I want to be honest with my terminology.
I feel that it is fair to my followers to let you all know that on my blog, I’m going to stop using the word “vegan” when it comes to my diet and my lifestyle. My reasons for wanting to avoid animal products are health reasons, and not ethical reasons (though I have sympathized with ethical veganism.) I am a lover of nutritional science, and my dietary preferences are specifically based on research by Esselstyn, Barnard, Campbell, Fuhrman, and other plant-based diet advocates.
It really won’t hurt my feelings if I get unfollowed by the dozens, because I know that most of you are interested in following vegan blogs. I want you to follow blogs that make you happy! I want to be honest with my terminology.
If you keep following me, these are the kinds of things I will post about:
If you’re not interested in following me based on this information, that is really okay - that’s kind of the reason I’m posting this. I don’t want you to feel tricked or confused!
