This is more of call for opinion for vegans out there than it is a post. I'm interested in the connections between social justice/feminism and veganism.
In my research, I recently began reading this great blog about veganism and have been experimenting with radical cooking - daring meatless and dairy-free dishes. My husband is literally and figuratively eating it up. As long as there are huge amounts of quantity and tastes good, he's not going to complain.
But it's just the two of us right now and experimenting with veganism is, I've found, expensive. Eating well, in general, is costly with a diet full of whole grain, beans, and raw, fresh, and sometimes organic produce. I wonder, as I contemplate someday having a family, is veganism realistic with little ones who may be picky eaters? How economically affordable is natural and organic for a growing family? What are the ways to eat, cook, live well on reasonable budget?
Is going vegan worth it? What's your advice about going vegan? What pushed you to veganism? What's your story?
