I found this forum by google searches for vegan diiscussion groups. I am not a complete vegan, I am a born again vegetarian. I also have catering business that I am trying to promote. We cater to both omnivores & carnivores, but we promote Veganism.
I have been posting on a blog to prevent horse slaughter for the past year and have been able to convince several people to consider a vegan and/or vegetarian diet. I have some vegan friends and we get together to share recipes, but we don't really talk about the challenges of being vegan. I looked on-line and found this site. It looked interesting and supportive. I have been vegetarian for 9 years and vegan for 2.
I am a new Vegan. I was vegetarian on and off for 20 years or so. I sensed most of vegetarian people are either New Age, Buddhist, or sick who desperate to get better. I am happy to find out that many christians are Vegan. While ago, I watched "Food Inc" that motivated me to be a Vegan. But I was not successful. I watched "Earthling" did not expect to get much more information different from "Food Inc". Wow, I was wrong! I screamed and cried!!! I was shocked. I became Vegan that day. Also I found some useful articles on internet about biblical proof why Vegan is good and Godly way of eating. I try not to educate or argue with friends because I want to avoid heated argument. I just tell them to watch "Earthling" movie and get on "Christian Vegan" site. That explain all why I became Vegan. So many people don't realize that we are so polluting the earth which God given us to live and destroying future generations health and contributing world hunger. We need to repent!!
