The vegan lifestyle is often times frowned upon due to many misconceptions. When people ask you why you have chosen to become a vegan it’s nice to give them a few key reasons. You don’t want to baffle them with technical jargon nor talk down to them in any way. The goal is, after all, for them to respect you and your lifestyle. On top of that you should actively want to convert others to the lifestyle as well. This shouldn’t be done with force or even with strong persuasion, but just with facts. So when you are asked why you became a vegan, respond with these three key reasons.
- You’re against the cruelty of animals. Animals are living things and are not food. They were not meant to be kept as property as they await their death. Eating is a more enjoyable experience because you know that animals were not harmed in the process.
- You leave a light eco-footprint. It is proven that the production of animal meat is harsh on the environment and has been linked to accelerating global warming.
- Vegan eating is healthy. Many people suffer from problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and have heart problems. Those on a vegan diet have drastically lower levels of cholesterol and are much healthier people.
