Not that I'd go straight to veganism cold turkey, but that's my overall goal. However, I have a problem. It's not that "meat is too good to give up" or anything, but every night for dinner we almost always eat dishes containing meat, and I never ever have the courage to just say "I'm not eating that anymore" to my parents, I guess I fear their reaction. Is this too weird, or is it a bit common? I guess it kind of has to do with my fear of changing anything about myself because I'm concerned about how they would react, but this is something that wouldn't be totally surprising to them. In fact, my mom has said to me before "With all your animal rights stuff, I'm surprised you're not a vegan!" but then when we were in washington dc I said something about not really liking meat or something, and she just said to me "if you didn't eat it, someone else will." So has anyone else had to deal with something similar? I'd really like some advice!
