The Gay Vegans

Ditch dairy

Cow’s milk was easy to stop drinking.

Even cheese wasn’t difficult.

Ice cream, a little tougher.

Ditching dairy is an important step in becoming vegan, in fact it’s one of the differences between being vegetarian and being vegan. It was easier for me because I went vegan for the animals. Meaning, I went vegan so what I consumed would have as little awful affect on animals as possible.

That what I consumed would not support intense forms of animal cruelty.

Producing dairy products is bad for animals. I won’t go into detail as there has been plenty written and documented about this that a simple Google search will bring to your attention.

If you’re new to being vegan, I assure you that ditching dairy will not be that difficult. These days there are a myriad of plant-based milks, cheeses, and ice creams. There is absolutely something for everyone.

The bonus is that there is no need to support animal cruelty.

More to come on my favorite plant-based products.

Until then, ditch dairy and keep enjoying your journey that does not include cruelty to animals.
