Watching a documentary in first grade about how dolphins were trapped in the same nets as tuna fish - taught me that meat was not a plant in which my innocent mind always thought. This was the start to my displeasure in consuming meat. I soon after started a "nature club" and attempted to save a panda in fourth grade. In my teens I transitioned into a vegetarian lifestyle in rebellion of my Father trying to pass off the deer meat he acquired into every dish we ate. It stuck for many years until I became a young adult and was on the road so much for work that it became inconvienent to not eat meat- and I forgot my ways. Then early in 2011 I was watching a documentary called "One day on Earth" and unknowing was exposed to a cow being slaughtered. One moment I was thinking, aww what a pretty pure white cow and then I was horrified at what I saw them do that cow. Until this day that one moment on Earth is burned into my memory and I again found my way to being a vegetarian. I never questioned animal bi-products and could not fathom that harm would be done from milk & eggs and never took the time to question it - Until I sat down to watch Vegucated. How could I have never questioned this!? I almost immidiatly decided to start my journey to being more vegan. I baked vegan goodies (chex mix & gingersnap cookies) for the past holiday. I have stocked my cupboards of egg replacers, spices & herbs. My fridge is overflowing of veggies and fruits. The cheese products I leave for my husband, who has no intentions of joinging me on this journey - but stands by me anyways. I feel postive about the changes in my diet and lifestyle that are occuring - one that I believe I always was suppose to be on but lost my way a few times in life.
