    So I’ve been vegetarian for about 3 years… I’m only 15 and I’ve been wanting to go vegan for quite a while now; but my parents just WON’T let me! They say it would be “too hard” because everyone else in my family are meat eaters. There’s probably no way i’m going to be able to convince them to let me go vegan. So does anybody know what I can do? Not necessarily to convince them; but just ways to still be vegan involved…

    That’s SO wonderful that you want to go vegan! I’m sorry that your parents, like most parents sadly, aren’t understanding nor accepting of it. I’ve been vegan for almost five years now and veganism has a lot of health benefits! I very rarely get sick; only a couple times a year and that’s it. Before that I was sick every couple of weeks.. I lacked an immune system. I’m a lazy packaged food vegan (can’t cook), and even then all my blood test results and everything came back amazing. I take vegetarian multivitamins by Nature’s Plus which has a good source of B-12 (this is important) and vegan Vitamin D3 every day by Nature’s Plus as well. Most of the US population is deficient in D3 so it’s not just a vegan issue. It’s good to take your vitamins regardless of if you’re veg or not, but meat eaters need MORE vitamins and supplements than we do. :] I also suggest getting Silk DHA+ Omega 3 Brain Health soy milk! Omega 3s are important too and it tastes great. It has a good source of calcium as well.

    I had the same problem as you. I had been a vegetarian for about 5 years and when I was 13 I wanted to go vegan. Of course, my parents said no. So I let it drop. A little less year later, I got fed up with them saying no. So I went vegan. I didn’t tell them for about a month or so. My advice to you is learn how to cook nutritious meals for yourself, because you might be doing all the cooking for yourself for a bit until your parents accept it. Also, make sure you keep yourself healthy and make sure you’re getting all the required vitamins and minerals that you need so your parents cant whip out the old ‘I told you so!’ line if you get sick :) Good luck !
