From out of left field

Anyone else discovered a new passion or lifestyle from a completely unplanned event?
Took in a Vegan show today.All the way to the event my kid was filling me in on the aspects of Veganism...animal suffering..your eating their pain...eating dead carcasses...the crap they put in your food , meat ,processed an all.
...the energy released when you follow the food plan..e.t.c ,e.t.c ,the fact that vegans are more authentic, they are more in touch with who they really are , that vegan followers just feel like different people and ofc I was following with interest. 

Started wondering around the show trying all the freebie food and was taken aback.Everything was tasty ,the cheese ,vegan ham,chocolate ,  vegan pizza , cactus water ,perkiers(a sort of sweet ) , granola in soya milk.

Then finally a sort of barbecued pulled pork called Oomph made of soya beans that was totally delicious. So here I am for 7 days going totally vegan ...my kid said I'll feel totally different and I'm a bit excited because another way to give up chocolate a bad addiction of mine.

Also two different people randomly asked us about the vegan food we were buying in the supermarket...so a way to talk to new people who  are very interested..it's all good😁

So just asking anyone else surprised by a new interest that came out of left field?

Wait, how does going vegan make you give up chocolate?

Honestly, I don't feel any different. Though, I was a vegetarian before I was vegan, so maybe that's why. Vegans aren't these magical healthy creatures, either. It won't really help you lose weight or be healthier or any of that, because there's a lot of vegan junk food out there too. It still depends on what you are eating and how much. I don't think they're more authentic either. It's one of those you are who you are and we're all individuals and all that. Depending on who the vegan is, they may just be a pompous ass. lol

Also, I TOLD YOU vegan food was good. lol (I don't eat the fake meat crap that tastes like meat. If I wanted something that tasted like meat, I would just eat the meat.)

Good luck on the 7 days though, it's not as easy as you think and make sure you read labels. I think it's easier over where you are because things like sugar aren't made with animal products.

It's all good my kid has been vegan for four months so is going to  show me the way.Galaxy and Milk chocolate my fauvorites will be replaced with fruit...I'm determined and felt really ill and guilty after the ham laden Tesco sarnie I ate at the show ..see it's started already 😁.I did have some gooseberry and coconut dark chocolate and that was awesome too.

But I'm a novice just repeating the thoughts he had since turning vegan and obviously vegans on YouTube he has studied.Anyway off for my vegan tea with soya and vegan cheese and mushrooms on toast😉.Apparently I'm also going to end up with a healthy glow to my skin a common result of veganism so what's not to like 🤳

You do know you got a 100% ultra-biased opinion from one extreme, right?

You should go visit the other extreme and hear what they have to say and then judge both for yourself before deciding to blindly follow either.

Man, you really need to smoke some ganja and self-reflect a little because you've come off in a such an unpleasant, condescending manner towards everyone in the time that I've seen you on here. Even if you had a point here (or not) it was unsolicited and just makes you look like "that guy."
