I’ve found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example – to lead with your fork, not your mouth.

Veganism = Empathy embodied. The key to invite people to a compassionate life is to practice dedicated empathy. It’s contagious! And always remind people we are animals too. The fact that we can type doesn’t change that!
