Order Vegan Vittles
"What Is Veganism," by Jo Stepaniak
Simply stated, veganism is the conviction and practice
of compassionate living... By definition, a vegetarian
is one whose diet consists of vegetables, fruits, grains,
beans, nuts and sometimes animal products such as eggs,
milk or cheese. A total vegetarian is someone who lives
solely on the products of the plant kingdom without
the addition of eggs or dairy products.
The term "vegetarian" refers only to what
one eats and does not pertain to any other aspect of
one's life. The impetus for becoming a vegetarian may
be based on ethical, religious, health, environmental,
or economic concerns, or any combination of these. The
motivation for becoming vegan, however, is fundamentally
rooted in a compelling set of ethical beliefs. Both
total vegetarians and vegans abstain from eating all
meat, fish or fowl, as well as any other foods of animal
origin such as butter, milk, yogurt, honey, eggs, gelatin,
or lard, and any prepared foods containing these ingredients.
But veganism encompasses far more than just diet...
