|Q1: How long have you been vegan and does your entire family eat a vegan diet?||I’ve been a vegan for 3 years. Even though my husband and sons aren’t vegans, they enjoy a lot of vegan meals. In the beginning, I wanted the whole family to transition, but soon realized it takes time. My children weren’t born into this lifestyle, so they still remember a lot of our previous bad habits.
I will say my family’s taste buds are starting to change. They’re so accustomed to eating vegan meals (since I do most of the cooking), I notice they reach for healthier choices when we’re at a BBQ or dining out.Even if my kids never make the full transition, I’m still happy to set a solid foundation of vegan options for them while they’re still young. My husband has made a lot of progress and I wouldn’t be surprised if he decides to become a vegan.
|Q2: How challenging is it to make sure you and your family get a balanced meal? So many kids hate veggies. How do you get yours to eat them?A2: I have to say it was very difficult in the beginning to get my sons to eat more vegetables. I have three boys and my middle son didn’t want anything but hotdogs and chicken nuggets. I stay consistent with serving the vegetables, make sure the vegetables are flavorful and find creative ways to serve them plant-based meals. I’m happy to say that my boys enjoy vegetables more than they did in the past. I even started a series on my YouTube channel to show the vegan meals we eat as a family.|

It’s a great way for us to spend time together and for me to sweat a little.|
