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!
The autism I was able to prepare myself for. The fact that he had been raised vegan was a different story. I have been an on and off vegetarian since my teens, but due to the fact I didn’t want to cook different meals, I followed my husband’s culinary tastes. It was easier to make the same thing for both of us, and he is definitely not going vegetarian any time soon. When our son came to live with us during the Spring of 2007, we at first tried to get him to eat the same foods we were eating, with no success.
