Hey :) Nice to meet you all. I'm a newish vegetarian, but I as I hate cooking I rarely ever ate meat in the first place anyway aside from the occasional bacon strip, so giving it up isn't going to…Continue

"I think you should feel proud that you have such a small impact compared to majority of people by eliminating as much as possible. Plus by growing your own veggies you are actually doing a really good deed for all soil fauna and other little…"

"There's only so much you can do. The point of veganism was never to completely eradicate the mistreatment of animals, but to stop as much mistreatment as humanely possible."

Help with guilt - paying for animal suffering to go vegan?

I have now turned vegan as I personally feel guilty for buying animal related products for the following reasons: Meat = actual dead animals, no brainier there. Dairy = mostly tortured animals who live for their produce and then eventually become meat. Veggies = Grown as a result of wild animals shot and trapped on site, who then become meat. Wheat and grains = Animals shot and bodies wasted or made into pet food. I now live off home grown veggies and pasta only, but I am giving SO MUCH more…See More
