A More Positive Side of Vegan

Earlier today I published a post condemning PETA's newest pro-vegan ad that promotes violence rather than compassion. After seeing the comments coming in, I thought I'd post a few videos that put veganism in the positive light it deserves. We're not all crazy.

I'll be honest - it was difficult to find videos that were not made by PETA, and I can't promise that the people I've selected are not PETA supporters, but I believe these voices can open people's eyes about animal cruelty and the health benefits of a vegan diet better than putting someone into a neck brace.

Check them out after the jump.
