I love summer πŸ‰ I'm happy

Hi! I'm Melissa Charlana. CEO of @nastyvegan, creator of #BlackVeganPower and #VeganBikeGang. I get down.
I found myself answering some questions for a new vegan in a Facebook group for black vegans and dammit they were good. So I'm sharing my answers here. I love you. Thanks for rocking with me ❀️✊🏾🍏 "The people that say you're not vegan if you don't follow dr. Sebi are such a small part of our population. Ignore them.

I don't treat it like a religion but it does mean a whole lot to me because it's a lifestyle that came from my heart.

I'm generally not rude to meat eaters. I did grow up eating meat but the moment I learned better and became able to do better I did. I think rude vegans need to keep both of those things in mind - does the person you're judging really know better? Are they able to do better at this time? Have compassion for humans as well as animals.

The meat names are convenient. They make it easy to describe what food we're mimicking. Most of us didn't become vegan because we didn't enjoy the taste of animal products. I did. I just could not be the cause of death and suffering for animals who can feel pain and love every bit as deeply as me. That's why I'm vegan.
I think people who are vegans for their health (plant based is a better term for them) tend to be the ones who have a live and let live attitude about pther people eating meat. Health is a personal choice, I agree. Causing millions of animals to be beaten, confined, raped, destroyed and then finally killed is not a personal choice. Particularly when it does not have to happen. I've been a vegetarian for 14 years and a vegan for 10. I'm in perfect health. I'm not talking about people with medical or economic circumstances when I said that everyone should go vegan. Though I do mean them as well I don't rest responsibility on their shoulders. I rest it on society as a whole. Once the middle class consumer speaks business will listen. Look at how rapidly vegan products are emerging everyday.

Our overall goal as humans should always be to reduce suffering." -- @melissacharlana

I am loving these plantpowered tees. I was on teespring and realized that there is a tote and mug with the same design. I am getting them as gifts. It's also a great opportunity to support the design owner who is a plantpowered sista πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒΏπŸŒ±#blackwomenworkout #plantbaseddiet #vegan #blackwomenworkout #ebonyfitness #holisticnutrition #healthyfood #healthymind #healthylifestyle #blackwomenlosingweight #blackyogis #blackyogini #blackyoga#blackvegans #blackvegan #blackvegansofig #blackvegansrock #blackveganlife #blackveganpower
