    Let's Go Natural...

    I have been doing my vegan thing for awhile now, the way I feel is so amazing not having the pollution of mistreated, tormented animal karmic energy in me. I do believe that it does leave an imprint on your soul, and the fact that it is bad for the earth, and that all of us...

    Vegan Since 2005... Vegetarian Since 1992

    I went vegetarian as a teenager for health reasons and because it fitted with the spiritual ideas I was exploring. It wasn't really much to do with animals or the ethical concerns until much later. In fact it was only in 2004-5 that I really started to think about whether or not...

    I Am Mostly Vegan...

    I've been a vegetarian for 1 year and I've gradually given up diary products. Eggs were easy to give up because I've never liked eggs. Milk (which I never consumed much or liked that much) I replaced with soy and almond milk. The reason I say I'm mostly vegan is because cheese is...

    I Am a Chegan (cheatin' Vegan)

    Actually, I'm not a pure vegan because I cheat sometimes.  I find it impossible to be driving around and feeling hungry, and stopping in a small town expecting to find something vegan.  However, there is a Mexican restaurant in town where I can pick up an order of...

    Vegan Here =3!

    Been a vegan for almost 3 years now and loving it. :P It all started when I came across videos of animal testing thanks to my friend, which eventually led me to factory farming videos. It was painful and horrendous to see, but I'm glad I did see what I did because it has...

    It has been a month

    since I started eating 100% vegan(before I was simply a vegetarian) and it has really started to pay off! I just feel great and I can look myself in the mirror and feel good for once! Best choice I've ever made.

    I Have A Snack Once Every 2 Weeks

    I am an organic vegan because my child hates meat. I found the change easy and it saves me a lot of money. However once every few weeks I will have cake made with eggs, pizza or a hamburger. I still think I am a vegan but I enjoy a change now and then.

    Decision
