Luckily, as veganism grows attitudes towards a plant-based lifestyle seem to be improving. But most vegans still know what it’s like to be made to feel as if you’re an inconvenience at meal-times. Uninformed meat-eaters may label you as being ‘picky’ without understanding the ethical, health and environmental factors which make veganism a no-brainer.

Christmas is a potential minefield for vegans having to endure such close-minded arguments. And one vegan’s family were so dismissive of her dietary choices that they abandoned her for their festivities. The vegan was left heartbroken after being excluded from the annual celebrations. Luckily many others were on hand to offer guidance in response to her post on Reddit. See how the heartbreaking story unfolded below.
