Sounds like a familiar path a lot of us have taken. Transitioning to veganism takes A LOT of research and time. Ask questions, experiment with recipes, jump on peta.org (healthcare/beauty products), read as much as you can on veganism and figure out what you can do to decrease the exploitation of animals. I'm a vegan but, unfortunately, have to wear steel toe boots on a construction site - try finding boots for construction purposes that don't consist of leather. My point is, we can only do so much.

Do your best and learn and don't feel traumatized when you make a mistake or have to use something that isn't entirely vegan friendly. Every little bit helps.

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Good movie.... I suggest you find yourself some cookbooks and jump in. Don't beat yourself up if you backslide as you learn how to cook again. Be c areful not to slip into being a unhealthy potato chip and processed food vegan. It can make you sick. If you need an easy start Happy Herbivore has meal plans you can purcase with recipes that people really like that will end up saving you money as you learn. She uses foods that you can buy at any grocery store. Good luck to you!

Hi everyone! My name is Sandy and I live in NM. I do not know much about being a Vegan. I watched this show on Netflix last night called Vegucated(spelled something like that). All I can say is that it may have been educational but it was vile, disgusting and cruel. I couldn't watch the whole thing. I can't wrap my head around it and I cant get what I saw out of my head--I am traumatized for life. So, here I am, educate me on this lifestyle that I chose.
