Why Vegan?

Why Vegan? you ask, well, let me ask you: why not?

I generally dislike when people answer to questions with another question, but I think this time I’m allowed to do it.
We live in a time where the abundance of information and food/fashion/lifestyle alternative choice leave no space for excuses like “I can’t go Vegan, I wouldn’t know what to eat/wear” or “Going Vegan is expensive, I can’t afford it”, etc.

Nowadays a Vegan lifestyle means: trying to cause the less possible harm to any other living beings. And no, it doesn’t mean Vegans only care about animals and not about humans.
Veganism can actually save this world, but don’t take my word for it – you can find all the info you need on reputable publications. Here’s a few interesting links:

  • Science: Veganism could save the world, new study argues
  • Conservation Magazine: What if the whole world went vegan?
  • Global Citizen: 9 Reasons Why Veganism Can Save the World
  • The Independent: Why everyone becoming vegan or vegetarian would save millions of lives
  • And the list could go on, and on, and on…

    So why did I go Vegan, you ask? Before that particular day, in the warm summer of 2012, I’d been vegetarian for many, many years, thinking I was doing enough. Vegans did look like an extreme sect that might only feed on grass or salad. Then one simple thing changed my life forever. Not only mine, but my husband’s too (at the time boyfriend) – imagine a tall Frenchman who used to say “I could never live without cheese” (and now he’s Vegan AF).
    So what exactly changed our mind instantly, and changed the way we look at the world, at life, at the brainwashed society we all belong to? Simply put, the best speech you’ll ever hear. Put your pre-digested ideas aside, sit down, listen – and I mean it, really listen carefully.

    After you’ve watched this, please feel free ask me anything you want. I will be happy to help you, like I’ve done with many others. If you have doubts, or questions, and want help to find a way to change the world for the better, just reach out. I had the same doubts, the same questions once! Being Vegan is not about being “perfect”, far from that, it’s a “work in progress”, that will last a lifetime.

    But for now, I will leave you with 5 awesome documentaries to watch, in order to understand the benefits of going Vegan, the reasons to do it and the impact it will have on the world:
    1. Earthlings
    2. Forks over Knives http://www.forksoverknives.com/
    3. Food Inc.
    4. Meat the Truth:
    5. Cowspiracy.

    Let’s change this world together, shall we?
