I became vegan over a month ago and I'm just now realizing something. I still have to buy eggs, honey, and chicken baby food on a regular basis. I own sugar gliders and have them on a BML diet. Glider enthusiasts suggest that you not change their diet as long as they are happy, healthy, and like what you are feeding them. So, the BML diet is what I have been feeding them since I got them. The recipe, if one batch is made (lasts me 10 days with 3 gliders) calls for about 1/2 cup honey, 2 2.5oz chicken baby food jars, and 1 egg, scrambled. It also calls for Gerber Juice and Yogurt mix which contains dairy.
Is this an issue with me being vegan. I pretty much go according to this rule. If the animal needs it, don't worry. I have cats that require meat based cat food, geckos that require live insects, snakes that require rodents either frozen or live, so I cannot escape the use of animal products unless I were to give up all my babies. (Which I will NEVER do.)
So my question is this. Since I have to use eggs, dairy, honey and cat food, what is a good way to make it as vegan friendly as possible. I know that sounds pretty stupid since technically vegans do not use animal products. (Also, does this make me a non-vegan since I still buy animal products. I don't consume them personally, but I do buy them)
