For most of my life, I’ve had a distaste for meat. I didn’t like to touch it when it was raw, and I didn’t like the way it smelled (especially chicken). I grew up not eating red meat and continued that practice into adulthood. I did not drink milk, and the smell of eggs makes me nauseous. Given those factors alone I feel I was destined to become vegan. However, I did eat cheese, fish, turkey, and chicken on occasion. I dabbled in vegetarianism and became a pescatarian for many years until one day I had enough.
I started researching healthy living and learned about all the benefits of going vegan. I also started learning about how animals are farmed and what they go through during the process of becoming our dinner. I didn’t like what I read and what I saw. Honestly, it made me sad. So, I decided I would make a stand for animals, healthy living, and the environment. I chose to become vegan.
