Candide woman who wants change everything Hi all ! This is my first post in this forum, but I sincerely hope not the last. I'm Bénédicte, I'm French and I try to make a transition to vegan after years of ignorance. At first, I was just curious about being slim, then being healthy. So I was curious and read a lot of blogs, watched a lot of youtube videos. I like animals, of course, but I like humans too (at least most of them). And then, I saw documentary about GMO and more specifically about Monsanto. And I am so in shock about what happens to farmers that don't want to be a part of it, and are forced to, I'm even more feeling bad to see HOW MANY products are actually more or less related to Monsanto (even Apple and Microsoft). I feel a bit scared and panicked, because I want to do something, but feel so lonely facing those giants. Am I the only one ? Is there anywhere I can go ? Somehting I can do ? I am not extreme in my words and thoughts, because I'm conscious that we cannot radically change the world in one year (and I definitely need to use microsoft for my work). So, what is it about ? I sincerely hope to meet great people over here and share loads of strategies. Sorry for the long post, I was desperate ! See you all soon :) :) Post Date: 11/13/15, Replies: 0 11/13/15 0

New Member Hi, my name is Emily and I am currently looking to transition into veganism. I have tried in the past and made it a year being strictly vegan. However, I keep going back and forth with it and am having trouble sticking with it. I really want to stick with veganism but I don't know anyone who is vegan so it's difficult.

Just saying Hi! Hi, I’m Steve, been a working my way up to being a vegan for 35 years, finally stopped eating and using animal products last year. First, mainly for health reasons, then for animal rights and environmentalism. Have become so enthusiastic that I created a website,, to become throughly involved in the “movement”, see it as part of my involvement with Buddhism. Was shocked by the far reaching and horrible effect the non-vegan food industry has on our planet. Post Date: 09/20/15, Replies: 1 09/20/15 1

Vegan crisis!!! Never done this before so I guess I'll begin with hello! Having a crisis here. I've been travelling in Asia now for 2 months and although I'm loving every mintue of it, it's really making me think about the choices Im making in my life. You see before I left England I was vegan for about 3 months. And I really loved it, I felt amazing, not just physically but mentally I felt I was more in tune with my body and the world. I felt in control of what I was putting into my body which was fantastic. I fully expected every single argument against Vegananisim to hit me left, right and centre as soon as it was "revealed" that I was vegan. Even down to the pizza guy dictating to me accross the counter why I should be eating his over processed, disgustingly cheesy pizza and trying to force a counter argument out of me (I told myself I would never be a "preachy vegan" and only explain why I was a vegan if people asked and were curious into the matter; a rule I still stick by to this day.) Anyway these months of being Vegan and various "you go girl!" And "It's just a phase" it was creeping up to the time of departing to go travelling. To the build up of leaving I some how got brainwashed by people that I would miss out on the delecacies when travelling if I remained Vegan. I ignored it as first but then I started researching into why you shouldnt be vegan (I know, stupid!.) Thus leaving me in this position now. 2 months into my travels and currently not vegan (please dont hate me) feeling very indecisive about what to do. At home I was always a spiritual person but since being away I have really come into my own about it and have gained tonnes of confidence in the way of what I believe and how I wish to live my life. I realised after eating a non-vegan diet whilst away I began to feel very bloated and lethargic and just not as light and energetic as before. I feel like I need to go back to veganism as I was so passionate and vibrant before and I want to continue feeling that way. Basically I would love any advice and support about feeling unsure about Veganism, being vegan whilst travelling (as I am quickly learning that the language barrier can often cause problems in this area) and dealing with opinions from others about being a vegan (I never really got used to 'arguing' with people about why I was vegan so it made me quite self concious about telling people as I was afraid of the en slaught of judging.) Also just to skin the subject, I took multi vitimains before but I'm worried that if I become vegan again when travelling I wont be able to get any and this will damage my health. Thank you for reading me ridicuously long post, any advice is apreciated. Post Date: 08/20/15, Replies: 6 08/20/15 6

Very Veg Curious in College Hey everyone, You can call me by my nickname, Kayales. I'm in college, where I run cross country and track. I also enjoy playing guitar and writing. After three years of Meatless Fridays, which were started by my mom, I'm taking the plunge into full vegetarianism. I decided to make this change after reading a book that I found by chance at Goodwill, "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows." Shortly afterward, one of my friends at college, who is vegan, convinced me to watch the documentary "Earthlings" with her. The movie as well as the book really spoke to me. Despite taking environmental science three years earlier in high school, where we watched "Food Inc" and "Forks Over Knives" as a class, I didn't seem to get the message that eating animals is (in my opinion) cruel, detrimental to our health, and entirely unnecessary. But suddenly, after experiencing the terrifying truths of "Earthlings" and re-watching "Food Inc," I understood: eating animals is not something I would like to continue to do. So, despite being a college athlete with friends and family concerned about me Getting Enough Protein with a capital P, I'm ready and willing to take the plunge into full vegetarianism. Today I ordered a wonderful book from Amazon called "No Meat Athlete" as well as a veg cookbook for college students, both of which I think will help me on my journey. In the meantime, however, I am open to any comments, suggestions, or simple hellos. Whatever you feel like offering. :) I'm looking forward to meeting you all, Kayales Post Date: 07/21/15, Replies: 1 07/21/15 1

Fruit and Veg I am not a veggie and was just wondering what fruits and veg do you buy. As a meat eater I buy organic because of its impact on the environment but as vegans how do you avoid crops especially organic that are widly fertilised using bone meal and blood meal both slaughter house by products. I was just wondering how you overcome this hurdle as all fruit and veg that I have seen in greengroses and supermarkets does not seem to lable what fertilizers are used, just wether they are grown organicly or conventionaly.

Biking Europe to help animals Hi lovely people! Me and my friend Magdalena have been thinking about combining travels and social activism for a while and today we started an indiegogo campaign called ''Raising awareness and helping animals'' and we really need your help :) We want to bike Central Europe and the Balkans to help rescuing animals from slaughterhouses and raise awareness about what's going on with our climate. To make this happen we need to raise $ 1,500 in 35 days. Every contribution is priceless to us ,even one dollar can make a difference Post Date: 06/14/15, Replies: 1 06/14/15 1
