Hi there! My name’s Regan but you can call me Regan the vegan. I’ve been living the vegan van life for three months now but I’ve been vegan for over four years. And one of the questions I get asked most often is ‘Regan the vegan, why did you go vegan?’ So, let me tell you all a story about how it all vegan (began)!
Firstly lettuce (let us) just say that before I was vegan I was very much not vegan. I used to want to eat meat for every meal and I didn’t carrot (care at) all about anything I was eating. That’s right, it was about a one in a melon (million) chance that I would go vegan!
It’s true I was far from eating a pear-fect (perfect) diet and with all the meat and processed animal products I was eating, I was left chubby and feeling low on energy, I was just left feeling a beet (bit) tired … all of the time. So that’s when I decided to go vegan and immediately I felt good, from my head tomatoes (to my toes)! At first my mum was a bit confused. She thought I was a bit of a nut but eventually (nut butter) she came round. Being vegan can be annoying at times though. It does drive me bananas every time I get asked a bunch of questions about where I get my protein. That’s lentil (until) I told them how I’d bean (been) taking care of it … with lentils and beans.
Seriously though, guys, you’ve got to stop asking about the protein, cashew (because you) are really getting on my nerves. I mean, it drives me absolutely nuts. It’s enough to make a mango (man go) crazy and at times I just feel like I want to kale (kill) the next person that asks me about protein.
Protein’s not the only thing that seems to worry people. Others tell me I’m being a bit too hardcore. But to that I say, peas (please), I’ve hummus-ly (honestly) never felt any better.
At first I thought it would be difficult. For breakfast I always enjoyed an egg. Plants (eggplants) won me over though and now my vegan smoothies taste berry (very) delicious!
So at first I was vegan just for my health, until I saw videos that ap-peeled (appealed) to my compassionate side. Videos that were raisin (raising) awareness of factory farming and made me goji (go, ‘Gee’) … This needs to stop! I want to keep this video short so there’s not mushroom (much room) for details. But if you’d like to find oat (out) more about veganism, check out the links in the description below.
I’m sorry if anyone thought this video was a bit too corny but humour is a kiwi (key way) to get people interested and olive (I love) making puns, even if it doesn’t come with a round of apple-ors (applause).
So if you or your dad thought this video was pretty rad or even just rad-ish (radish), feel free to hit ‘like’or ‘subscribe’, or comment with your own favourite pun, down below.
(Text on screen) This video was tested on animals. They didn’t find it funny either.
I feel pretty grape (great) now that that’s over. Thanks shallots (a lot) for watching and if you share it with your friends then chias (cheers). But if you’ll excuse me I’m actually on a hot date – yep, nice and gooey, just how I like it!
What do you think about veganism? Did you enjoy Regan's video, and can you make a pun like Regan's?
