I am a 17 year old boy from Newcastle, England who went vegan after watching a Gary Yourofsky speech in October 2014. I was shocked to discover that what we, as a society, thought of as normal and even healthy way of living, was in fact a cruel, illogical, damaging way of existence that could not go on for much longer. As soon as I had been educated, I went from a protein-rich, meat-eating lifestyle, to fully vegan (no honey!) within a matter of days. From what I have learned through my experience, I believe that every human can, and most certainly should, switch to a fully vegan lifestyle.
I have set up my website Asparagusaurus to provide a database of my recipes, to be accessed by vegans and meat-eaters alike, in the hope that in some small way, it will help the cause.
