Someone actually just asked me this on Instagram so I thought I’d share my answer here.
I started because of one cow.
…. I paint animals and I suddenly realised, as I photographed it, that it was going to be dead next time I went there. I wanted to buy it and save it, but couldn’t.
I’ve not eaten pig for a long time anyway as they are intelligent.
I realised I was fighting an inner battle I didn’t need to fight….. That I was junking out on processed crap that was making me fat and bloated when I actually love experimental cookery. So I decided to go full vegetarian.
I then watched a lot of documentaries on veganism and I like a challenge.
So here I am. 99% vegan.
The other 1% is the trying to get away from eggs. I love eggs and don’t know if any alternatives yet. When I do then I’ll be 100%.
Are you vegetarian or vegan? What made you start?
