A panel of animal product-free Bay Area-ites tell it like it is
Bottom line? There are challenges to being a Bay Area vegan. But there are victories as well: feeling "lighter," minimizing your impact on the environment, being your own person, and delicious meals, to name a few. After hearing everyone's stories, I realized that becoming a vegan in the Bay is a lot like being a human in the Bay: endlessly frustrating, completely crazy, but also a chance to be a part of an earnest try for a more sustainable world.
