I’m gonna try to be vegan. I am probably gonna fail. Daily. But I will keep at it. WHY?

Do I really need animal products to survive?

The way we organise our animal food supplies is not gonna help the planet,

And also I’ve just gone off the idea of meat. Partly it is the thought of the cruelty in animal food production. And partly its just not necassary

Then there is the hormones, anti-biotics, and other contaminants.

I have concluded that he environment and all of us in it will suffer if we don’t reduce our meat consumption.

The big problem though is dairy. I don’t like dairy. I LOVE it! Cheese, milk, butter… However I don’t NEED it. Maybe i’ll have it as a special treat, on my birthday.

I haven’t done any research really but i just discovered Oreos are vegan. That means my breakfast is sorted. i can swop my choc chip cookie or brioche for an Oreo. I have had soya milk in coffee for years, and i don’t add milk to tea. 

So that gets me through the first part of the day. I will have to do with the amount of sugar in my diet further down the line.
