My 21st Veganniversary

This weekend marked 21 years of being vegan for me.  It's interesting to think back about all the changes in my life over those years. Some changes I expected and others I didn't, but I knew from the start that for me being vegan was a lifetime commitment.

When I started out as a vegan in 1990, I knew no other vegans personally, but I was ready to make a break from animal exploitation and so I did.  I know that some people assumed that it was just rebellion, but it was something I felt very strongly about.  Today my feelings about commodifying animals are as strong as ever.  I've learned a lot of new information over the years, and I am amazed and heartened by how the vegan movement has expanded.  Still, I think that we still have a long way to go.  We are still just a very small percentage of the population, and being vegan is easier than it's ever been before.  If you're vegan, share a vegan meal with someone who isn't vegan.  If you aren't vegan, please consider going vegan.   It's easy, healthy, and delicious.  There are many amazing vegan cookbooks and more and more vegan restaurants are popping up all over.  I am glad to help if you have any questions.
