    So I was vegan for six years and then I started eating animal products again, and I’m looking to change that. My problem is that my boyfriend is serious about meat. He grew up in the mountains and he’s a hunter (not for recreation, he literally feeds his family this way, which I understand) so veganism and vegetarianism he doesn’t really…get.

    We live together, and I’m trying to figure out how to enjoy a cruelty-free diet and avoid arguments. Can anyone help?

    The way to a man’s heart is through his stomache…so…..
    cook him some vegan “ribs”or “chicken nuggets”
    Show him videos, such as “glass walls” or “meet your meat”. show him how much you love animals, get him a pet!! Show him that animals are more than just food, or clothing.

    Good luck! :)

    He’s fine with your decisions, you’re fine with his & that’s what really matters. :)

    I live with my boyfriend that is the same way. If he hunts and uses all of the animal, I can see that as being perfectly fine. When we cook dinner I’ll make vegetarian meals for us both or make mine without the meat in it. It’s more difficult being vegan, I’m sure. If it’s not out of the question, get some of your own chickens and such and get eggs from them! That way you know they’re organic and free range, so in my eye’s it’s okay to eat that animal product. Also, I know it’s expensive, but you know there’s meat and dairy alternatives at some grocery stores, just stock up on that and have it as his only option(;

    I went vegetarian while dating my bf whom is not. He will eat what I cook though, but I don’t live with him. In my experience non-vegetarians will cook themselves something if they want it bad enough, but if they are lazy they will eat what you cook. Just remember, every veg meal he eats makes a difference even if he isn’t all or nothing. Vegan/vegetarianism isn’t about perfection, it’s about making a difference even if they are small to animals it’s a life spared for each vegetarian meal eaten.

    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.
