I was born a vegetarian, but my vegetarian friends are a lot more open-minded than I am.
They are open-hearted about what food means to them and why.
They do not care if I have a vegetarian diet.
They want me to eat meat and dairy products.
They have seen how my meat consumption has negatively impacted their health.
My family has also not been vegetarian.
Our family diet is mostly vegetable based.
We have a lot of vegetables, fruits and spices.
My sister has a vegetable allergy.
I had to grow up without a vegetarian family and without my parents being vegan.
But now I see the positive aspects of vegetarianism.
The first thing my sister said to me when she introduced me to her vegan diet was that she could not live without meat.
And it’s not just her.
My sisters friends and family are also vegan.
It is a new experience for me.
When I was a child, my mother’s family were all vegetarian.
I have been vegan since I was 12 years old.
I never thought about eating meat, but when I was growing up my mother never had meat, so I had no idea.
I did not think about it too much.
I was raised by my grandparents, and I think that was the only thing that influenced my diet.
But when I went to college I was vegan for the first time, and when I moved to the States I decided to become vegetarian.
At first, I was sceptical, because my parents were both vegetarian.
But once I became vegetarian, my vegan friends became even more supportive.
They were really happy that I had found a new life.
They had never met a vegetarian before, so it was not a big shock.
I am glad I became vegan.
When we were going to school, my vegetarian friend would ask me what was my favourite food.
My friend who was vegetarian was very particular.
She would ask what the food in the cafeteria was called, and she would make sure to have a food reference sheet with her.
She was very knowledgeable and would tell me about vegetarian recipes and what to look out for.
I became a vegetarian for the same reason that many people do.
I wanted to be more knowledgeable about vegetarianism, so the vegan friends of mine would take the time to do a lot to ensure that my vegetarianism would become a success.
I feel very proud of my vegan lifestyle.
I hope that others can learn from my experience.
They can be more aware of the differences in their family and community.
I would also like to share my experience with other vegetarian friends and vegan friends who do not live in the US.
I know that many of my friends in India are vegetarian, and many of them are vegetarian in their own families.
I do not want to discourage my friends from being vegan, and also not discourage my vegetarian family from being vegetarian.
There are so many reasons for the vegan lifestyle that I do think it is important to speak up for the many reasons that it is so important for us.
I want to encourage all vegans to start vegan and to join the growing number of vegans in the United States.
I will continue to promote vegetarianism through my blog.
