(Meet Lindsey! She's the blogger of Hello Mr. Rabbit, where she shares vegan recipes and cool photographs of her adventures. Here's her story about how she became vegan and her unique pudding recipe!)
I first become a vegetarian when I was seventh grade, on a dare from a friend to see how long I could last without eating meat. Annnd here I am almost ten years later! When I originally stopped eating meat, I still ate fish (which made me a pescetarian). When I started my first year of high school, I stopped eating fish and became an activate for PETA, and would pass out pamphlets at my school to everyone. Around the age of seventeen , I realized PETA was not everything I had thought them up to be and a became a vegan that year as well. I have been a vegan for four years now, and couldn't feel better.
For me, eating meat is nothing that passes my through my mind anymore. I can honestly not say that I will stay a vegan forever, but I have no doubts that I will be a vegetarian for as long as I live. The cruelty I have seen and researched about the meat industry are things that will never leave me. I don't feel guilty about items that I eat and that is something that always helps my conscience.
Chocolate Avocado Kiwi Pudding
Peel and slice the avocados and kiwis, and place them into a blender. Add the agave nectar, coco powder, vanilla abstract, and milk into the blender with the fruits. Blend ingredients until mixture is smooth and no lumps, then serve in a small bowl or refrigerate until desired coldness. (this is a recipe I did on my blog! here is the link!) This is my favorite simple, vegan dessert to make. I am constantly making this for breakfast!
