I became a vegan because I don’t want to harm other living creatures on this earth. Not only meat, but almost every animal product (think about milk and cheese for example) requires violence, exploitation and cruelty. For the sake of our tastebuds, innocent beings have to die and endure terrible things every single day, when there are so many other delicious food sources for us to eat. People often think that the only thing I eat is lettuce, but nothing could be further from the truth. I can enjoy fries, cake, pasta, burgers, sushi, pizza.. the list goes on. I can literally eat everything I want and I never feel restricted. I did at first though, because I simply didn’t realise I did not have to give up anything by going vegan. I was used to the cheese on my pizza and to the tuna/salmon in my salads, but then I discovered that there are delicious vegan alternatives for almost all animal products. If we can live happily without causing dead and cruelty, why wouldn’t we?
