An important caveat to the term vegan.

My motivation here is primarily for heath. Perhaps, calling myself a dietary vegan would be more correct. Perhaps, even more precisely, a no lacto-ovo pescetarian would sum it up best.

Life is messy. We’re all taking bits and pieces of knowledge from everywhere and customizing beliefs for ourselves. I like to describe myself as a vegan who occasionally eats fish. It’s just easier that way. A vegan’s dietary restrictions more closely resemble my goals with one exception, fish.

I try not to take life nor veganism too seriously. A little compromise once in a while goes a long way. Balance is the key and my mantra throughout this blog.

To those strict vegans who might still take issue: this blog is not for you. I applaud your efforts and wish you the best.
