Why go vegan?
Why kill animals when you don’t have to?
As a vegan, you can live a satisfying, healthy, happy lifestyle.
I’m a vegan, thus the things you find on this site, from the recipes to the suggestions on cleaning products, will be vegan themselves to the best of my ability.
Don’t know what a vegan is? Here’s a quote from the wiki article of veganism:
The British Vegan Society defines veganism in this way:
[T]he word “veganism” denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude — as far as is possible and practical — all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.
So in a nutshell, this is what I believe. To clarify the “possible and practical” parts for newcomers, our world is so saturated in animal products that even the tires on your car have them in them. So, I do as much as I can. Eliminating them from your diet is the easy part.
I’ll add more to this section over time, but for right now here is a good FAQ for you, written by vegans and rather informative.
