Welcome to Happy Vegan Living. We have created this site to share how wonderful happy vegan living is! We will be sharing great ethical vegan educational resources, amazing vegan recipes and awesome vegan and plant-based businesses and events.
“The word “veganism” denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude – as far as possible and practical – all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal- free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals” Donald Watson, founder of the Vegan Society.
Simply put, as sentient beings, animals have the right to not be used by humans. We reject speciesism and embrace non-violence. Veganism is not a diet or a lifestyle, it is an ethical position grounded on the beliefs above. Pant-based = diet; Veganism = ethical position. When we refer to veganism on this site, we are referring to the ethical position, based on animal rights.
We are not a business, we are not selling anything, nor will we be asking for donations. We won’t be promoting sites or pages asking for donations with the occasional exception of select vegan run animal sanctuaries. You won’t see any graphic images here, we want to create a positive and happy vegan space!
We want to share interesting and useful information on living happy vegan lives and how easy it is to make tasty vegan food. We hope you find this site helpful and if you are not already vegan, that we can help inspire you to go vegan! Please follow us on Instagram, @happyveganlivng and Facebook, Happy Vegan Living.
We welcome your feedback about our posts, recipes and any other ideas you have. Also, if you want help in how to “veganise” a favourite dish, feel free to contact us.
