Adopting a Vegan Life Style

Dr. Will Tuttle, author of  The World Peace Diet, in his article entitled ""What Then Should We Eat?" had this to say about veganism: 

"VEGANISM – STRIVING TO minimise our violence towards animals – is indeed an idea whose time has come. Veganism reflects our true nature. Veganism is simply seeing all living beings as sentient beings to be respected rather than seeing them as commodities to be used and consumed. The motivation underlying veganism is compassion.  As each of us awakens to the power of this idea, we will reduce animal cruelty and suffering as well as our abuse of the Earth. Our personal, social and spiritual health are all connected."

The challenge for those of us who might be new to the vegan life style is in changing the way we cook, and shop for food.  Robin Robertson's book Vegan On The Cheap offers a wealth of information on saving money, when preparing foods that are healthy, fresh and delicious.
