the vegan lifestyle: not about the food….
a vegan lifestyle is about way more than what you eat. the principles of veganism branch out into social, environmental, ethical and moral grounds. now that’s not to say that a vegan lifestyle isn’t about your food!
okay, it’s a little about the food…
vegan food is delicious, varied, abundant, affordable and, at times, epic. there’s a saying that “anything you can make i can make vegan. and it’s true! today there are vegan alternatives to everything. so you don’t have to feel you’re “missing out”- in fact, going vegan usually expands your culinary experience as you get to try new and exciting dishes.
veganism is for everyone!
the most important thing about a vegan lifestyle (to me) is that it’s for anyone and everyone! there is an air of exclusivity at times around veganism and this is an unfortunate byproduct of a holier-than-thou minority of vegans. in reality, veganism fits into every lifestyle. you don’t have to change who you are- just what you eat (and, as we talked about above- even that doesn’t have to change that much!) so don’t let the few vegan assholes out there dissuade you- veganism welcomes all kinds. there are enough animals to not kill, and enough cruelty to not inflict for all of us!
