So I ended up ordering a total of 7 books...only one that wasn't about veganism (whether nutrition, recipes, or animal rights) which was on childrens nutrition. My husband said since I like to read and I was buying used books for me to just get some I thought I would like. I can't complain...with shipping included I got 7 books for about 50 dollars!! And all were called at least good condition.
Anyhow today one came in the mail. Its called the vegan sourcebook. Has anyone read this? I'm still only a couple handful of pages into it but its really interesting, the part I'm on us a vegan history lesson on when the term came about and things like that. One thing I noticed that I thought was interesting and should maybe Be brought up more often in the honey discussions is that in 1944 the vegan society published a manifesto and it specifically states...
"to advocate that man's food should be derived from fruits, bits, vegetables, grains and other wholesome Non-animal products and it should exclude flesh, fish, fowl, eggs, honey
, and animals milk, bitter'and cheese.
So even the first real group of vegans didn't condone honey
