Happy Mothers Day. I lost my mum to cancer when I was 10 and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about her.
In a few short years she made a huge impact on me – she taught me about feminism, how to write a story, how to braid my hair.
Taught me that cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients is the only way to make a meal and that food that comes in a box isn’t real food.
Most importantly she taught me that animals shouldn’t suffer and die so that we have something to eat. That every animal has a mother who loves them.
So on this day – Mothers Day – please go vegan.
I’ve been vegan for nearly a year and a half, and my only regret is not doing it sooner. As soon as I started reading about what happens to farmed animals (and seeing some very disturbing undercover footage and documentaries), it was a no-brainer. The only option was to go vegan.
I know others have said the same thing, but for me this was probably the most important and profound decision I’ve ever made.
My main reason for going and staying vegan for life is for the animals, but it’s also a bonus that it can be one of the healthiest ways of eating, it makes me feel great, and it makes a huge positive impact on the environment to go vegan.
I just love you! I’ve had How it All Vegan for years and purchased La Dolce Vegan for my mom a few years ago. So happy to see you are still thriving and fighting the good fight!
