I’ve decided to write this post without much fanfare. Because it’s my blog, not my husband’s, and one day it will be his story to tell. But I can tell you this:
- Not long after I started this blog I wrote confessions of a vegan lifestyle coach: I have an omnivore husband.
- Last year I shared Dave’s decision to be vegetarian at home.
- Just over three weeks ago I asked Dave to consider doing a 21-day vegan challenge; he said yes.

Saturday night we saw the film COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret in Denver. It was his final weekend on the vegan challenge. In the car, on the way home, he turned to me and said, unprompted, “I’m going to stay plant-based at home and I’ll be vegetarian outside of the home. For now.” We both learned an incredible amount of new information about the environmental toll of animal agriculture. It was a turning point for him.
I’ll take it.
I was vegetarian for eight years before I went vegan. It’s been a journey.
Dave’s on his. And I’m grateful.
