14) Cleaning up the dishes is a snap if you follow a low-fat vegetable based vegan diet. You don't even need to scrub, just a quick rinse usually does the trick.

25) u are pretty much forced to learn how to cook better and its great fun to chef it up and prepare colorful veggie meals! my cooking is amazing now. (its alot more fun to create meals being vegan and experimenting, than slapping a chicken breast on a plate)

26)because u learn so much more about the environment when being vegan, and u can make better choices for the earth and its creatures!

27) u dont have to deal with bloody animal corpse

28) your health is so much better when being vegan!
