Veganigetarian. Okay so it's a made up word. I'm vegan 98.7% of the time, but on the rare occasion someone offers me a cookie I'm gonna eat it.

Disclaimer: I'm insane.

There is a difference, yes, but every vegan *is* a vegetarian, it's a subset of vegetarianism.

There is no difference between a vegan and a vegetarian, there *is* a difference between a vegetarian and a lacto-ovo vegetarian

Yes I agree that it is, but one certainly not claim them to be the same. Just saying. The statement above was rather ambiguous.

This is Veggieboards, you're preaching to the choir. We know that all vegans are vegetarians, but not all vegetarians are vegans.

It was a sarcastic reference to another thread where someone tried to prove some sort of point about bugs sometimes dying in the processing of vegan foods, which that person felt made them non vegan. A rather silly extreme and a prime example of the "vegan police" mentality.

Raw Vegan, and ridding myself of cancer . 3 weeks before i went for my last scan I started a raw vegan diet, with green juices, fresh fruit and veggies, nuts and seeds, and wow, one spot is gone and all the other spots are all going down, I could only say it was fron the awesome food I ate and loving every minute of it. I feel soooo good. there are great raw vegan books out there to read, I have about 10 or 12 of them. Mimi Kirk , Live Raw is an exellent one to start with.

While you were frutarian, did you still eat spinach? Or did you give up being a frutarian to eat spinach again?

I'm a vegetarian who don't use diary products, but I do eat eggs now and then. Eventually I'll go completely vegan, though.
