More thoughts...

I've spoken before about how the concepts of sacrifice and change towards healthier practices seem quite parallel through religion and numerous dietary protocols. I just read the following and was struck again by the similarity in how one thinks about sacrifice and change.

"I think as vegans, often we think that we have already given up SO much just by going vegan. And it is true, we have given up a lot. But at the same time, I don’t think we should see being vegan as a sacrifice, but more as something that set us free from a horrible industry. Giving up junk food should be seen in the same light. It is not a sacrifice, it is not a punishment, rather, something that sets us free from some pretty awful industries." from-http://veganhope.com/2011/02/08/say-goodbye-to-vegan-junk-food/
