Seriously, why would I rely on animals for sustenance if I don't need to?
We live with an abundance of eating options. For me, including meat in my diet just isn't an option I'm willing to consider.
I think human kinds reliance on animals as an exploitable resource is sickening and being vegan is part of my stance against that exploitation and against the horror that is factory farming.
Since I've been vegan I've felt healthy and energetic. I've been eating the most amazingly delicious food that is good for my body and my conscience. I'm so proud that no animals need to die or suffer for me to stay alive and be happy.
