Hey. I’m the Avocadbro. I like animals, but I don’t like eating them.

I completely replaced animal products in my diet about 10 years ago. I made the decision I didn’t want to give another dollar to the meat, egg, and dairy industries. Why? I answer that here.

Since going vegan, I feel happier because I’m eating and living in line with my core values. It’s against my values to hurt animals or pay people to hurt animals.

I made this site to write about different arguments for and against veganism. Eventually I want this website to be a resource to respond to every single counter-argument I’ve heard about veganism. With lots of sources.

Ultimately, that’s why I became vegan. I know of no compelling counter-argument to living a life without buying animal products.

Check back for my latest thoughts and news about snacks, nutrition, ethics, and vegan-ish stuff.

Sometimes, I post pics of awesome food on Instagram (see above).

Want to talk vegan stuff? Email me at theavocadbro at gmail dot com.

And check out the official avocadbro store! (This helps me pay to host the website.)

  3. Hi Andrew — I saw that you will be attending the Natural Products Expo East and wanted to gauge your interest in stopping by the Natierra Foods booth.

    Other than having an array of superfoods to sample — from chocolate covered goji berries to toasted hemp seeds — Natierra will be celebrating reaching 250,000 meals in their mission to provide one million meals to children in Haiti by 2018 as a part of their Feed a Soul project.

    Natierra’s Feed A Soul Project offers for every bag or shaker of Natierra’s nutrient-dense superfoods, they will give one nutritious meal to a child in need in Haiti, in partnership with the nonprofit organization Convoy of Hope.

    Natierra will be at booth 1231 and we’d love to tell you more about Feed a Soul and all the recipes we’ve built around the project that not only are good for you, but gives back to children in Haiti. Hope to see you!

    Andrew, I am a patient of your dad’s, and have been for 25 years. I shared with him about my becoming a Vegan this year, and he shared with me your blog. Thanks for all you are doing, and please know that my kids, who are your age, are all Vegans as well. Please keep it up. Thanks, Keith
