In this interview I talk to a woman named Natalie who lives a strict vegan lifestyle.
How does someone decide to become vegan? What is involved in a vegan lifestyle as opposed to a vegan diet? How did Natalie’s meat eating family react? What have been the social implications? What does it feel like to watch people consume animal products? What is her favorite vegan meal?
Natalie sent me an email after our interview in which she told me that “there are many animal welfare organizations out there. PETA, Compassion Over Killing, Mercy For Animals come to mind. These organizations support and promote animal welfare, but not animal rights. I disagree with their position and therefore do not wish to promote them.”
She was also kind enough to provide a list of Vegan Resources which I have posted below!
There was a lot of great information in this very fun interview, I hope you enjoy it.
