Hi everyone! I've been vegan for about 2 years, but it wasn't in a healthy way.
Currently working towards living an actually healthy vegan lifestyle

Hello uracrei! Welcome to the forum.
What caused you to make the switch to veganism? How is it in Seoul? Is your avatar a picture of Seoul? it seems nice there.

Hi Red! Thanks for the welcome.

I switched for convenience reasons, moved off to college and maintaining a vegan diet was way easier and much more cost efficient.
Seoul is interesting, it has a vegan community that is small, but growing quickly and a lot of Korean Nationals are open and accepting and will do their best to be accommodating.

The photo is not of Seoul, but I plan on putting one there soon!

Welcome! We're glad to help with advice.
Are you also learning some of the philosophical ethical arguments for veganism?

@Jebus Thank you! I was recommended this from a friend. Looks like a good place to be

@brimstoneSalad yes I am exploring the "why" and "For whom" arguments for veganism. I was definitely a vegan for health reasons but I am so interested in the ethical and philosophies behind a vegan lifestyle.
