Where do you draw the line?

I have been fighting with myself with this question. At what point in your veganism do you say enough? I try to buy as organic as possible to be sure that my food doesn't come into contact with animal products. I make my dad and brother use their own pots/ cooking utensils when cooking animal products. I refuse to buy animal products for anyone and I'm really not supportive of meat eating at all. I can't see myself ending up with a meat eater without me relentlessly trying to convert them.

I stear clear of anything with unwholesome ingredients (anything I can't pronounce, natural and artificial colors, dyes, etc). I avoid high fructose corn syrup like the plague. I have food purity issues though...

Anyway, at what point do you draw the vegan line?

Also, I freaking drive myself crazy with the food purity thing sometimes. I have to buy food all the time because I want it fresh without preservatives or any of the other crap they try to put in food. Does anyone else have this issue? I have a history of eating disorders, I'm hoping this isn't a manifestation of that....

Thats a huge one in the difficult realm.
All aside from my first gf have been at least veg.
I meet a girl, that I liked very much but was not vegan. She was interested and open minded.
We bought skinny bitch together in a bookstore, she decided to go vegan and has been for the past three weeks.
All on her own and for her health. Its refreshing to take a step back and ask questions as she proposes them!
I can't wait to she her in a few weeks and cook together!


Yay! It's refreshing for me to find ANYONE that lives near me that's at least vegetarian.
Best wishes to you and your lady friend, eric  :)


Why thank you!
I had a feeling we were going to be good the second I laid eyes on her.


aww, Eric, that's so cute!

and btw, what do you do w/ chicory? I've had it in tea, but other than that, I have no clue as to its use. Thanks!!


The chicory is mainly for the rabbit and gets into some salad from time to time.
Chicory, sunflower seeds and a jalapeno tahini dressing....
