Podcast: Do You Need to Give Up Your Culture to Go Vegan?

I thoroughly enjoyed having this meaningful conversation with Alisha @lish_life for the @meatbusterspodcast Ep. 7 a few weeks ago. We discussed our vegan journeys, our thoughts on how it is possible to mesh our lifestyle choices with our traditions and culture, and some tips if you’re the only vegan in the family. (Yes, it may be tough for someone coming from a heavy meat-based diet, yet many such people have gone vegan so don’t lose hope! 😊)

Our current circumstances especially warrant some contemplation on how we eat and live and our impact on others around us. Most of us know that by changing what we eat, the way we grow/source our food and by having a plant-focused lifestyle, we can have a significant impact on our planet and our health (and on the animals saved/not bred into existence). While changes in government policies may be a long-drawn-out battle, we can change what WE contribute to today – right now. ⏰

Going vegan is not about abandoning our culture, history or traditions. It’s about embracing change (or in some cases, going back to our roots)… evolving with the times as more information is made available and making ethical decisions. ✅ If we refuse to learn and change, our fellow beings, our planet and we ourselves suffer.

I wanted to share this post earlier but just wasn't in the mood to write anything the past week. 😔 Our little ginger kitten took off after a vet visit after spending 20 days with us. He brought us so much joy and seemed to be having a great time here so it was heartbreaking to have him gone one morning. 😢 Animals have so much to teach us. We're just so grateful for the memories and the personal lessons! . . . 📸 1: @veganbombayboy 📸 2: @meatbusterspodcast
