When Mike got home this time he hit me with a new life change. He had decided to become vegan while he was gone. He said he had been thinking about it for a while and had made up his mind while at work. At first i was really upset. Not sure why, i think it just bothered me that he came home different than he left and hadn't really told me about it until he had made up his mind. Now that I am used to the idea and have been having fun finding new ways to cook and eat it is better. I am trying to be supportive so I don't buy or cook things at home that aren't vegan. When I go out or eat at other people's houses I don't eat meat anymore but no dairy and eggs is harder. Mike and I are reading the book Eating Animals which is the book that made him decide to go vegan. We are about half way through and i definitely see the benefits of being vegetarian but not really sure about being vegan.
Mikes reasoning is the inhumane treatment of animals in the dairy industry. It's really hard for me to think about giving up some of my favorite foods. I guess i will have to update again when we are finished reading the book.
Mike would like our children, when we have them, to be vegan as well. I wonder how that is for kids also what kind of things you have to be careful of with kids? Also when i get pregnant if there is anything i have to do special if i become vegan?
