"I DON'T HAVE TIME TO BE VEGAN"

If you've got time to buy animal products, you've got time to buy fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, lentils, seeds, and grains. Being vegan is no more time-consuming than being a non-vegan, so this is a completely redundant excuse. Indeed, often the foods that take longest to cook are animal products. Put it this way: it ain't the nut roast that's in the oven for 8 hours on Christmas Day.

Add to that routine visits to hospitals and pharmacies that are part and parcel for many people who eat animal products due to their aggravation of our most common diseases, and you'll find that eating animal products turns out to be one of the most time-consuming endeavours you can undertake.

- George Martin

How about the people who don't have vegan products where they live? Sure, they can always get the basics (fruits and vegetables) but other than that the stores near me don't really have anything, other than almond milk, that I've seen.

I'm open to trying plant-based food, I really am (even though I'm a very picky eater), but there's not an awful lot of options where I live.

It is a common misconception that vegans need to eat vegan nuggets, burgers and sausages. Sure, they're tasty, but they aren't nessecary for optimal health; they're luxury products. You don't think I eat those every day, right? =P (Razz) 
A few years back I lived in an area with only 1 small supermarket, I didn't have a car and the vegs they had were pretty limited, and I was too poor to order luxury products online at the time. But that doesn't mean I couldn't eat complete meals. After all, what do you think the veggie burgers and stuff are made from? From vegetables and spices. You can even make them yourself using basic ingredients (I often do this, and put stock in the freezer) if you insist on eating something similar to your current diet. Looking up "vegan chicken recipe" for example on Youtube can be a big help: www.youtube.com/results?search… Try it sometime. ^^

Hey look a bunny. Aww, it's cute.

Yeah, I don't have to worry if my scrambled tofu breakfast has reached the correct temperature to not GIVE ME DISEASES.
