• What would happen if humans would stop consuming meat? What would we do with all the animals? And if we stopped hunting, wouldn’t the animal populations grow to big?
• What do you consider to be the most effective way to promote veganism within your circle of influence?
That is far from being an established fact. But even if it were true, how we evolved is not relevant to the ethics of what we should eat now that we do not need to eat other animals in order to be healthy.
• I’m an avid vegetarian & would love to become vegan, but how can I do that on a limited budget that can’t afford ‘Whole Foods’ shopping?
You can start by replacing dairy and eggs with beans, which are actually less expensive. Tofu and mushrooms are also high in protein, and even some vegetables like broccoli and greens have a lot of protein. If you eat mostly whole grains, beans, a variety of vegetables, with small amounts of seaweed, seeds (like pumpkin) and nuts, you should be able to get all the nutrition you need. If you eat plenty of brown rice and mushrooms you’ll get all your B vitamins. The only supplement you’ll need is B12, which is inexpensive. Get the liquid or tablets that dissolve under the tongue since they are absorbed best.
