    Hi! So, I am going vegan! However, I need a way to (a) tell my parents and (b) have healthy, balanced meals for every day. Plus, I heard that proccessed food, like Oreos, aren’t vegan!!! And I am worried that my parents will think I am just trying to be unique, like with my homosexuality. And my church keeps on bugging me about going vegan!! HELP!!!

    Congrats on going vegan!

    Some processed foods are vegan, for example, Oreos are vegan in the USA and some other countries.

    Be ready to explain to your parents why you want to be vegan, show them you’ve done your research and know your stuff!

    Eating a balanced vegan diet is easy – you can eat the same things as before you went vegan but just replace the meat with things like beans, lentils, extra vegetables, tofu or faux meats. And replace the other animal products with things like soya milk, dairy-free cheese etc.

    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.
