I am not trying to convince anyone to adopt a vegan lifestyle — I myself am not a vegan. I just want to shed some light (albeit, very minimal and incomplete light) on why a million people in America choose to live the way they do, in spite of the many inconveniences such a lifestyle engenders.
So you've decided to go vegan—congrats! Maybe it's because you can't stand the thought of animals suffering or being raised in sketchy conditions. Or maybe you just want to be part of a healthier lifestyle. But a word of warning: Just because a food is vegan doesn't mean it's good for you. Case in point: Oreos.
