I like the taste and I couldn't give it up.
If we choose to eat animals products because of taste, we're saying our taste buds are more important than the whole of the animals lives. There are many amazing tastes in the world that don't have to come from dead animals.
I used to say I could never give up animal products, because I too was addicted to the taste. But I realised that consuming animal products was causing harm, so giving up became easy. It was also a really exciting and fun journey trying out new foods and recipes.
And I feel glad I'm not directly paying and contributing to a system of death, torture, artificial insemination, gas chambers, separating families and more.
A really helpful site for people looking into a Vegan lifestyle is Veganuary.
