My decision back in 1970 was simple. I decided that I wanted to live a non-violent life, as best I could. I didn’t know what I wanted to do professionally or where I wanted to live or who I wanted to love but I knew I wanted to be an example of what I would learn later is often referred to as “ahimsa”. Now to live non-violently for me seemed easy enough. I got along with all kinds of people, never lost my temper and never hit or hurt anyone in my life, at least not intentionally. So how would this lifestyle change my life? I realized immediately that it was my food choices that caused violence and suffering and death- and generally on a daily basis. I guess you could say that I realized at that moment that “Peace begins on your plate,” a phrase I would later coin. Too many years later, i finally saw the violence in eggs & dairy and became vegan!
