Here are some great resources to help you on your journey to becoming a vegan and living a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle. One reason many new vegans fail is because they don’t know what to eat, they don’t eat enough and give in to meat and dairy cravings as a result, or they don’t know what to consume to ensure they are getting the proper nutrition.

Also, many people on the Standard American Diet have no idea where the food they consume comes from, or how it hurts their bodies, the environment and most importantly the animals.

By checking out these sites and videos, you will have all the information on hand to be a happy, healthy herbivore and reduce suffering!

Meet Your Meat

This video created by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) changed the course of my life forever. Until I watched it in 2005, I had no idea of the brutalities of factory farming. It will break your heart and open your eyes.

Earthlings

A powerful documentary that exposes the horror of factory farming.

Books:

Eating Animals

Written by Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals takes a searing look into the animal agriculture industry while investigating the cruelty involved and what industry insiders would like to keep hidden. The author also details his struggles to give up meat and dairy, being conflicted about having animals on his plate while also loving those animals raised as “pets.” It’s also the subject of a new documentary, voiced by Natalie Portman, who credits the book as helping her make the switch from vegetarian to vegan.
