      In Re Richardson’s kitchen, her new diet collides with her old.
      There’s a stack of Southern Living cookbooks she’s never used under a
      shelf with liquid aminos and her favorite curry spice.

      She’s putting together a dish of quinoa and mixed vegetables as her
      90-year-old mother, James Watson, watches. Watson isn’t vegetarian,
      and doesn’t believe that the food she eats will change certain aspects
      of her health.

      Her attitude is in many ways the reason the Black Vegetarian Society
      of Texas exists.

      Richardson, a strict vegan since 2010, joined the group last year and
      uses careful planning and self-control to navigate her meals. Like
      many members of BVSTX, Richardson transitioned to a vegan diet after
      concerns about her health led her to re-examine what she was putting
      into her body.

      “You can control everything that has to do with your health by what’s
      at the tip of your fork,” she says.
