    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: http://www.pcrm.org/health/diets/vegdiets/frequently-asked-questions-about-nutrition. :) Also–e-mail me at AnnieL@peta2.com 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 !!
