10 Mouthwatering Reasons to Never Go Vegan

reasons not to go veganThinking of going vegan in 2014? Maybe you should look away from these photos. Or maybe you should take a closer look, just to say goodbye to some of the yummiest foods ever invented. You know, just to make sure you're making the right decision. Do you realize what you're giving up? It just makes me sad. I mean, don't get me wrong. I admire your resolve, really, I do. It's just that ... I cannot possibly conceive of going vegan as long as I know these foods are out there.

We can talk about why America is the most indulgent, wasteful, decadent country in the world another day. Today we're talking about why it's a mistake to go vegan. Did I say talking? I meant looking at pictures.

Do you have something against people who choose not to kill animals just to consume their flesh?

You know what's funny is that majority of people who have given up these things once said the same thing. I actually had a goal to try every animal meat there was (except monkey, I love monkeys too much) and I've been veg. for 4 years. It's one of those "never say never" sort of deals.

My husband makes amazing Guinness bacon cheese burgers which are so juicy, we do elk burgers, deer meat stuffing, lamb, salmon, many dishes with chicken. No way in hell would i ever subject my kids to a life without meat or other products from animals

"Today we're talking about why it's a mistake to go vegan." News flash, it is not a "mistake". It's a conscious choice to CARE about living beings equally.

Sorry you're selfish and choose to ignore the life of SUFFERING you give to these animals you eat. They spend their "lives" in cramped foul conditions until they're slaughtered. 

So maybe the higher power will forgive you for your "mistake" of torturing his creatures?

vegans can be so extreme with their talk of torturing animals...yes, there are many inhumane slaughter houses that i would not consume meat from...on the other hand, there are organic farms where the animals are raised and slaughtered in the best way...animals were put on this earth for humans to get many uses from...what would our ancestors have done w/out animal hide, the meat, bones, etc? just because folks are meat eaters, doesn't make us fall under the "cruelty to animals" category...hogwash!

CaliBeauty, would you rather be sitting in jail and get out completely free or get a bigger jail cell? Because those "organic free range" farms are basically bigger jail cells. They aren't free, they aren't happy. They will still be killed, it's not much more "humane". And there were PLENTY of older tribes that didn't eat meat. Do you realize how much protein is in plants? You don't have to eat meat to survive, you're brainwashed into thinking that "hogwash"  

And FTR, when someone calls something you're VERY passionate about in your life a "mistake" you'd get defensive to. One of my good friends owns a chicken refuge and it's absolutely sickening how awful humans treat pets. Like trash, and throw them away and threaten to kill it if she doesn't take it.

People seem to think that animals are here for us to use simply because they are less intelligent then humans. But as a more intelligent species, shouldn't we be doing the opposite and NOT eating animals, especially when there are so many other options for us to eat. Organic or not, you hunted it or not, it doesn't matter. There is no nice way to kill an animal and eat it.

OK now people seriously...why does everyone have to be so dang obnoxious about their specific way of living.  I am not a vegan, have no intention of becoming vegan (i love meat and cheese way too much lol) BUT i have vegan friends and family and i would NEVER dream of telling them going vegan is a mistake.  on the flip side, they would NEVER lecture me about how animals are treated and whatnot.  being a vegan, vegetarian, or a carnivore...its all a personal choice.  i feel like i have this conversation with someone once a week, whether it be vegan vs. non vegan, breastfed vs. bottle fed, vaccinations vs no vaccinations.  and everytime i have the conversation everyone is being all lecture-y and obnoxious about what THEY think is right.  what is right for one family may not be right for another so BACK OFF and be accepting and supportive of other people, even if you don't do things the same way.  as mothers/women, we need to me more supportive of each other and not tear each other down and criticize.  i get so fed up with it.  Hi, my name is Erin, a mother who eats cheeseburgers and who bottle fed and vaccinated her child.  And we are all okay.

 Erin, IDK if you noticed but veganism was called a "mistake" in this article and then someone said vegans were extreme. TRUST ME I could be extreme. I could show you all kinds of videos and articles that would make you CRY and probably never eat meat again. (Like the calf I watched last week that CRIED as they took away its mother for slaughter)

I am simply stating FACTS and no way intended to demonize meat eaters.  But when you are ATTACKED for your views I am fairly certain you would come out swinging as well. My bad, I called meat eaters selfish. I apologize, they are uneducated on the subject, not selfish. 

So maybe next time when we have an article like this would could NOT end off by demonizing vegans or calling it a "mistake". Then no one would need to BACK OFF because no one would have been attacked from the beginning. I'm not coming out of nowhere with my statements and I probably wouldn't have said anything at all had my lifestyle choices not been called a "mistake" in the main article.
