Is It Hard To Be Vegan?

Share this:

Have you ever been asked this question? I’m asked it all the time.

Although I don’t think it’s hard to be vegan, I do think there is a challenging aspect of veganism that is rarely talked about and yet prevalent for so many. I think it’s what stops people from becoming vegan, and acknowledging this component will make us better, more honest advocates when answering this question.

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
