    Teach her about the health benefits and cheap options; eventually she’ll come around. Good luck! :)

    Hey NancySegura,

    It’s great that you’ve decided to go vegan! Be sure to let your mom know how healthy being vegan can be: :) Also–e-mail me at and I’ll give you more tips to help get your mom on board. P.S. I speak Spanish. :) :)

    Make a deal with your mum- if you try being a vegan for one month and your still healthy and its not expensive, then you can go vegan for good. I think once your mum realizes that being a vegan doesn’t make you crazy (lol!) or unhealthy/expensive then she won’t have a reason to say no :) Make sure you know your facts and where you’ll get your vitamins/protein from, because I’m sure she has loads of questions. Let her know you want to become a vegan because you want to make a difference for animals. I know how you feel, :( I’m the only vegan in my whole family, even my extended family. Sometimes it’s difficult, but in the end, I do it because I love animals :) Best of luck !!

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
