Yeah I live bout 20mins away from Liverpool. I just think my brother was led by all his mates, that it wasn't 'cool' to be vegetarian!
Anyway I was up late last night, looking up Vegananism and thought about it all day 2day, I even re-visted the peta website to see if it had anything on there about dairy farms, because believe it or not even though I was brought up as I vegetarian I didn't know much about the 'behind the scenes' in dairy farms, and it wasn't pleasant when I found out.
I was brought up on soya milk though so I have never drank milk, as I was allergic to dairy when I was younger, so I have always had soya milk, I think just on my treat day (Sunday) I have a chocolate bar and other things but I'm pretty sure that I can cut that out, because I was speaking to my sister today and was explaining that I am considering becoming Vegan she said-'well you don't eat much dairy anyway', so therefore I don't think it would be hard for me, and if I did become Vegan and I went ot eat milk chocolate or sommat I think I would automatically have visions of the poor cows in the dairy farm.
Like I said though I am practiaclly Vegan now, I won't call myself vegan just yet because I do have dairy on occasion, but through the week I eat like a Vegan, have any of you heard of John Mcdougall? Well that is the type of diet we have, it's such a healthy way to live, you should go check his website out...www.drmcdougall.com
Hope u r all well by the way! X
