100 percent vegan does not work at all

100 percent vegan - is that possible, or not?

Have you ever heard the saying "100% vegan is not possible"? Even if this argument came out of your own mouth, it's not the end of the world. I used to say that absolute veganism was impossible. And it's even true! But today I know that it doesn't matter.

Here I would like to explain to you exactly why this absolute perfection is not necessary. And why you are obviously not a hypocrite just because you don't implement something 100 percent. Let's go!

"100 percent vegan is not possible at all" - is the argument logical?

With this argument, meat eaters like to use the fact that it is simply not possible to ALWAYS act in the spirit of veganism. For example, if you accidentally trample an ant. Or drinking water from sewage treatment plants where fish are used to determine the water quality. That's true, of course! But can you justify not starting to exploit fewer animals for your own lifestyle at all, and to focus on a plant-based diet?

Why do you always have to make everything 100 percent perfect? Living vegan is not a sprint, but a marathon. A marathon in which you develop step by step, because every day you gain new experiences with plant-based nutrition and the motivating reasons for the vegan lifestyle collect. You can learn at your own pace and don't have to become a vegan overnight who does everything perfectly. I don't do everything perfectly myself. But when I think back a few months or years, I realize how much I've learned over time.

Going vegan works best step by step

Instead of using the argument "100 percent vegan is not possible" as an excuse not to try a plant-based diet, you should simply start adapting your eating habits at your leisure. For example, start by not eating meat for a few days a week - and reduce your meat consumption further over time. Once you have slowly gotten used to it, gradually replace other animal products with animal-free, plant-based alternatives. For example, cow's milk with soy or oat milk. Or scrambled eggs with Tofu with turmeric and sulfur salt. Gradually, consciously cook more dishes that contain fewer or no animal products - and take a look at Documentations like "Cowspiracy" or "Dominion", which will show you the processes in the Factory farming and thus trigger additional motivation for a vegan diet.

These are the first steps, which will be followed by many more if your personal attitude is focused on the positive effects for your health, our environment, the lives of animals and our global society.
