Default Re: Share your Vegetarian or Vegan Testimony Here!

Hi! My name is Shannon and I have been a vegetarian since I was about 11 years old. My dad was a hunter and I thought it was so awful when he would hang up the animals in the garage. I'm really not sure what the purpose of that was, but I guess it was part of the process of getting them ready to eat. Anyway, I felt so sorry for the animals and decided to stop eating meat altogether. My mom was very supportive and prepared vegetarian options for me, for which I am very thankful!

Later, when I got older my husband and I both stopped eating animal products after reading the China Study book. My husband and I heard the author speak at a CHIP (coronary health improvement project) program and we learned so much! We don't follow it perfectly, but we are pretty consistent and love eating this way!
