How to Approach the Topic of Veganism with Loved Ones

In her blog post Vegan Frustration, Lavender Lucy expresses her frustration about wanting her loved ones to be informed yet not wanting to create a hindrance within the relationship. I get this. It makes sense. Often people can misunderstand your reasoning and take what you are saying as criticism and ridicule to their lifestyle. The thing is that most people don’t like being told what they should and shouldn’t be eating, and so their defense mechanisms will come out. I know it, I’ve seen and experienced it myself. What I think needs to happen to avoid this, is taking a calm and informative approach like Ruby does in her blog post Osteoporosis & why milk doesn’t give you calcium when people discuss touchy subjects with their family or friends.

The changes I have noticed in my body since going vegan. Ahh, where do I begin?

As I have mentioned before on my blog, I didn’t just wake up one morning and decide to go vegan, I went vegetarian first. After trying to avoid eating meat for a couple of months, I decided to go officially vegetarian at the end of June in 2016. So, at that time I was still eating ice cream, eggs and cheese. But, within those first couple of months being vegetarian I began to drop these foods out of my diet and would only eat them when there were no other options (that I was aware of at the time) like at restaurants and sorts. When I avoided these foods and then ate them after several weeks of not having them I noticed changes in my bodies digestion. I would get horrible stomach aches. So, I finally put two and two together and realized that the one night stands with dairy products needed to end. And let me tell you my body has thanked me.
