I don't understand this because my friend lives on a farm and has cows and chickens. She told me that if cows are not milked they will die. Why don't vegans drink milk if it is in no way harming the cow? I also don't understand what the point of not eating unfertilized eggs is. What else would happen to the eggs if people didn't eat them? Other animals would probably eat them, but that's the same as people eating them, because people are animals. Another thing I would like to point out is the fact that animals do indeed eat other animals, so why is it considered wrong for people to eat animals? Please no rude remarks because I am in no way meaning to insult anyone. I'm just confused.21 answers 2 days ago Vegetarian & Vegan

I recently saw a video called "If Slaughterhouses had Glass Walls..." and it showed me how cruel the meat industry is to animals. I know that animals must be killed to obtain meat, but I never knew how much animal really suffered until i saw this video. I haven't been able to eat meat without feeling guilty, and today I couldn't eat it at all. I was feeling sickened by the fact that i was eating a creature that endured a lifetime of bloody gory suffering. Is the whole meat industry this cruel? Should i go vegetarian?20 answers 1 day ago Vegetarian & Vegan
Best answer: We get this question so often I have created a little essay to just paste into these. You got some good answers already, too.
Paleo is pretty stupid. Vegetarian is almost vegan.
I used to advise people to make the change gradually. Which is what I did. But I've changed my mind. Of course you can't do it overnight unless you want to start throwing out food but you certainly can start making changes right away. They tell me it takes just 3 weeks to create new habits. So the sooner you start, the sooner it gets to be automatic. Why not start creating new good habits right now.
A really good course in veganism is the “30-day Vegan Challenge”. Its 30 days of short lectures (5 – 10 minutes), some are audio files you can listen to on the go. The rest are video files you can watch on your laptop, phone or tablet. There are a few short essays and quite a few recipes. In 30 days you will know everything a good vegan needs to know. And the whole learning process is not only painless but it’s quite easy. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, has a nice pleasant voice and demeanor, and a pleasure to listen to. Plus she has a great attitude and is very knowledgeable. It normally costs 20 bucks but it’s free if you join it from Cowspiracy. Go to this page:
Scroll to the bottom, and join up.
And you might want to watch Cowspiracy when you get a chance.
A similar option is the “21-day Vegan Kickstart” program. It is is very good. It’s of course nine days shorter. It comprises of “Celebrity tips”, “Nutrition Webcasts”, a “21 Day Meal Plan”, a “Restaurant Guide”, a “Community Forum”, and “Daily Messages”. It includes recipes for the meal plan and even prints out a grocery-shopping list. Oh, it has an app! On the first day of the month you can start it with a bunch of other people so it has a social media aspect as well. It’s free!
Or just to the link below and start exploring.
Sometime after the first month, you should visit the library and take out some books about being vegan. Ask the librarian; they probably have quite a few.
While you are at the library, if you have time sit down and peruse a few issues of the Vegetarian Times. Some libraries let you take magazines home. Some have magazines online, which you can read on your tablet.
As long as you’re at the library, get some cookbooks, too, especially, if you like to bake.
My four favorite authors, (who also have websites are):
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, http://www.compassionatecook.com
Issa Chandra Moskowitz http://www.theppk.com
Chloe Coscarelli http://chefchloe.com
Angela Lidden http://ohsheglows.com
Podcasts, video blogs, regular blogs, web sites, books and magazines are a great way to keep learning. If you like to listen to Podcasts, subscribe to the Compassionate Cooks Podcast. It’s very interesting, informative and a pleasure to listen to. There are some good youtube channels to subscribe to but I don't find them as convenient as podcasts, so I can't recommend any in particular. But here is a good list.
and here is a list of books, too.
If you like movies you can watch "Forks over Knives". You should also watch Cowspiracy.
Oh, and you should read this
Buy the Vegan's Daily Companion. It’s the best $10 you'll spend this month. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau wrote it and she is also the creator of the 30-Day Vegan Challenge.
Soy is a very important food for a vegan. Tofu is sort a vegan staple. At some point you should learn about preparing and cooking tofu dishes.
Don’t worry about becoming 100% vegan right away (or at all). Take your time, do what you think is comfortable and practical. And enjoy the ride.10 answers 2 days ago Vegetarian & Vegan
