RIGHT NOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'm looking to reinvent my own world for the next five years of my life.

WHAT DOES BEING VEGAN MEAN TO YOU?

It means everything. It's the most important principal I lead my life by. I've been a compassionate eater for 46 years. I first pleaded to not eat dead animals at just three years of age. I feel humans have evolved a long way since our cave days, we've built civilisations and cruelty need not be part of our lives. I can go to bed each night knowing that I have not been part of any torture to any living being from the food I chose to put on my plate—my conscience is clear. I also chose not to wear or use leather, feathers, fur, shells, corals or any household or cosmetic product made from or tested on animals. In simple terms you probably wouldn't want to eat toddler with mint sauce and potatoes, yet most people think it's OK to do that to another species ... lamb anyone? Or they think taking milk from another species is OK. I find that mind boggling and utterly revolting.
