i kinda have a happy little story. My dad asked me if I had any books I could loan him on a recent TDY trip, so I lent him Diet For a New America (the best book ever, but then again I still haven't read The Food Revolution), and he's decided to go ovo-lacto!! I've never been so excited!
My mom also decided one day while she and I were running together that she would stop eating so much meat because she saw how being vegan is affecting my energy levels and overall health!!!
I'm -totally- on cloud nine!!!!
any other success stories? i know i saw a thread about a week ago about something.. but i really just wanted to share this VERY heavily punctuated story!
That is so AWESOME to hear. I have not had any success in converting anyone. I've probably made a few people more aware of a vegan diet, and a few that cut down or cut a few things out of their diet, but nothing like you accomplished. That is so great to hear! Good for you....the daughter teaching the parents....that is so great! :)
Is that your Mom with you in your new pic? She looks like she could be your sister! Did she have you when she was10?! :D (BTW....I meant that as a compliment).
How was NYC?....I will always miss my hometown, I just can never live there again because of all my animals (my furry family)....though it will still always be my "true" home no matter where I live. Once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker, for better or worse......
