Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself-- My name is Angela, I'm 30 yrs old and live in Arkansas. My husband and I have been vegan for almost a year now. It was the best decision we ever made! I just finished Alicia's book over the weekend and I am so inspired! We're going to try our best to be superheroes (at least a few days a week to start with!). I look forward to getting to know you guys better.
Hey, and welcome! I'm new as well =) Was your husband reluctant or willing to start the vegan lifestyle? My fiance is currently in Iraq and I'm going to try to persuade him to the lifestyle but he's a huge meat & potatoes kinda guy. Any helpful suggestions??
Welcome Angela! Lucky you that your husband is on board! I sympathise Sarah, my husband wants nothing to do with my lifestyle. Only thing that remotely seemed to affect him was when I slipped a few references in about conditions in slaughterhouses. I know, not really fair of me, but I hate the attitue so many people have. "Don't want to know, cause then I might have to change". Anyway, welcome Angela and good luck Sarah!
My husband was not on board to begin with. But then he saw me losing weight, having tons of energy and just feeling really great and he decided to give it a try. He started asking me questions about being vegan, factory farms etc. So I started giving him info (and book recommendations!). About a month later he was completely on board and we haven't looked back since.
I hope so too Sarah! It also helped that my husband is a big animal lover- both of our dogs and both of our cats are rescues, so I think he was more open to being a vegan from an animal right's perspective.
