If you’re reading this then you’re probably already vegan, or thinking of taking it up. We all have different reasons that have brought us here, to this choice: animal rights; economical; world hunger; environmentalism; health; spirituality, and more. Some of those reasons may not even be apparent to us when we first make that change in our lives. In my case, like a lot of other people, I went vegan as the next natural step from vegetarianism, and as part of an animal rights centred belief.
As I’ve aged, those reasons have taken on different priorities. They’ve always been there but as my understanding of life changes so have the priorities.
That’s the purpose behind this piece, it’s a chance for me to examine my reasons, and what”vegan” is to me.
