What made you become Vegan/Plant-Based?
I made the discussion to become vegan for mother Earth, the animal's, my health and my children's future.
What benefits do you see/feel since becoming Vegan?
The benefits I have noticed are a healthier digestive system no excessive antacids, and stomach pains have completely left, I have more energy as well as better sleeping patterns.
Are there plenty of Vegan food options where you live?
Yes, tons and I take full advantage of them all including supporting our local vegan restaurants.
Are any of your friends or family Vegan?
Is there anything you don’t like about being Vegan?
I cannot think of anything negative about being vegan other than public perception and answering ignorant questions about protein (LOL).
What is your favourite Vegan meal/food?
There are so many However. I love tofu scrabbled with turmeric, couscous, and fruits and vegetables.
Is there any Vegan food you dislike?
Have you got any top tips for anyone who may be starting a plant-based/vegan lifestyle?
My only advice to anyone starting a plant-based diet is be patient have fun and get creative. you can prepare just about any meal to be vegan. You will feel better knowing animals did not suffer and you will be healthier overall.
Your final thoughts?
Becoming vegan was the best choice I have made in life for my health, my family, the earth, and to stop the suffering of innocent animals whom deserve the right to be here on this earth along with us. I chose the name thecompassionate1 because it is who I am as an individual and in my daily life whether it is work, home, or recreation. We all benefit from compassion and it is what our world needs more of...
