  • How and when did I go vegan? What exactly do I eat? Just how fucking old am I? What

  • are my thought onRaw Till 4”? That and more in today’s Q&A

  • Today I’m going to be hitting some of the basics. If you don’t hear your question

  • today, don’t fret. There’s going to be a lot more Q&A videos. And some of your questions

  • might require their own video. For instance, I had a lot of requests about my tattoos so

  • I did a tattoo tour video on Monday. I also had a lot of B12 questions so Wednesday was

  • all about b12. If you missed either of those, there’s links to them in the description

  • below.

  • By the way, if you hear weird noises in the background, Ooby’s going after one of her

  • toys, and doing it in the way that she does everything. Very loudly.

  • So let’s get started! The most-asked question by far was how and why and when I went vegan.

  • Well honestly, I can’t give you an exact date. My mother tells me when I was four years

  • old I started to refuse to eat meat. I don’t consciously remember this myself. But as I

  • grew up and learned where dairy and eggs actually come from, I stopped eating those as well.

  • You see when other kids my age were going door-to-door selling girl scout cookies, I

  • was the weird kid going door-to-door to educate about the plight of mountain gorillas in Africa,

  • and raising money for the Dian Fossey Foundation. I fund that when youre, like, three feet

  • tall, people don’t really take you seriously.

  • But I was definitely not raised in a vegan household, which addresses Eric Jonesquestion,

  • is anyone else from your family vegan?” Sadly, no.

  • Both Ilovesvetlana101 and Niko F askedWhat did you do with non-vegan items you had from

  • before you went vegan? Like leather belts, wool sweaters, non-vegan shampoos, etc. Did

  • you use them up or wear them out, or give them away, or throw them away?

  • When I originally went vegan in my youth I don’t think a lot of those things were actually

  • on my radar. But when I became aware of them, my personal choice was to throw away whatever

  • items were animal-derived. But that’s not a vegan dictate that you have to do. If your

  • choice is to have no shoes in winter or wear a pair of leather boots that you bought ten

  • years ago before you were vegan, wear the damn boots.

  • Several of you, including Jac Vegan, The Veggie Nut, and Eric Jones asked how old am I? Well

  • if you guys are running a betting pool, get ready. I am, as of April…30 years old. But

  • I still don’t know how to dress like an adult.

  • Melissa Boisvenue asked, “What's your best response to the classicAnimals were put

  • on earth for us to eatremark by meat-eaters?” There’s actually a really kick-ass quote

  • from Alice Walker that addresses this very question. She says, “The animals of the

  • world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people

  • were made for white, or women created for men.” Although the argument that animals

  • were put here for us to eat, presupposes the existence of a god or creator. And if you

  • don’t personally hold that believe and are talking to someone who does, the conversation

  • might not be that productive.

  • The Veggie Nut asks, “Do you have a vegan idol/hero/favorite? I totally love Gary Yourofsky.

  • Was wondering if you have a fave?” I do. And it’s actually the same person. I was

  • already vegan the first time I saw Gary’s talk. But his activism, and its effectiveness,

  • inspired and drove me to try to make even a fraction of the difference that he has in

  • the world. Which, by the way, answers Chemese Armstrong’s question, “What made you start

  • making videos?” If you haven’t already, please watch Gary’s talk.

  • Both Alice Klein and krisgiovanetti asked if I actually know Gary personally and if

  • I’ve met him. And yes I do and I have. In fact, one of the times I was volunteering

  • at SASHA Farm animal sanctuary, Gary and his wife came out. And with Monte, the co-founder,

  • we helped rescue these two beautiful boys: Bhima and Dharma.

  • While I’m on the topic of SASHA Farm animal sanctuary, krisgiovanetti also askedyour

  • necklace looks really cool- what is it?” This necklace was made by Christine Wagner,

  • who works at SASHA Farm animal sanctuary. She’s an incredible woman who does so much

  • for the animals there. Her website is designspecimen.com, where you can get your own hand made jewelry

  • with a message. So definitely head over and check out her stuff! My necklace saysvegans:

  • a voice for the voiceless.” And it’s a little worn, because I wear it every day.

  • Cepharma asked, “What is your specificregime’? High carb low fat? Raw till 4?” The way

  • I eat would most likely be categorized, I guess, as a high carb low fat raw vegan diet.

  • Now that’s not to say I don’t get a wild hair up my ass every once and a while and

  • steam some vegetables or a potato. x

  • Crazycatlady1313 asks, “I am a raw till 4 vegan. What are your views on it?” Well

  • first off, I support any diet that’s vegan. And the way of eating vegan that I support

  • the most, and that I think is the perfect way to eat vegan, is whatever way of eating

  • you can sustain and will keep you vegan. I don’t think there’s one right way to do

  • vegan. I really enjoy eating a raw diet, but it’s not for everyone. Whereas eating vegan

  • IS for everyone.

  • I think the Raw Till 4 diet is a great blend of the benefits of being a raw vegan, and

  • a way of eating that’s sustainable and realistic for most people. Being vegan should not be

  • a chore. It should not be something you have tosuffer through.” You shouldn’t feel

  • deprived or unsatisfied. Being vegan should be delicious and full of variety. So whatever

  • way of eating vegan that fulfills you, and that is something you feel you can continue

  • for the rest of your life, THAT is the perfect way of eating vegan. If youre coming from

  • a pure health standpoint, then yes, certain ways of eating are going to be better than

  • others. But as far as I, and, I’m sure, the animals are concerned, even if you sit

  • on the couch all day with one hand down your pants and the other hand shoving sweet-chili

  • Doritos into your gaping mouth, as long as youre not consuming animal products, it’s

  • A-Okay with me, and them! If you have any other questions you’d like answered in a

  • future video, leave them in the comments below. I’ll see you soon!
