Thanks for writing this. Veganism is more of a journey than a destination, so please don’t beat yourself up about how long it took you to change! Most people are in denial about their food needs. We can be the quiet, confident educators; with enough protein and micronutrients to live longer than average. In the US, as an example, the meat and dairy industries are running scared their businesses will drop, as more and more people realize the harm we’ve done to the planet, its water system and its fauna.
