“Veganism is not a sacrifice, it is a joy” – Gary L. Francione
My name is Meg. I’m a provisional psychologist, book worm, Jivamukti Yoga teacher and aspiring green thumb, but the choices I make about how I live my life means I fit within another category; the ever growing group of people practicing ethical veganism. This blog contains my thoughts on health, environmental and ethical issues, helpful resources, food reviews and delicious vegan recipes.
The concept behind the name The Thoughtful Vegan originates from veganism, for me at least, encompassing deep thought and adherence to personal principles and values. And I suppose my interest in psychology too. I believe the choice to live this way is the logical end for people who value their health, the environment and the rights of animals. My thoughts about each of these things radically changed the more I learnt about ethical veganism and my life has been enriched by living by this way.
I hope you enjoy my posts, please engage with me on Instagram (@thethoughtfulvegan) and let me know about your journey. Hearing from you makes this personal blog all the more joyful.
Peace, love and carrots,
