Some decide to try a vegetarian diet only to give up in a short time because they miss a favorite food or maybe their family pressured them to come back to a meat diet. Some people decide to try vegetarian on day a week and never go beyond. I have heard of people who are vegan but decide to revert to their old ways during the holidays when family dinners consist of turkey or ham and hurting grandma’s feelings would cause irreparable damage to the family quilt. Then there are those who have gone vegetarian and transitioned to a vegan lifestyle or went vegan cold-turkey (no pun) and have stuck with it over the years.
People choose vegan or vegetarian for a variety of reasons. Health, animal welfare are two of the most popular. I often ask people their reasons for going vegan or vegetarian and many just forget why and say they just decided to try it and stuck with it.
So, I’m curious. What was your reason for going vegan or vegetarian? Did you want to improve your health? Doing it for the animals or another reason? Let me know!
