Default Re: Share your Vegetarian or Vegan Testimony Here!

Yeah, that. The more I read, the less I want to eat animals and animal products. And it's not just the treatment of the animals but also the affect that modern factory farming practices have on the environment and on our own health. We first decided to only eat meat, milk and eggs from local farms, and now are moving toward eliminating them completely. This may be a long and gradual process, but we are moving in that direction at least.

I have had some knowledge and conviction about such things for several years, but I never thought I would be able to get dh on board. Recently, my brother went vegan and started sharing info with us. I started eating vegetarian for breakfast and lunch and then whatever dh wanted for dinner. Dh started doing some reading on his own (namely, he read Dominion by Matthew Scully) and to my utter surprise and delight started talking about making some huge changes to our diet. We started on our journey in October of this year, and we have a long way to go, but I am just happy to be on our way.

Just a funny side note; when I was starting to drop meat from my diet, we were at the store, and dh said "if you ever decide to go totally vegan, I just won't know what to do." Now he is the one initiating a lot of the changes toward a vegan diet! It's amazing how God can change people's hearts and minds! I mean, having the knowledge is one thing, but it's really a matter of the heart.
