It was sometime in 2006/2007. My wife was enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC and she was constantly coming home after each seminar enlightened and disgusted at the same time. I was intrigued to say the least. What was it that was nudging this cancer survivor/devout animal lover/quasi-vegetarian to step it up another level that I had never even heard of? What was VEGAN and why did my wife want to go vegan and why did she want me to listen to a CD of someone who spoke at one of her seminars? Who was Howard Lyman and why was he a MAD COWBOY?
Well, if you don’t know who Howard is and you’re a vegan then you have some reading to do. A fourth generation farmer/rancher, who went vegan due to some serious health issues, was sued along with Oprah by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and WON for speaking out about mad cow disease, had convinced me, a Guy to Go Vegan. My wife, and Howard changed my life for the better and I have never been happier. I was always compassionate towards animals, but I never thought to apply that compassion towards what I eat, drink and wear until now.
Being a vegan is so much more than what I put into my body. For me its about the adventure and discovery of great vegan products. I’m a regular guy. I love sports, music, food, beer, clothes and I love rocking a nice moustache from time to time. When I found out that my beer wasn’t vegan and my shaving cream wasn’t either and my boots…duh!, leather, I hit the web and searched. I searched and searched and what I found is that there are a lot of websites that sell vegan high heels and vegan friendly make up among several other things. I have absolutely no beef with these companies/websites. In fact every time I find a new one I immediately show them to my wife. The designs and materials that they use should be used by the entire fashion industry. What was a little harder to find, but not impossible, were the vegan moustache waxes, vegan leather boots and vegan guitar straps to mention a few.
From the food to the drink, the clothes and the shave and all the in between, Guys Go Vegan will help you go vegan and stay vegan. Let me turn you on to all of the great things this lifestyle has to offer. Save the animals, save the earth, live a more fulfilling life and look sharp and dapper doing it.
