So now I'm on my vegan journey and I realize that I haven't shared this with my family yet.
My sister is the first person on my "hit list". She hasn't eaten red meat since high school so my gut tells me this is a good place to start. When I tell her I've decided to be Vegan not only was I amazed at how supportive and helpful she was but the many recipe suggestions have been amazing. We have been to many vegan restaurants together and a couple of them she suggested as they were new favorites of hers. It has been great and fun because we have been hanging out more with each other either trying out a new restaurant or cooking. I've noticed that since I've become vegan she has cut down her chicken consumption which puts a bit of a smile on my face.
My mothers response when I told her was "Not another one of you". I explained to her that I had more of a restrictive diet now then my sister and knew she had heard me. The funny thing about her comment is the next day I got a call from her telling me she had been testing out recipes for me and she made this amazing quinoa she thought I would really enjoy. I think she didn't know how to respond to me but she couldn't be more supportive even if she doesn't understand why.
How did your family respond when you told them you were vegan?
