Hey hey

I recently turned vegetarian, 2 days ago I think, but I would like to be a vegan. I guess I'm pretty much vegan if you don't count the dairy and eggs my mom makes me eat every now and again.

I may have just gone vegetarian, but I honestly never really liked meat, like, ever. It was a really easy decision to make.

Sooo, yeah! I'll try my best to be active, because this place looks like lots fun.

Welcome Jessiecat! Glad to have you here! Out of curiosity, what made you want to make the switch?

Hi Jessiecat,

Mercy For Animals has a nicely-designed vegan nutrition guide, free to download:



“Under the twinkling trees was a table covered with Guatemalan fabric, roses in juice jars, wax rose candles from Tijuana and plates of food — Weetzie's Vegetable Love-Rice, My Secret Agent Lover Man's guacamole, Dirk's homemade pizza, Duck's fig and berry salad and Surfer Surprise Protein Punch, Brandy-Lynn's pink macaroni, Coyote's cornmeal cakes, Ping's mushu plum crepes and Valentine's Jamaican plantain pie."

from Witch Baby, Francesca Lia Block, 1991

Well... as I said before, I've never cared for the taste. But let's look deeper to find the reasoning...

I never really understood when people would go on and on about how great bacon is, or steak, you name it. I would also love to feel like I'm doing something with my life, by saving animals, whether I save one little pig or ten million little pigs.
And don't forget all the people that say things like, "I can't believe they eat dogs in China!", or whatever, and then they go around and eat cute little piggies...like, seriously?

Annnd I think my aunt's brain washing is taking affect. She gave me truck loads of vegetarian/vegan stickers. They said stuff like, "Leather is dead cow skin" and "pigs are friends"...or things along those lines... I kinda stuck them all over the desk I had at the time. Thanks Erin! You're the best aunt ever!

....There you have it. My aunt is what made me switch, whether it be through brain washing or not. You're welcome

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.
