    Meat Free For 15 Years

    I started slow by eliminating red meat at first.  I started it because I wanted to lose weight.  Hasn't helped me with that any, but hopefully spared a few lives.  I always thought eating animals was disgusting, but didn't know about vegetarianism until I got...

    Vegan: A Kinder Way To Live =D

    There is a lot of cruelty within the egg and dairy industries. Hens crammed 5-6 in a cage for eggs (free range are packed into sheds by the thousands) and dairy cows artificially inseminated every cycle to give birth to a baby that will either be turned into veal or given back...

    Why I Eat Veggies and Thwart the Advances of the Big Mac Monster

    I've always loved to eat vegetables - even when I was just a kid.  I became a vegetarian at age fourteen.  I don't hate people, nor do I  love non-human beings more than people by any means.  But why, when it's not necessary, should I inflict suffering on...

    The Day I Came to My Senses...

    This story isn't very long, so you needn't worry if you are avoiding big reads. If someone were to ask me what influenced me to become a vegeterian, I could probably narrow it down to three things.  I have always loved animals, and was an animal activist even before I ...

    It Started Very Slowly For Me, But I'm Never Going Back

    I've been a vegetarian for almost year and a half now, but I've been restrictive on my meat intake for much longer. The first time I really didn't want to eat a certain type of meat was toward the end of my freshman year of high school.  We were dissecting fetal pigs...

    Really Enjoing Being a Vegetarian, I Feel It Is the Right Thing to Do

       I have been a vegetarian for the last 2 years now. I still think that I haven't made any better decision in my life. I always hated meat. Even as a child I never liked it, but I had to eat it.     What made me go vegetarian? I just feel it is the...

    I would like to completely cut meat

    and animal products out if my life. Does anybody have any advise for me? Last time I tried, I was constantly getting sick. I am guessing its because I wasn't getting the correct vitamins and minerals.
