Throughout the last six months, I've been steadily gaining more information about veganism. My journey started with health concerns and has slowly evolved into something much more. When people hear I'm vegan, among other questions that they ask, I'm often asked, "Why?!" The answer, at first, was clear cut: "For health reasons!" Now, six months later, I'm finding it harder to answer. It's not just moral or health concerns. It's not a mixture of all sorts of things wrapped up into one big concern.
I found the Vegan Starter Kit site one night and was overwhelmed with info (in a good way). I'd recommend this site to anyone who is even remotely curious about going plant-based. I even thought that "vegan" had some sort of weird connotation to it and that automatically meant you would need to move out to a communal and make your own laundry detergent (haha). The more you delve into WHY people are actually vegan (and the reasons are countless), it opens up your mind to the benefits in health, the environment, spiritually and ethically.
