I hit a turning point in my life when…I became vegan.
A boring answer, I know. But it is completely true. If you ask my husband he will tell you I am a passionate person. When I decided to go vegan in 2011 it was an idea that grew into a passion, that grew into a complete way of life.
I found a true love for animals and for understanding nature, food and the environment. I don’t push it on others; that isn’t my way. But I will tell you I’m vegan if you ask why I didn’t order the burger or the ice cream. And if you ask why I’m vegan I will tell that too. So don’t ask me and then tell people that I get on my soap box about it- that isn’t true.
Veganism was a culmination of all of my varied interests and questions growing up. I was a childhood environmentalist, I wavered back and forth on meat eating because it always kind of grossed me out, I loved animals and I always wanted to be one of those “healthy” people. Being vegan just clicked for me. I didn’t expect to be easy, but it was. I didn’t expect it to come so naturally, but it did.
It started for my health and continued because of my love and respect for all things living. Yes, fruits & vegetables are living too, but let’s not get crazy…
