tpkyteroo luebeck Welcome! I think its cool that you can be more of a strict Vegan - right down to the clothes. Best wishes!

silva I guess people have different understanding of 'plant based"'!
I've always understood it to mean a whole food strict vegetarian diet, not out of ethical concerns but health.
From Dr. Furhmans "Eat to Live"; Esselstyns "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease", and Forks over Knives the term plant based has meant healthy vegan eating
Our local Plant Based Eaters meet up has more members than the vegetarian or vegan one!

Your husband "is not vegan or vegetarian, he's plant-based" not quite sure what you mean here, do you mean he eats mostly plant-based food, but isn't strict about it.

When you say you are vegan, have you mentioned to get already to a very strict veganism, e.g. you read the ingredients on packets and check every ingredient, you only buy vegan breads, beers etc. Or do you just mean you avoid meat and dairy and things obviously from an animal?


Hi Jamie, I'm not sure I understand your question about my husband, but I know the difference between being plant-based and vegan, which is why I made that distinction. I mean that I will only buy and prepare vegan foods and I do all the cooking and grocery shopping for my household. So my husband eats vegan at home, but because he does not accept it as a moral imperative and will sometimes eat a little cheese or sour cream at work dinners, he is not vegan.

I'm an ethical vegan. I want animal liberation to happen in our lifetime and that's why I became an activist shortly after going vegan. Our methods of protest are described as "too aggressive" by some vegans. Earthlings Experience, restaurant disruptions, etc.

It's why I maintained my vegan diet during pregnancy and am raising my kids to be vegan as well.

Yes, I know the definition of veganism and we do not buy leather, cosmetics or household items containing animal products or those that were tested on animals, visit zoos or aquariums, etc.

She said she's vegan, and knows other vegans... safe to assume she's aware what vegan means and does check for animal ingredients on food products.
There is only one definition of veganism.

Lurker comes out of the woodwork...

I lurk here on occasion, figured I'd start to join some discussions.

I've been vegan since August 2015. I was not vegetarian prior, just decided to go vegan right away as it seemed like the only coherent ethical decision.

I transitioned my son shortly after, he was nearly two at the time. I just delivered my second baby and I was vegan during the entire pregnancy.

I love cooking, sharing recipes and talking food. My husband is not vegan or vegetarian, he's plant-based and we all eat 100% vegan at home. I do know a lot of vegan IRL as I became an animal rights activist and have met many through that network.
