    im 14, and my family and friends are 100% percent against it. i cant get any of them to read or watch anything about what they do to to animals, and my mom and i talk about it all the time and she just says im way to young and its so unheathy. ive shown her that it really isnt unheathy and that i will still get nutrients, but she still wont let me.i even use the alternitives to milk but i always have to go back to using real milk and eggs. Any one have any advice about how they got their parents to let them go vegan?
    o i am a strict vegitarian. i dont use anything that test on animals, i dont eat gelitan, seafood, or meat…ovbiously

    My eating habits were already… ehh.. weird. And I think when I was a young child, if they tried to get me to eat something different, I just wouldn’t eat. That’s how I got them to let me be vegetarian (although I didn’t think about it that way- I just didn’t want to eat meat, along with most everything).
    So while my mom didn’t like the idea, she wasn’t going to not let me do it and not buy me food.
