Why Veganism?

Why be vegan in a world consumed by animal products:

I take a lot of shit for being vegan, but meat eater or not, you can’t deny the level of compassion a vegan homie has in their heart. I’ve been vegan for about a year and a half now. It’s been the best decision I’ve made in terms of what I choose to put in my body, thus far. I started as a vegetarian then slowly transitioned into full veganism. I was rasied on animal products, coming from a Greek family. A meat-a-tarian you could say. After watching many documentaries and doing research, I decided that my taste buds no longer trumped my morals.

Every being on this earth feels pain. Every being experiences fear. If I can do anything, something as small as not contributing to the suffereing these beings face by not consuming animal products, then I am doing my part. Any amount of hate I receive, getting made fun of, asking where I get my protein from, all means nothing in the grand shceme of things. People are scared of change. People are scared of the truth. The truth of where their food comes from. I’m not here to criticize you on your food choices, I’m not here to preach or judge,  I’m here to share my story, to share my experience, and maybe even spread a little love and compassion for the voiceless. At the end of the day you gotta do what’s right for you and your set of beliefs; this is what’s right for me.

Vegan for the animals. Vegan for the planet.  Vegan for my health.
