I have an immense love for animals and the earth. This is my number one reason. Yes friends.... I am a "Tree Hugger" And proud of it. I love animals, every single one of them and think they all deserve to have a chance at life. Not the life that many of them sadly have, but a happy, healthy, humane life. I have done a lot of research on veganism for quite some time now as my kids are being raised vegan and I like to research as much as I can to find all the good, healthy recipes/foods, vitamins, etc. That I can for them. There is nothing but benefits for your health, animals and the earth with this diet.
