I never thought about what I was eating or where it came from.
Now rather than eating to live we were living to eat. Eventially I got a second job and things calmed down and I no longer used the church food bank.
Now I find myself walking past the meat and dairy isle knowing I could buy it, but what would be the fun in that. I think in the end I did stumble upon some purpose and meaning to my life where I wouldnt have normally found it.
I can say now that it was a happy accident. Already a member?
Log in to vote. Veganara January 17, , pm Voted. A great, inspiring blog. People go vegan for all sorts of reasons, so there is no shame in doing it for the financial ones! That is how I first became vegetarian actually: I was a poor student, and it was cheaper not to eat meat. But I didn't really want to eat dead animals anyway, and now I am vegan. Veganism is not only cheaper, it is better for your health, is not cruel to animals, is better for the environment, and far more people can be fed on a purely plant-based diet! Knowing all that, I don't suppose you will want to go back.
It's a reason to go vegan like many others. I am glad you stayed vegan because quite a lot of people would've simply gone back to their regular diets.
Anyhow, if you did try a steak now, you may not even like it - your taste buds may have changed enough to not appreciate the flavour of meat anymore. When I became vegetarian, I was already thinking about doing it, but didn't have the willpower to actually go for it until I became dirt poor. I stopped eating meat most of the time and eventually got used to the meatless meals, and went vegetarian even though I started getting a regular paycheck. So really, I'm not that much different from you.
I just had other reasons for becoming vegetarian, which was to help the social justice aspect of it. I voted.
