myq kaplan, last comic standing, vegan“I’ve been vegan about eight years, and was vegetarian for maybe five years before that. I remember thinking in high school that eating animals seemed wrong, but they were delicious, so oh well, which is the way I believe a lot of humans think. But when I got to college, the dining halls had more variety, and I just decided to try giving up meat. Because there were so many more options I’d never had, it wasn’t like I was restricting myself, and I was glad for my beliefs to line up more with my actions. I went through a similar mindset-shifting process when I became vegan; I thought it might be too difficult (having to read labels or ask questions all the time), but figured why not give it a shot. So I did, and it’s been working so far.”
