Or will I be detested by vegetarians, vegans and carnivores?

IME many vegans can take a bit of an all or nothing stance, but I do think I would miss avocado and egg on toast. What do people think?

Do what makes you happy-life us too short to worry about what other people think.

What the hell is a veggan, just a veggie who doesn't eat dairy?

Eat what you want, but adopting silly words is... silly.

What a “veggan”? Is it a typo or a new thing?

Janetjanetjanet Fri 15-Dec-17 21:07:49

Veggan?

what the what the feck?

You will be detested by all who hold the English language dear.

A veggan follows the principles of a vegan diet but eats eggs. Hence v’egg’an. Don’t bite my head off because you didn’t know what it meant wink

The English language is constantly changing, which I don’t need to tell you. New words are constantly coming into common lexis just as old ones fall out of use.

What is a veggan?

IMO Just eat what you want, why need to label everything?

Sugarnut Fri 15-Dec-17 21:09:11

I’ve never heard of a veggan?

(Apologies if that was as just a typo, not trying to be wanky)

Reallytired17 Fri 15-Dec-17 21:09:40

I’ve seen it used a fair bit.

StickThatInYourPipe Fri 15-Dec-17 21:09:57

Sorry cross post

My point however still stands

PurpleDaisies Fri 15-Dec-17 21:10:20

So you’d be a non-dairy eating vegetarian? No need for the daft term that you’ll have to explain every time you use it.

Bambamber Fri 15-Dec-17 21:10:22

Just eat what you want. Most people genuinely don't care what you eat

Lots of 'vegans' just do what they can (within a strict veggie concept) and don't sweat the small stuff. It's impossible to be 100% vegan in our culture anyway.

Do what works for you.

Not quite purple because there are animal products that are not meat but nor are they dairy - honey, for example.

The only exception is eggs.

SandAndSea Fri 15-Dec-17 21:11:42

PS you can get eggs from rescue hens which some people consider vegan.

Rhynswynd Fri 15-Dec-17 21:11:58

If you will still be eating eggs, make sure they are reliably sourced and the best quality possible. Otherwise it would be a waste of time and effort for a shitty caged Bird egg.

Fatso1978 Fri 15-Dec-17 21:12:39

Yeah. Another one here who has never heard of veggan before. What a stupid word anyway. Jesus, no one cares

StickThatInYourPipe Fri 15-Dec-17 21:13:08

I’m sure there’s more cruelty in egg production than honey tbh. What’s the point?

Killdora Fri 15-Dec-17 21:13:27

Oooooh I see grin

My elderly Dad get really quite grumpy with dsis saying she’s a ‘Flexitarian’.

In fact he specifically says, ‘It was called ‘eating what the feck you want’ in my day.’

Eat what you want op, pretty sure my ex bil is now a vegan, but he does eat eggs as he says they come from his own chickens so he knows they are happy (and something to do with he doesn’t take all the eggs and leaves some in I dunno)

twiney Fri 15-Dec-17 21:13:35

So if you're going to eat eggs, why not eat honey too?

MrsSquiggler Fri 15-Dec-17 21:13:56

Find some rescue chickens to source your eggs from. Or adopt some. Feel good about your happy egg consumption

From a fellow 'veggan'. But please don't call it that!

HolyShet Fri 15-Dec-17 21:14:00

How about everyone just eats what they want, doesn't call it anything special, but also doesn't judge anyone else's eating choices?

Janetjanetjanet Fri 15-Dec-17 21:14:05

It's an egg eating vegan.
