Hi, my name is Julie. I'm 20 years old and live in Spokane, Washington (ugh).

A couple of months ago, I decided to become vegan after being vegetarian for quite some time. I'm very happy that I did, as it seems completely natural to me, and I wonder why I waited so long. I'm happy to find this board for information and idea sharing, etc.

I have one (silly) question: is there any significance in using "veg*n" as opposed to "vegan" ? It doesn't seem so, but I just wanted to be sure.

Anyway, hi to everyone!

veg*n: vegetarians who follow a vegan diet, but not the other aspects of veganism.

Huh?



Veg*n includes vegans and vegetarians. For instance - "Veg*ns don't eat meat."

I would tell you what "veg*n" means, but everyone else did, so...
