Teenage Vegan here
Posted by Meme2012 at 09/23/2013
hi i'm Meme2012. i have been vegan for a year now and vegetarian 2 years before that. i have wanted to be vegan for a really long time now but my parents and family were strongly against it and didn't accept it. i am the only vegan and vegetarian in my whole family and it is difficult to handle sometimes.
i was very lost a year ago but then i met my best friend and she has brought me into her family who are vegan!
We are a vegetarian family with one vegan member, and even that is challenging at times! I find myself making mostly vegan meals for dinner simply so that the nutritional needs of one family member are met.
If possible, cook up some delicious vegan side dishes for your family a couple times a week so that they can see that vegan food is not so "weird". Your mom will appreciate the help in the kitchen, and you'll learn valuable cooking skills. There are literally thousands of vegan dishes online that even the most hard-core carnivores will love.

evil and all they care about is money and drugs that are tested on animals!
Sorry, but you are off base with the B12 issue.
You're buying into a myth perpetrated in ag/medical schools to support the consumption of meat.
I've been vegetarian for since 1975, and a vegan since '85, and have never had a B12 deficiency.
American doctors are notorious for their lack of knowledge in the area of nutrition, compared to many other nations.
