Hey WWE Universe!
For the last 3 and a half years, I have been working on a long journey to becoming a Vegan. My first and main reason behind this lifestyle change is the moral and ethical rights of animals. I am speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves. I am a strong proponent for the humane treatment of animals and am making my stand known by not ingesting any animal products whatsoever. That's right! No meat, no dairy, no eggs...the list goes on. In short, no animal products or animal by-products.
This decision started with giving up red meat and pork 3 and a half years ago and has finally evolved into a complete vegan diet 6 months ago. After much research about how animals were treated for purposes of food, clothing, and other products, I had trouble pushing my feelings about animal treatment aside. I love animals and want others to at least be aware of their treatment.
The first video I ever saw was a PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) video about inhumane animal treatment on farms and I cried for hours after watching. Since then, I have been a proud member of PETA and slowly began to change my diet.
I am not judgmental about those who are not vegetarians or vegans but urge you to buy products from company's that vow to treat their animals ethically. Company's, such as Whole Foods, strive to purchase from only farmers that adhere to these standards.
Thank you for listening and remember that if this is something you are interested in, to please research and get your doctor involved as this diet change may not be for everyone!!
