Your Thoughts Thursday: Your Vegan Questions

October 7, 2010 by Keri

It feels like I’ve asked a lot of questions!  I love reading your thoughtful responses and I think many of you enjoy reading people’s comments also, even if you’re not feeling like commenting on that particular question.  Trust me, I could think of questions endlessly, but what I really want to know is what you’d love to see us talking about on a Your Thoughts Thursday.  On a side note, I’m going to get back to answering each one myself, as well.  I used to post my response to each topic in the comments section at the end of the day, but I’ve kind of gotten away from that for one reason or another.  But since many of you have expressed interest, ask and ye shall receive… within reason… no, you can’t have my Vita-Mix.  So my question is, What do you want to ask I Eat Trees readers on Your Thoughts Thursday? Don’t worry, if I use your question I’ll give you credit and a link if you have a blog too.  Feel free to come up with as many questions as you want, being as specific as you wish.  I don’t think my comments section cuts you off until you’ve written a short novel…

    Are your family/friends supportive of your decision to go Vegan what problems if you’ve had any with your family/friends over your veganism

    What’s the most common question you’ve had when people have learnt/are told that your vegan?

    Do you have a lot of close vegan friends? It sucks because my close vegan friends actually live far away. I know a few vegans here and they aquaintances, but not close to me like vegan friends I consider family. Distance is really lame sometimes.

      Krys I feel your pain all my vegan friends live very far away (I live in the UK they live in Europe & USA) so I tend to find it hard to talk to the people cloeset to me about my veganism share recipes cook together ect which is why I’m thannkful for the internet as it has allowed me to connect and meet so many like minded people as well as get some great recipes and to make wonderful friends with other vegans who I’d of never met if it weren’t for the net.
      If you ever want someone to talk to my ear is always open as is my own blog.
