished my edible backyard landscaping goal. I have on Facebook, found many national and international What Vegans Eat inspiring groups with photos of what vegans have made and are eating. There is a vegan gardening group that I consider myself lucky to find bc it combines my two favourite pastimes outside of tle and ukulele. Vegan gardeners. Wow. I never thought that this would eventuate. So I have spread the vegan gardening group recruitment drive far and wide, to create an army of vegan gardeners and their gardens. I am so revved up about it.


 I still also have the chips from fish n chips. The combination of salt oil batter and spuds is a permissible vegan junk food option which I will continue to moderate my fresh fruit and vege mission with. Vegan Battered fritters are a godsend too. Yum.

I have also in the past month finally realised my dream of becoming vegan!

And I am so proud and happy about this choice, that I have been wanting to make for years.

I became a vegetarian at 17 years of age, which is also pretty good, I think, but I have been lacking the information to take the next steps. So thank you to @Troy for sharing all the brilliant reasons (and vegan yummy recipes) to finally enable me to go vegan!

Ahhhhhh so many people making the vegan change! Always astonishes me! In my life now, four people I never would have expected to move in the direction of veganism have been vegan for a month now! I am stoked! But...also...i try not to be too stoked infront of them, it might scare them off !  It is amazing to see many make the choice to help create a future were we are not using animals as resources. Star trek, here we come...everyone in star trek is a vegan, you know. Look it up.
