Why I’m Not ‘Vegan’
Eating a vegetarian/vegan diet over the past 5 years has been one of the most rewarding, informative, joyful and spiritual lifestyle shifts I have ever made..
The word “can’t” is not in my vocabulary. It is my understanding that veganism is an umbrella term which celebrates the daily practice of compassion, sustainability, health, and global/personal examination. It is a reference point for living a life that closely parallels these values. It is never about perfection or particulars, but incremental and exponential ripples of personal change for humanity.
The rewards of living consciously and collectively are not exclusive to any particular person and their dietary lifestyle. We all play an integral role in creating positive shifts on this planet, and all have different pieces of the pie where our gifts and strengths lie. If we were to break down all the boxes and labelling and look at the intention behind our actions... we would be left with love.
The world doesn’t need any more division... and labels are for cereal boxes. As I continue to live an open life, heart and mind, I will continue to evolve and update the language that reflects that. Rather than having to sometimes answer loaded questions or sarcastic remarks at some dinner party, I would rather focus my intention on human connection, inclusion, the abundance of the plant world and what is exciting at the given moment. We are not defined by our status, dietary choices, gender or which club we are part of – we are defined by our actions and the love in our hearts. Stay connected with me!

Updating my “vegan status” feels like a huge weight off of my shoulders. I hope that this message serves to help others identify with themselves and others in a more authentic way. From now on you can call me your “plant-based pal”... just don’t call me late for dinner.
