Early in 2012 I started reaching out to vegan friends on twitter to ask them to share their testimonials. My hope was that by getting vegans to share their stories we could educate and inspire others and give people first hand accounts to replace perceptions or stereotypes. I’m incredibly grateful to those that have participated. Their stories speak for themselves! If you enjoy the series please let us know!
While I wish I had been vegan my entire life, I actually stumbled into veganism without ever intending to. My journey began in late 2009 when, after being sick and tired of always being sick and tired, I decided to do some research into what could help me. Doctors found nothing wrong with my blood so I decided to try and experiment to see if I could get myself to feel better by making some changes to my diet. I was an omnivore my entire life and considered myself “healthy” because I had a salad from time to time, did not indulge in too many fried foods, and got on an elliptical a few times a week for 15 minutes at a time.
