As the popularity and awareness of the benefits of veganism grow’s around the world, so does the anti-sentiment builds towards it from local governments and food manufacturers.
Namely, it’s all about revenue being lost from the meat and dairy industries all of which have vested government interests.
France has recently announced that it is banning Vegan companies from advertising meat-free foods with meat sounding equivalent names! for example; Veggie Fish, Meat-free Lamb, etc.
Below is a list of other countries which are trying to undermine Vegan companies, restaurants, and Supermarket from having vegan options:
On personal self-reflection being a Vegan requires a great deal of ‘Mind over Matter’, I have put together my own thoughts and play of words for what this actually means:
- It doesn’t ‘Matter’ what others think or says about being a Vegan, trust in your own ‘Mind’ in following your Vegan path.
- It doesn’t ‘Matter’ about what meat-eaters love or what farmers do, it’s just the system. Collective Vegan ‘Minds’ of belief and knowledge will change the system.
- It doesn’t ‘Matter’ that Veganism is actually expensive, as in your ‘Mind’ you are helping to save our planet.
- It doesn’t ‘Matter’ about the negative energies others give to me about being Vegan, I use my Wing Tsun (EWTO) ‘Mind’ and training to divert any negative forces away.
- What does ‘Matter’ is believing in your self as Vegan and having the ‘Mind’ plus willpower to back it up.
- Have a it doesn’t ‘Matter’ Mindset’ when others are tucking into their Subways sandwich at work.

So why is Veganism so hard for others to see or try?
Well, it’s the breaking away from the norm and expectations that society has made us become, where the food we eat must have been reared in a cage, slaughtered and then cooked.
Whilst exposing our bodies to countless man-made chemicals.
The key to me succeeding my own challenge and beyond my three-month target is knowing that I am making myself fitter, healthier and taking away profits from the meat and dairy factories.
Otherwise, I’d be eating this:
