Dr. McDougall released an article in an email I received today. The end of the article tells how to take action for animals.

I so love what you wrote here, Terrine. Thank you for sharing your path and your heart with us.

There are so many ways to make a difference! Some folks hand out flyers. Others take part in challenges for their friends to try meat-free Mondays. A lot of us sign online petitions, or write or call our representatives when legislation comes up.

I do all of those things. But what's worked best for me is to not force my views on people - I just wait until it comes up (and it always comes up!) I like to tell people why I am choosing to live this way, but only when they are ready to hear.

I encourage you to find ways that you are comfortable right now, when you're making lots of changes! Let me know if you want to talk more about suggestions and opportunities to make a difference.

:)

I have been transitioning to a vegan diet. There are so many things to consider. I started for health reasons but this has opened the door to learning about the suffering of animals due to factory farming and the predominant lifestyle of human beings. I am also learning what impact this has on the environment. I believe a whole foods plant based lifestyle is the ethical choice and I feel good when my actions are in line with this ideal. I want to increase my commitment to veganism and I want to be brave enough to speak up. I still have fear speaking up and telling people. I do want to be a positive influence though and I am here to learn.
