Why Vegecagoan?

I am surrounded by omnivores, all lovely people who truly enjoy eating meat, eggs and dairy products. This blog is about making vegan choices in a society built for omnivores, so we can all coexist and live happily ever after.

I need to tell you upfront that I make mistakes far more often than I would like. Generally I do eat honey, and sometimes I eat food that I am pretty sure is vegan, if not 100% sure. If I find out later that something is not vegan, I will not eat it in the future. As this blog develops I will show you why I do not beat myself up about these things, and that being vegan (or vegetarian) does not have to be black and white if you do not want it to be.

However if you do have the mental energy to go totally amazingly vegan every hour of the day, I commend you. Personally I try to do my best and show others, even omnivores, that you can make vegan choices easily, helping yourself, our animal friends, and the environment. Everybody wins.

(A big shout out to Kate Johnston, the godmother of Vegecagoan, for coming up with the title of this blog!)

    So excited to stalk down beer companies about their gross ingredients. :)
