10 reasons to go vegan

Since going vegan, I have been asked by so many people why I chose this lifestyle. There have been a lot of these moments…

However, it has also got me thinking. I’m always taken a little off guard and never know what to say when I’m asked this question, so I normally end up mumbling something about loving animals. The truth is, whilst my love for animals is my primary reason, I didn’t realise how many other amazing reasons I have until I started writing them all down. I thought it’d be fun to share my top 10 with you all, and also to maybe have somewhere to refer people to next time I get asked the question ;)…

My Top 10 Reasons for being Vegan

1. I have always loved animals, and this George Bernard Shaw quote pretty much sums it up Quotation-George-Bernard-Shaw-friends-Meetville-Quotes-156371

2. Animals are all sentient beings and I don’t believe that any of them have less of a right to live than I do

3. Esther the wonder pig is so awesome and has shown us just how similar pigs can be to the dogs we love and share our homes with

6. At 20 years old, I’ve finally given myself a good enough reason to learn to cook IMG_1392
