I sought out a veg*n lifestyle for my own health reasons, and since I've been a part of the boards, I must say, my reasons have mutated....<br><br><br><br>
Since becoming a member of this extremely diverse and WISE community, I've switched my dogs to a different food - more friendly to other animals and thier own bodies. They've responded well, and we all seem to be happy with the change.<br><br><br><br>
I've also considered my food choices a little more. I was still eating fish until recently, because my family thought...well, fish isn't meat....and I really didn't want to argue. I'm a sucker, and I hate to create conflict if someone else is going to the trouble of preparing me a nourishing meal.<br><br><br><br>
I shop differently, I'm considerate of "not tested on animal" clauses on shampoos and soap products, and I look for obvious animal derived ingredients in products. The point is I LOOK, I PAY ATTENTION!<br><br><br><br>
I know I'm not 100% where I would like to be, but every step is a step in the right direction. I lunched the other day with a friend and ordered a side of "vegetarian" black beans. My waiter actually asked if I was veg*n, and I had to say "no, but I'm working on it". I am working on it, I've become a better shopper, a careful orderer in retaurants, and a more conscientous individual all around.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks to VB and the people here who continue to support the hard core, and the soft core"ontheirway" veg*ns. One day we may all be VEGAN.......until then, we only hope to grow through support and enlightenment.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks to all for their wisdom, and support, until I am there...I will remain a "Veg*n in Training" with hopes of one day becoming a PROUD CARD CARRYIN' VEGETARIAN!!!!!!
