Sometimes, being vegan or eating a plant based diet can make you feel a little isolated,
I think this is especially true if you’re new to it, or you’re just making the transition. I’m lucky that I have a load of understanding people around me who share similar views and provide support, but even so, it can still feel lonely from time to time.
Veganism is not the most socially acceptable stance to take, in a world where there’s a burger joint around every corner, and bacon is hailed as some sort of food from the gods.
It’s easy to feel like an outsider. But you’re not alone, and this post is partly here to remind you that.
I’ve compiled a list of 50 vegan quotes from some of the pioneers in the plant based movement. There are athletes, teachers, doctors, musicians, and even the odd spiritual leader too. People from all walks of life, with one thing in common – the food they put on their plate.
Sure, some of these people probably aren’t/weren’t fully vegan, but they’ve all done their bit for the movement, in their own unique way. And for that, I think they deserve to be recognised.
So if you’re looking for some inspiration to help you through making changes, or you just want to feel like you’re not alone, go check out the quotes.
