{Interview} Why Vegan?

Readers of Made of Stars know that I have been an ethical vegan for 17 years, and that Mat and I are raising tiny vegans.


I had the opportunity to reflect on my journey to veganism when Joanna of Green Reset interviewed me for the Why Vegan section of  her blog.

Also, I recommend reading Joanna’s interview with Sergei Boutenko – especially if you enjoy green smoothies. You will find Sergei’s interview here.

I extend my gratitude to Joanna for featuring my vegan journey on Green Reset. Thank you Joanna 🙂

      Aaaawww, thanks Chris! I am so proud of you, and the manner in which you have enthusiastically embraced veganism. I am so happy about the amazing health transformation you have achieved! You were glowing when we saw you.

    Woot! I have been vegan for 17 years as well :). My daughter Beth was vegan for 5 years as well (now she eats meat for the queen 😦 ). Glad to meet you and just crammed you into my RSS Feed Reader…you are number 395 :).

    • Ally says:

      I am honored to be number 395, thank you!
      It’s great to meet another 17-year vegan! Woo hoo! We’re not dead yet. 😉 we haven’t died from lack of meat, and our bones haven’t snapped. 🙂
      You’re number 110 in my reader.

      • narf77 says:

        Yeah, I was planning on dissolving next week but decided to hold it together till my kids bought me my mothers day gifts and then I could just do my best drama queen wicked witch of the west and learn to live without my bones…entirely overrated methinks! ;).

    What a wonderful interview, Ally! You live an inspired and admirable life. I am beyond thrilled at your success with raising vegan children. So many people scoff at the concept, and your family is pure proof that it’s not only possible, but effective as well. Thanks for sharing a little peek into your world.

    Great interview! Well done on 17years, you are my inspiration 🙂

  9. Thomas says:

    very interesting interview !! well done 🙂 I hope that many people read this and will take some fear away from the common opinion that raising children is not right or they will suffer in the nutritional sense. Also awesome for you to mention Ethical Vegan 🙂 too

    • Ally says:

      Thanks Thomas!
      I felt that it was important to use the term ‘ethical vegan’. That’s what I am! Proudly.
      I’m glad you enjoyed the interview, and I am grateful for your positive comment.
      I hope you are well.

    AII loved your interview! I especially enjoyed reading about your kids asking everyone if they’re vegan. I am fascinated by kids understanding and approach towards veganism. My nephew, 8, tells EVERYONE at restaurants and grocery stores that I am vegan– I don’t understand why, but find it amusing.

    A very lovely interview, indeed! So much good advice, too!
