Let’s be clear about my diet. I’m mostly vegan because it helps with my digestion, not necessarily for ethical, humane reason. Therefore, for the most part, I don’t eat anything that contains dairy, meat and seafood.
I do use honey and don’t cry over it.
If I’m out with friends and I see a dessert or entree I like that contains dairy, I’m going to buy it and try it.
If I make food for others, I’m not going to try to “veganize” anything unless I’m comfortable with the recipe and I know that person is open to trying vegan cuisine.
I call myself a vegan because that’s my diet for the most part.
Critics might scoff and demote me to a vegetarian.
But why should we even have these labels? Why should we have to associate with a type of diet and announce it to the world? Why can’t we just enjoy food, enjoy company?
Isn’t society already judgmental?
The list can go on.
Here is a sticky.
Here is a pen.
You can define me however you want.
I choose to live life, enjoy food, and accept who I am without the label.
