The Joyful Vegan: http://www.joyfulvegan.com
Millions of people are choosing veganism—or plant-based eating—as a logical and sensible response to their concerns about animals, the environment, and their health.
And yet, despite their positive intentions and even the personal benefits they experience, many revert back to consuming meat, dairy, and eggs—breaching their values and sabotaging their own goals in the process.
I’m trying to change that. For the animals. For our planet. For my fellow humans.
After decades of gathering stories, drawing on my own observations and experiences, studying the data that’s available, and hearing from thousands of people, I’ve come to learn that people stay vegan or stop being vegan depending on well they navigate the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of living vegan in a non-vegan world:
*constantly being asked to defend your food choices
*being outside of the status quo and not having a sense of belonging *feeling the pressure (often self-inflicted) to be perfect
*and experiencing guilt, remorse, and anger — common experiences that—if not addressed—can lead to giving up entirely.
In The Joyful Vegan, I provide the tools for navigating and overcoming the most common challenges, arming readers with solutions and strategies for cultivating healthy relationships (with vegans and non-vegans); communicating effectively; sharing enthusiasm without proselytizing; finding like-minded community; and experiencing peace of mind in a world that wants you to eat meat, dairy, and eggs.
