“Veganism is not a sacrifice. It is a joy.” – Gary L. Francione
My name is Meg. I’m a 24 year old psychology graduate. I’m also someones girlfriend, daughter, sister and helping hand through addiction 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 Thoughtful Vegan originates from veganism, for me at least, encompassing deep thought and adherence to personal principles and values. 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.
