I was vegan for a while and It just wasn’t working out. Anyway, I’m vegetarian at the moment and try to avoid milk and eggs, I normally eat soy and almond milk, but at school most of my meals are based around cheese (don’t know why people assume all vegetarians must live off cheese :s). I am scared that if I stay vegetarian I won’t be taken seriously if i want to take action for animals. I also want to work for peta when I graduate from university but I don’t think I will be accepted. What’s your opinion?
@GRose she is talking about the cheese at her school -.-
and surprise being vegan doesn’t mean getting sick
it’s about replacing the nutrition you get from animal products with those from natural sources.
Being a vegetarian is a big step in helping animals. So good job for that!
If you are proud to help animals then it doesn’t matter what they think of you.
Be proud and state it when meat is a topic or just randomly.
Just make sure you have your reasons backed up because they may try to challenge you.
In the end all they will be able to do is see it your way or continue to be dumb and come back with a “well i like meat. Torture is delicious.” and to that you can just say
To each his own.
The more you grow and learn the easier it will be to become a vegan.
Besides you can bet that there will be PLENTY of alternatives to animal products in college.
Don’t worry so much you are already so far ahead.
I 100% know how you feel. I use to be a vegan but for various reasons I haven’t been able to have such a strict diet. And it’s so frustrating. I’ve been eating more vegetarian than vegan the past six months. I hope to get back on track soon but it just hasn’t been possible recently. You got to keep in mind that it’s always better than nothing at all. You’re still making a positive difference. My advice would be to kind of start weening any animals products one by one out of your diet and in no time you’ll be back to a vegan lifestyle.
