I think this was a very good article. I think sometimes people are very judgemental of themselves and each other. I don't think anything has to be all or nothing.

Not a lot of information in the article, but some good points to get people thinking about becoming vegan.

In the interest of full disclosure, I will admit that I am not 100% vegan. However, I'm mostly vegan and I truly believe that it is the best diet for personal health, animal welfare, and the environment.

If anyone is considering going vegan, there are some great resources online. Vegetarian Resource Group and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine are two organizations with a wealth of information on their websites. PCRM features a 21-day Kickstart program with recipes and articles to motivate would-be vegans and get them off to a healthy start.

I have several vegan cookbooks for inspiration, but you can find vegan recipes all over the internet.

This is really helpful, thank you! I am going to have to read Skinny Bitch, I actually had no idea it was about veganism. lol I also really like Alicia Silverstone's "the Kind Diet" book. She is so sweet and she does make it easy to be kind to yourself; such as eating the meat in your fridge, or give it away and don't beat yourself up when you slip up.

I, for one, will admit, that I caved this evening and ate cheese pizza with my daughter. Sigh... close, we'll eventually get there!
