The Connection between being a Heathen and Veganism

At what point in your life did you make that connection between being Vegan and also being a Heathen?
How did you make it?
The transition for me was a difficult one.I went through stages.
I was very angry at myself for not making it sooner. Then I was angry because my friends who are "Pagan" but not "Vegan" are not making the connection. Then I was just angry because there was slaughter and gore all around me and I felt powerless to stop it.
I have settled into the acceptance stage of it now. I am attempting to educate, but not push. I make Vegan meals for work functions and my co workers love them and ask for the recipes. My 8 year old son is Vegan as is my year old grandson and my 27 year old sister.
The local group that I belong to is hosting a public get together in Sept to try and help educate the public. It is akin to a Vegan Pagan Pride Day of sorts...

It's an interesting point for me, as I am Asatru and therefore in the minority as a vegetarian! For me I'm not sure the connection came together, if that makes sense... the reason I stopped eating animals was an incredibly personal one.
