At the moment, I am a vegetarian, but I would love to go vegan. My parents are really supportive on my decision to be a vegetarian, but they won’t let me go vegan! They don’t think that I can stay healthy. Any tips on staying healthy and convicing my parents? Also, share your stories of difficult parents against your vegetarianism/veganism.
They can’t make you eat something you don’t want to eat.
Simply refuse to eat anything with animal products in it.
As far as staying healthy goes, it’s pretty much using common sense. Eat fruits, veggies, grains, seeds, nuts – and make sure you eat enough of all of it in balance so that you are getting enough calories, protein, and vitamins.
If they approve of you being vegetarian but not vegan, ask them what they think will be missing from your diet as a vegan, then show them where you would get it in a vegan diet
My dad was freaking out when I tried to go vegan, because he thought it would be really hard for me to get everything I needed, but I just went vegan and he caved because I would get more nutrients as a supported vegan than as a starving vegan 😛 try to show your parents all the benefits of going vegan, and how easy it is to get all the nutrients you need in vegetables and fortified foods! Good luck!
