For this week’s DVD Giveaway we asked a rather in-depth question and got some really inspiring and detailed answers. Thank you to everyone who told us your stories! There are many reasons to go veg and in our experience, the people who are the most successful, healthy and happy vegans tend to be the ones who do it for ethical and health reasons.
Mary Kate is our winner this week; she had this to say about her transition to a veg lifestyle:
I didn’t have a specific a-ha moment going veg but it was more of a cascade of “shock factors” that inspired me to go veg. I would first see the health benefits, followed by delicious recipes and seeing more of the terrors of factory farming all led up to my transition.
The most educational and helpful tools for me were various blogs throughout the internet. Knowing that other people were going through what I was going through and thought what I was thinking about going veg was the most helpful. I also think cookbooks are very important for showing how much variety there is in a plant based diet.
We agree, good cookbooks are key! Mary Kate will receive her own copy of the Vegucated DVD to share with her friends, family and community. Congratulations!
