On Going Vegan

Animal Person

First I have to say that my husband and I were in our courtyard last night, with wine, vegan pizza with shiitakes, portobellos and chanterelles (still working through that five-pound bag of Daiya cheese), and Diana Krall playing. But today's post is about World Vegan Day, so onward.

How to Plan a Vegan Wedding

The title of this post makes it sound like I actually have a clue as to how to plan a vegan wedding. Having my wedding here, as opposed to in my small hometown of 130 people, was partially because of my strong desire to make sure my wedding was vegan.

On Atheism and Veganism

Animal Person

For me, atheism and veganism go hand-in-hand. We, atheists and vegans, ask: What do we know to be true, and what are we going to do about it? And because of that, we know that the just thing to do is to act accordingly: to be vegans. Vegans usually have spent quite a bit of time exploring our relationship with nonhuman animals and making a conscious decision to go against the mainstream.

On Veganism and Adoption

Animal Person

I don't, for the record, consider this issue analogous to omnivores dating vegans, as my husband went vegan overnight three years ago this month. I do the shopping, cooking and baking, and I find vegan accessories for him to choose from. And this is where I think about veganism.

On Being Vegan "Friendly"

Animal Person

The Factual table I posted yesterday annoyed me a bit, and here's why: the categories "vegan," "vegetarian," and "vegan-friendly." Vegan: Got it. Vegan-friendly : I remember going to Morton's Steakhouse in Chicago a bunch of years ago with a client of my husband's and ordering a plain baked potato, grilled asparagus with lemon, and a salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. It was a fabulous vegan meal. So what does "vegan-friendly" really mean?

Here is a tragic story about misguided vegans. John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) famously said that "There is no difficulty in proving any ethical standard whatever to work ill if we suppose universal idiocy to be conjoined with it." ( Utilitarianism [1861], chap. The same could be said of any diet

Vegan Food & Adorable Wild Chickens in Hawaii

On the Vegan "Diet"

Animal Person

My dogs eat vegan dog food. To say they are vegans is odd to me, though I have done that as the distinction is lost on most people and for the sake of a swift message it does the job. When I first saw PCRM's " Kickstart Your Health With a Vegan Diet " campaign, I let out a bit of a sigh. At least they didn't say "vegan cleanse." Also, PCRM doesn't advocate for veganism per se , as veganism does in fact involve so much more than diet.

On Keeping "Vegan" Pure

Animal Person

Kelly wondered whether the term "vegan" is " worth fighting for " given the latest trend of seemingly oxymoronish (waiting for that one to hit Webster's) terminology from the mouths of people who want to find a way to use animals, yet make it appear that they're not. A while back I tweeted that Bittman's VB6 (Vegan Before 6) should be called CB6, or Conscience Before 6, but VB6 does describe what he's doing in a sense. Is vegan a diet ?

Newsweek Editor Goes Vegan

Did you see that Newsweek editor David Noonan went vegan (see " I Can't Believe I'm Still a Vegan ")? There's already a fairly large number of comments that raise the usual topics against vegans and veganism and I didn't see any Animal Person readers in there, though there's no law that says you have to use the same username everywhere so that might not be evidence of anything.

On Vegan Grenades

Animal Person

Well, I think the grenade metaphor also applies to conversion to veganism. There is often lag time between the critical mass event and its accompanying decision to go vegan--and the the actual doing: being a vegan. There's intention, then the becoming, then the vegan. I don't personally know anyone who read a book or a pamphlet one day, became a vegan the next, and is still a vegan.

On Mixing Bowl and Vegan Education

Animal Person

Though there are plenty of sites by and for vegans, I like this idea because it provides a built-in opportunity to convert people to veganism because you are side-by-side with them, so to speak, on the same site. Vegans seek out vegan sites, but a nonvegan looking for a chocolate cake recipe probably won't seek out a vegan site. What I have tried not to do over the past couple of years, with varying degrees of success, is focus my efforts on vegans.

Help Cristy Go Vegan

Animal Person

She knows going vegan is the right thing to do. She has said she wants to go vegan and knows it's the right thing to do, but she doesn't want to replace the problems she already has with new ones (she sort of has a handle on them now). Help Cristy go vegan. She's so close. She eats eggs for their protein. And sometimes cheese. She doesn't tolerate beans and already takes probiotics and digestive enzymes. She might be gluten intolerant.

On Taxes, Veganism and "Pets"

Animal Person

I've written about my ambivalence regarding "pet" ownership/guardianship/insert-whatever-term-you're-comfortable-with, and also about my strong belief in helping individuals, but I don't recall addressing whether the having of pets is not vegan. Someone wrote me and, though the person clearly was trolling to insult someone, s/he accused me of not being a vegan because of greyhounds Violet Rays and Charles Hobson Booger, III (no mention of Emily, which made me feel terribly neglectful).

Veganism is the "End Stage?"

Animal Person

I don't spend much time at Care2, and I'm never looking forward to going to a site when I know someone has insulted me, like yesterday, but I am curious about one thing that I've never heard before: " veganism is the end stage in terms of personal use of animals"/"veganism is just the end stage (for those who can do it) of a deep concern for animals." Here's what I don't understand: If veganism is the end, then doesn't that make me finished?

On Atheism and Veganism, Part Deux

Animal Person

" On Atheism and Veganism " created what was for the most part a respectful, interesting discussion that brought up a couple of items I'd like to clarify or explore. First off, I began the post with, "For me, atheism and veganism go hand-in-hand." I never stated a belief that atheism and veganism are actually connected in some way that many people are missing. I don't disagree with that, but I also don't advocate for atheism when I advocate for veganism.

For the Budding Vegan Author

Animal Person

Books are obvious opportunities for advocacy and vegan education. How successful they are at creating new vegans or animal rights advocates depends on many factors. . Is your market vegans? If what you're writing is about vegan education, the bulk of your market isn't vegans, and presenting statistics about the number of vegans in the US isn't all that helpful (but not useless, as some might buy it to give to others, but that happens with every book).

Sowing the Seeds of Veganism

I could be reading into this, but it does appear that there's some discomfort on the part of non-vegans when they look through the calendar and I tell them the story. Films are seeds (and Eric of I'm Vegan took a bit of a spill and when he's healed a bit more he'll get back to finishing up), blogs are seeds, vlogs are seeds, my recycled inner-tire rubber handbag is a seed.

On Talking With Veterinarians About Vegan Food

Animal Person

We have a request, and it's an issue I've written about a handful of times but never had this particular question answered by readers: How do you talk with your vet--who is against feeding your dog vegan food--about your choice to do so? I'm fortunate to have a regular (non-specialist) vet who has no problem at all with a vegan diet for dogs. I've never discussed that Emily the kitty eats one meal of Ami vegan kibble on most days (and one of canned, animal-based food).
