VeganMotivation.com is a not-for-profit, fact-based public service. The site is currently funded entirely by myself, which includes paying for specialist content writers, recipe creation and the research and design of our infographics. All proceeds earned by the site are put back into promoting a plant-based diet and cruelty-free lifestyle.
An Internet marketer by trade, I used my skills to penetrate the web and spread the truth about the effects of animal agriculture and the consumption of animal products on human health, animal welfare and the health of the planet.
If you stumbled upon this website through a Google search or a referral, it was most likely for one of three reasons:
- You’re a vegan and searching for information.
- You're trying to go vegan and need some motivation.
- You’re curious about being a vegan because you've been having those nagging thoughts about animal welfare, the effects of mass meat farming on the planet and the health risks of eating factory farmed meat.
I was once a 3, then a 2 and eventually a 1, so I know where you’re at and the challenges you’re facing.
As a 3, you’re faced with a life-changing decision. You’re thinking about changing the way you’ve been eating your whole life to date, and ignoring those scare-mongers who tell you vegans are all rake-thin people who get sick all the time. You’re a little worried about making the switch. You're looking for clarification on important nutritional issues and reliable advice to help you get started.
As a 2, you’re often caught between a rock and a hard place. You really want to stay vegan for the sake of the animals and the planet, but miss certain foods and have trouble maintaining when you go out to eat and travel. You sometimes worry that you’re not getting all the right nutrition too, and at times you struggle with motivation because the majority of your friends and family eat meat and don’t encourage your lifestyle.
As a 1, you know that it isn’t that much different from being a 2. You still face the critics, still get the ignorant comments and remain on a quest to make sure your diet is fully balanced and complete. But you know how awesome you feel when you stop being a part of the cruelty, when you feast on Mother Nature’s vegan harvest and feel the goodness flowing through your body and mind.
While many people turn to veganism for health concerns over the levels of antibiotics and other health risks associated with eating factory farmed meat, let’s face it, if you wanted to avoid these issues you could just eat organically farmed meats.
In reality, there's two other equally important reasons. Most people, including myself, go vegan because they no longer want to be complicit in the enslavement, torture and murder of billions of sentient beings that, like us, feel parallel levels of pain and stress when abused. And then there's a deep concern for the planet too. The meat industry is the largest pollutant on the planet bar none. Yes, that includes all transport and all oil extraction
