I can't help but wonder what motive could be bigger than personal health but then again, I realize that there are those here doing it for the animals and not for their health and they believe that this is the biggest motive of all (the animals). In a way, I agree and disagree at the same time. The biggest motive is the one that compells a person to go veg*n in the first place weather it's health, animals, or something else altogether. My motives aren't the same as someone else's and their motives may not be the same as mine, but they are both the "bigger motives" because they were the motives that drove each of us individually to strive for the place that we are at today, regardless of what we call it.

I'm doing this for my health and even though I consider myself vegetarian, I eat more like a vegan so for me, vegetarianism is a combination destination and platform. It's a platform to stay as healthy as I can and to me, healthy means eating things that are grown from the ground and started by seeds instead of eating things that aren't. But it's also a destination because there are always hidden animals to beware of and new lables meanings to decypher and as long as companies insist on making up new names for old ingredients, my job will never be done in trying to "stay one step ahead" in the persuit of not eating the animals.

I've noticed that too, Tr. Seems that parents want their kids to eat all their veggies but yet they freak out when the kid wants to eat nothing but veggies, and grains, and fruit, and plant-based nutrients... what's up with that?

I'm not a teen anymore so I think I'm out of touch with this topic.
