Another approach is to provide literature or website links that provide more information that someone can read at their own leisure. If you have a sample of a really great natural sweetener or a healthier product that tastes great, why not share it with a friend so they can enjoy it when they like. For me, what I mentioned above and the reason for the way I eat has evolved over many years and was due to a booth I visited for ‘Mercy for Animals’ at a local Vegetarian Fest in one of our favorite local parks who are advocates for farmed animals. Holding their magazine and seeing heartbreaking images and speaking to the knowledgeable staff of the organization helped me to learn new things I didn’t know before and let’s face it, visuals can be powerful. This same magazine that shared gripping photos also provided great vegan and vegetarian recipes, I loved those positive options. I’ve always loves animals but since that time I felt a greater sense of compassion towards all creatures including farmed animals who are treated as a commodity.
When I was younger I would get pretty amped up about things I was passionate about, over time though I’ve learned how to soften and refine my approach knowing that kindness and grace wins every time.
