Sound advice: veganism is radically different from the Standard American Diet (SAD), and it will take some support in the beginning to find recipes and restaurants you like, find vegan products you can afford, learn about substitutes for you favorite foods, and learn how to act in awkward social situations. It can be done alone, but we all know friends can make a huge difference.
Today’s assignment is to find another vegan to be friends (or at least acquaintances) with. This is going to be a problem for me. People in Southeast Missouri are simply not vegan. There is nothing wrong with getting a little creative, though. For the benefit of everyone, I’ll make a list of ideas:
- City Dwellers: Meetup
- College Students: Your might have a club, or you can start one!
- Everyone Else
Good luck everybody. Let me know what works for you, and I’ll do the same.
