Try Vegan!

There are lots of things each of us can do to make the world a better place. However, eating vegan is likely the most effortless – and enjoyable! – way to have a profoundly positive impact as often as every day.

As the many far-reaching effects of our food choices come to light, interest in eating a vegetarian diet continues to grow. The Vegetarian Resource Group’s 2011 poll, conducted by Harris Interactive, indicates that more than five million American adults are vegan.

So try vegan for your next meal!

Our FREE starter guide offers easy-to-follow recipes – including nondairy cheeses and mock meat – plus a vegan foods glossary and meal-planning tips. There’s also a list of recommended resources, such as cookbooks and on-line/ mail-order stores that specialize in vegetarian products.

In addition, the booklet contains information that can help you optimize your health on a plant-based diet. A detailed guide to specific nutrients is provided, with recommendations on how much of each nutrient you should be getting and which foods are good sources.


Vegan Outreach

“Veganism has given me a higher level of awareness and spirituality.”

Dexter Scott King, son of
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Vegetarian Times, 10/95

Being vegan isn’t about being perfect or pure –
it’s about reducing suffering.

Instead of supporting the hidden cruelties of factory farms and slaughterhouses, each of us can choose to act with compassion by boycotting animal agriculture.

Making humane choices is the ultimate affirmation of our humanity.

Over the course of a lifetime, one person’s food choices can affect thousands of animals. In order to prevent the most suffering, it’s important we each take an approach we can sustain.

After reviewing these pages, some people may decide to go vegan immediately; others may choose to eat fewer animal products and explore more vegetarian meals.


Remember: Veganism is not an end in itself. It should not be thought of as a religious doctrine prohibiting a list of evil ingredients. Rather, veganism is best viewed as a tool for reducing suffering.

Vegan Outreach can provide you with copies of our brochures (Compassionate Choices, Even If You Like Meat, and/or Your Choice) to share with friends and family or to distribute in your community. Please see our catalog to order literature, as well as videos and other resources.

Our advocacy essays provide more ideas for outreach. And our free weekly email newsletter keeps members up to date with the latest news and actions.

‘If I knew you, I wouldn’t eat you.’
