"It's changed my tastebuds and make me more adventurous..... I have no guilt about what I'm eating."
"Being vegan has opened my eyes to a more sustainable lifestyle..buying less...simple living...I appreciate nature more"
"We try and stay away from anything that can harm living beings...It started to make me think about what I was putting in my body"
