Hello, I'm Katie. Here's the condensed version - Vegan. Environmentalist. Health Enthusiast. Animal Activist. Feminist. LGBTQ Activist. Minimalist. Academic. Writer.
Since beginning my journey toward veganism in 2012 my entire outlook on life has changed for the better. What started as a different way of eating quickly transformed into how I see the world. I've become a more conscious consumer of everything around me, including the "facts" we've been told our whole lives. I now see that living a simpler, more natural, healthy, compassionate lifestyle is most in line with my values and I want to live that truth.
Life is too short to be unhappy, so we have to decide what truly makes us happy and set ourselves on a path toward living that happiness. I hope hearing our story inspires you to pursue your own happiness.
So I'm Mike... and I loooovvve to eat. I don't understand my appetite but I listen to it. I also hate being wrong which is why when I was introduced to a vegetarian lifestyle I was very against it.
I, like so many others, grew up learning the so called "benefits" of consuming animals and their byproducts while never being exposed to the negative effects it has on our life and all around health.
I never thought I would feel so passionate about something, especially a vegan lifestyle. It's so much more than just food or weight loss and we are excited to share our experience. We're here to help you through your journey so we can all continue to learn from each other.
