Resources

Before adapting a vegan lifestyle, one must educate themselves. Of course this is important for your own knowledge because you need to understand why you are making this lifestyle change, but it’s also important so that you can educate the people who are going to question your lifestyle. Eating a plant based diet isn’t the norm, so a lot of people question the validity of the information you present to them. I like to be prepared to answer any questions I get with educated responses, so that I can effectively communicate my point. Here are my go-to resources:
