Vegan-ism, lets do this

As of 12:00 am today January 14th 2013 young grasshopper and I have started our vegan challenge.  Last week I introduced our “Vegan Project”  and this week it all begins.  Below is a short video Danielle and I made to kick off our vegan adventure.  Be sure to follow our adventure on twitter with the hashtag #DandDGoVegan

  1. Good luck to both of you with this latest endevor!!! I hope you got your Flu vaccines this year……oh wait, Vegans can’t take the Flu vaccine since it manufactured with eggs. Well, …………😕………take your vitamins!!!!

  2. You are DEFINATELY a better person than I am. NO WAY could I give up my boots or milk for 2 weeks. Think I could probably do vegetarian for 2 weeks, but not vegan! Good Luck, I know you can do it!!!

  3. Have watched your tweets with a smile and finally saw the video – well done! Will be curious abou the big picture out-takes you both have from this experience in how ag can relate to different sectors.

  4. David, I admire the sacrifice you are making to better understand another viewpoint. You obviously understand that veganism is not something to be feared. Vegans and vegetarians represent no threat to meat eaters. On the other hand, if we all became vegans/vegetarians, they would suffer greatly. Simply trying to replace the iron from beef (the number one source of iron in the American diet) would pose a huge threat to everyone who doesn’t eat meat. Trying to replace the iron we get from beef with plant foods (spinach, kale and other dark leafy greens) would be impossible. We simply do not have enough land capable of raising these crops to meet the dietary needs of Americans, let alone the world. The ensuing global health crisis would be devastating.
