If you had told me five years ago that I would give up all animal products when I was 16, I probably would have said, "Hell no, I'm not giving up pizza and ice cream."
I first went vegan towards the end of my junior year of high school. I mainly did it to help overcome an eating disorder and to improve my health. Since then, my reasons for staying vegan have evolved into something much greater than myself. I have done a lot of reading and documentary-watching, so here are my favorite resources for people looking to explore veganism.
