My resolution for the new year is to become more active for the animals. I want to share lots of delicious homemade vegan foods with people and maybe organize an event in my town. There are very few vegans here so it would be really great to start something and spread the word!

I resolve to take more time to educate my friends and co-workers about why I am a vegetarian and the simple things they can do to help animals (and why it is good for them too!).

I also am trying to get even closer to my goal of a vegan diet by elimiating foods I buy that contain eggs.

Lastly, I am hoping to volunteer at a shelter after I move - it not only helps the animals, it helps me!

My resolution is to contact more companies and ask them too leave out animal ingredients in their products.

Though I haven't made my full 2010 resolution list yet, there are 4 things I know will be on it when I do.
1-Test more vegan recipes and share the delicious results with non-vegans. (The gingerbread cookies were a huge success with friends and family this Christmas.)
2-Become certified in vegan nutrition, so I can counteract all the bad information with hard facts.
3-Petition my grocery store to carry more vegan products: Vegenaise, beet sugar, and soy yogurt, for starters.
4-Throw a delicious, fully vegan wedding!

My New Years Resolution is to get at Least Five People to transition to a Vegan Diet and Lifestyle for Life, and a Compassion towards All Living Beings!!! I will Continue to be a Voice for the Voiceless, and try to be Most Effective at Personal/Local/Global Activism!!!! And Continue to Educate myself More about Making Every Moment Count in my Activism!!!!
