So you’re thinking about transitioning to the vegan lifestyle.  You know animal cruelty is wrong.  You don’t like anything about the slaughter process, but how are you ever going to give up cheese?

You can do this.   Vegan meat and dairy alternatives are flooding grocery stores and restaurants.  Now has never been a better time to go vegan.

Like you, I thought the same things.  What am I going to cook?  How am I going to live without cheese?

I was known for my “famous” animal meat and dairy dishes.  How in the Hell was I supposed to live on plants?

Where was I going to get my protein?  Yes, I really went there at the beginning!

It’s shameful what I had believed about animal agriculture most of my life (by burying my head in the sand), but I feel enlightened at my new outlook on life; my vegan life.

I have been a vegan for four years now.  It’s one of the best decisions I have ever made and I wish I would have done it sooner.  SPOILER ALERT—said every vegan after making the leap to this compassionate lifestyle.
