I stumbled upon this video titled “Best Speech You Will Ever Hear” last night and watched it all the way through out of curiosity. I have said before that I am not one to be a preachy activist type of vegan, but I do like to remember my reasons for being vegan in the first place; love and compassion. Bottom line, that is my reason for being vegan, even though I sometimes forget that all of this cruelty is going on day in and out when I get lost in the pure enjoyment of the food we eat and the way that we live. I try not to think about it too much, but instead, I continue to do what I can in my everyday life to make a difference and choose to not take part in the cruelty.
I just had a feeling that I should share this side of veganism today. This video is both educational and inspirational, providing tons of information for aspiring vegetarians and vegans and is great for long time ones too. I really recommend watching it all the way through, even though it is quite long! I quite enjoyed it.
Gary Yourofsky also has a website worth checking out http://adaptt.org/ with plenty more information.
Another favorite of mine is this talk by Dr.Will Tuttle. His book The World Peace Diet, was the first one I got on veganism and it changed my life. Will Tuttle is so full of information about all aspects of veganism and is truly inspirational. His book really has it all! Will Tuttle also wrote the Foreword to my cookbook which is very exciting to me!
This video is so worth watching.
And one more! A great video to question the story of our culture and open our eyes to the deception of using animals for food.
Wishing you all a great weekend!!
