    I’m only 15 so I can’t really make all the choices that I’d like. Can someone please tell me how to convince my father that being vegan will not make me physically ill and that protiens not from meat, eggs etc is available.

    That seems like a pretty inefficient way to shop. Maybe you could talk to him about buying certain things in bulk, like beans, rice, pasta, etc. Buying in bulk would save him money, and ensure that you have food to eat.

    How do I explain. My family, scratch that my father shops differently than others may. He plans a meal buys the ingredients, thats that. Maybe some cereal too right. but I don’t exactly have a cupboard full of ingredients to just choose from.

    He wont have to buy two different types of diets :) Chances are, he’s already buying the staples of a vegan diet like beans, fruits and veggies, pasta etc. its pretty simple to go vegan without soy milk, faux cheese, and faux meat. A plus side is that most grocery stores are now carrying things like soy milk, tofu, and fake meat for relatively low prices ! If you really want to prove a point of it not being expensive, take a look in you cupboards sometime and point out all the things that are already vegan.

    update. He is considering letting me be vegan for my 16th birthday. But I have to prove that we can do it inexpensively. And ive told him about the articles on here about how you can be vegan very cheep. Except his argument is that it can be expensive to buy two completly different types of diets. I can’t really argue there. He may have a point.

    Maybe your Dad’s just worried about you. Be tenacious…don’t give up!…but be patient and gentle and compassionate about your approach and he’ll see you’re making a mature and well-thought-out decision. :)
