The joyful vegan : how to stay vegan in a world that wants you to eat meat, dairy, and eggs

Patrick-Goudreau, Colleen2019
Finding plant-based recipes? Easy. Dealing with the social, cultural, and emotional pressures of being vegan? That's the hard part.Motivated by a desire to eat more healthfully or live more ethically, many people choose veganism as a logical and sensible response to their concerns about animals, the environment, and their health. Yet, despite their positive intentions, they're often met with resistance from friends, family members, and society at large. These external factors can make veganism socially difficult 'and emotionally exhausting' to sustain. This leads to an unfortunate reality: the majority of vegetarians and vegans revert back to consuming meat, dairy, or eggs' breaching their own values and sabotaging their own goals in the process.
