Vegan support groups near you
Ever feel like you’re completely on your own in terms of your vegan lifestyle? Even though vegans and vegetarians make up a small percentage of the population, other people who feel just like you are out there. And the number is growing every day as more people begin to understand the deleterious effects that eating animal products has on their own health as well as that of the planet and farm animals.
One of the best ways to feel a part of something bigger than yourself is to look for vegan support groups in your area. If your search turns up empty, try going to the meetup app and starting your own group. It’s easy, and you might make a few good friends along the way.
Other ways to go about meeting other vegans include joining an environmental group or visiting a farm animal sanctuary. It’s nice to interact with people who share your interests and can help with things like recipe tips and ideas for meals that meet your dietary requirements.
For more than just dinner meetups
Going to dinner meetups with other vegans can help you make connections as well as learn about restaurants in your area that provide good vegetarian menu options. Finding vegan restaurants is important, and so is the camaraderie of like-minded people. Sometimes it’s nice not to feel like you have to defend yourself or educate others on what being vegan is all about.
However, as mentioned above, vegan restaurants are just one place to meet people. You can also reach out by joining a support group or forming one yourself, checking into local animal rights organizations, and finding online groups that provide helpful information and camaraderie.
Even more vegan support
In addition to local vegans, there are numerous online resources that will help you start and stick to the vegan lifestyle. The Vegan Life Nutrition website contains helpful information, such as a page dedicated to breaking down the going vegan survival kit.
VLN was established to provide healthy, 100% organic, free of additives, vegan supplements that offer nutritional support for people who have chosen a meat-free life.
