It was great to see such a big and enthusiastic group come to the first day of the Triangle Vegan Pledge! We all enjoyed Christine’s introduction and Linda’s cooking demo (and the delicious food that followed) as well as the amazing vegan baked goods (recipes should be coming soon!)
But the best part was perhaps breaking up into small groups and chatting among mentors and pledges about the challenges and fun involved in transitioning to a vegan diet. In my opinion, the community and support provided by the Vegan Pledge is its most valuable aspect: going vegan with friends and mentors to help you is so much easier than doing it alone- and I know from personal experience!
Pledges received their care packages, which contain a few goodies that should help make their first week as vegans go smoothly. Although not every mentor could make it, we’ll all be in touch to help our pledges and quell any concerns they may have.
Congrats again to all the pledges for making what we hope will be the best decision of your life! Best of luck with your first week, and we’ll see you again next week!
-Jamie, vegan mentor
