Check out these resources about a vegan diet and lifestyle. These were influential in helping me make the connection between the animal industry and my choices about what I put on my plate as well as finding amazing recipes to try.
PETA – This is the resource that I have used most frequently over the past year. It’s the easiest and most reliable resource to find out if products are vegan or if a restaurant has vegan options to plan your meals prior to going.
Mercy for Animals – This resource dives deep into the world of animal agriculture including investigations, being animal advocates and providing a load of information on their website.
Warning: These contain a lot of graphic video footage on the treatment of animals in the commercial animal industry.
