Sometimes we come across a video talking about being vegan that is not only touching but tells the plain truth. That’s exactly the case with this video. The real challenge about going vegan is definitely not the radical switch to a new diet. Of course, it takes some time to get accustomed to this meatless and dairy-free diet.
In the last ten years, vegans in the United Kingdom shot through the roof. To be exact, the numbers of vegans have exploded by 350% up to 542,000. However, the best part of it is that almost 50% of them are between 15-34 years old. So, on the one hand parents raising up their children as vegans is becoming more and more trendy.
About two months ago, a person on facebook who had recently adopted to a vegan lifestyle was telling me about the fights and adversities she was facing from people since she had gone vegan. She asked for advice how to deal with it. First, I told her that it was not unusual to face these challenges and that probably every vegan is going through a hard time when he or she jumps on the “vegan train”
Do you still remember the first time you told your family and friends about your vegan diet habits? How did they react to it? Probably, they were confused and ignorant of it or maybe even opposed to it. If this should have been the case, you should know that many vegans use to face these challenges in the beginning.
Let’s be honest: Becoming a vegan is not a trivial issue that you can handle on the fly. It’s a decision that could take quite a time before you make it. And even after taking this decision, you must be aware that there are still other challenges to come.
