I am a long-time vegan raising a vegan child. Although we are very comfortable in our little vegan world, outside influences are all around us. My goal is to offer insights and suggestions to vegan individuals, parents and caregivers for weaving the way through the occasional challenges that arise while living in a culture that is still invested in eating higher on the food chain.
Whether you are a seasoned vegan with a solid support system of like-minded friends and family or a veg-curious parent who has relatives doubting your nutritional know-how, your efforts to provide a healthy, plant-based diet for your self and/or your family may require you to step out of your usual comfort zone. If you are raising children on a plant-based (vegan) diet, you will find this can present additional challenges around those who do not. The goal is to keep things as light and simple as possible, especially for the kids!
