    So i finally went vegan 3 weeks ago after being Pescatarian for 5 months, my little brother has been Vegan for a year now, and my father is very aware of it, doesn't approve, and quite frankly doesn't understand (like most farmers)

    I'm currently hiding it from him as i feel he may be disappointed as he's a farmer (mainly cider, but also raises beef cattle) and feels like people should be supporting the industry, do you think i should carry on keeping it a secret, or the next time i have a Sunday roast, explain to him why there is no meat on my plate..?

    Is anyone else hiding it from their parents or certain people?

    I say explain it to him! Better to try and help people understand then to keep it a secret!

    So, quick question, if you have been pescatarian for five months you haven't been eating beef during that time period either, no? I agree that hiding it is not a good idea and I would suggest contributing to the meals something tasty and vegan and not necessarily making it a topic of every conversation but just living it.
