My journey into veganism began in 1987 through 1989. In 1987 I gave up read meat; in 1988 I gave up chicken; on January 1, 1989 I gave up seafood and dairy. That was when I was 25. So, I’ve been vegan most of my life.

I’ll get started after the holidays. The only problem is that there is always a holiday around the corner! Let us not forget about birthdays and special occasions.
