Hi, I’m Amanda

My journey started at the age of 13.  I recall the precise moment when I made the connection that the meat which had been put on my plate each night was an innocent animal who didn’t want to die. I loved animals, we were a family who loved animals. My father was the man who rescued baby birds who had fallen from their nest, saved bees from drowning in our pool, and gently released spiders outside that we had found in the house. We were brought up to love animals, but here we were eating them.  It didn’t make sense. From that moment on I stopped eating meat and became vegetarian.

 

27 years later I was prompted to question my food choices further, after a passing comment from a friend about the dairy industry. What I discovered was that I had made the same mistake I made as a 13-year-old girl.  I had turned a blind eye, or rather, I had simply been unaware that the dairy industry was causing any harm.  Turns out, I’d had the wool pulled over my eyes yet again.

 

I thought cows lived happy lives grazing the fields and coming in when they needed to be milked, and that chickens naturally laid eggs; where was the harm, I thought? I always chose free-range eggs, so I was doing the right thing…. wasn’t I? I never saw the need for a vegan lifestyle - in fact, I never understood it, until I opened my eyes to what is a tremendous amount of animal exploitation and suffering.  Learning I’d been complicit was soul-destroying. I instantly turned vegan and have never looked back.

 

To stay disconnected and to turn a blind eye on these industries because we love the taste of cheese or milk in our coffee is an injustice to those without a voice, to the planet, and to our health.

 

Choosing a vegan lifestyle was the best decision I have ever made. My only regret was my naivete, and not choosing to go plant-based sooner.  

 

I have found that choosing kindness has led me to living an even more happy, healthy, and abundant life than I ever did before.  I feel good inside knowing that my choices are not at the detriment of others.
