Right, so let's get this out in the open.
This is why some people dismiss the vegan lifestyle right off the bat.
Because it is hard.
Because even the most well meaning people can screw it up. Horribly.
Last time I posted in this group, my life situation was different.
My garden is bigger, now. My eggs come from the ladies that live in my backyard, and yes...I did butcher my first drake this year. (He was delicious. No regrets.)
I am now living in Portland, growing a lot of my own food and buying responsibly when I can't.
If given the option, I'd only ever eat lab grown meat.
But that's just it.
I can't see myself giving up meat or dairy. My husband won't, either.
Not unless I win the lottery.
I know there are vegan options that could keep me healthy and happy, but they are so far outside my price range, it's laughable.
How do you find that balance?
