Reporter Staying Vegan

After a successful month of vegan eating, writer Grant Butler chooses to stick with his new cruelty-free lifestyle.

On Monday, journalist Grant Butler's one-month vegan experiment ended, but according to The Oregonian writer, his plant-based lifestyle is just beginning. Butler, a lifelong meat-eater, went vegan during the month of February and chronicled his month-long foray into compassionate eating online. Initially, his reasons for eating vegan were simple: He wanted to get healthier and lose weight, make compassionate and environmentally friendly food choices, and explore a lifestyle that he and his newspaper co-workers were unfamiliar with. After losing 12 pounds, feeling healthier than ever, and discovering new foods, Butler says that his decision to stick with veganism after February 28 was easy.
