Anyone Vegan?

Is anyone else on here a Vegan?

Before I started riding I didn't use anything made of leather. I have found it impossible to avoid leather during riding though.

Me vegan! I 'do' cheese and dairy, and honey, but no meat tho.

I also do codura and neoprene. I'm tryin to find the link now for a Tack supply that has just about anything you need in the lastest colors in neoprene and synthetic. Be back with it.

I just got done reading "The Wine List for Vegan Eating." Very insightful.

I used to "do" the cheese and milk. Now I don't do any animal by products, except honey.

And if you find that link it would be much appreciated.

I'm an athlete, I cannot be because plants do not produce complete proteins.

Sorry, took a while to find the link again. I remembered I posted it on another forum back some time ago. It was 'biothane' was the synthetic I was tryin to remember. Here is the link.

Well, we are technically not strictly meat eaters as a species, so I am not sure if 'complete proteins' by whatever definition is necessary. I have been a vegan for 2 1/2years (and that was with being a vegetarian for about 4 years before that) and I am in perfect health. But I eat alot of protien, not alot of other junk. Alot of people think you just cut out meat, but you hafta replace it with beans and nuts and, if you like it, tofu is a good source. I DO have cheese, tho (not much milk, never been a big milk fan unless it had chocolate, and that is only because I love chocolate!) and I guess that helps with the protien thing too. But I am almost never sick (and I got 2 kids!) and have no real health problems. I am a bit of a clutz, tho, that is not the fault of the veganism......

I am bio vegan and my family is almost but eats dairy products and eggs. I think they would prefer it but as with shmurmer4, two of my children are athletes in intensive classical dance programs (5-6 days per week) and we do not have the variety of products available that you do the US. I have also found it impossible to avoid leather when riding. I haven't found a satisfactory alternative to a leather saddle that can handle some of the horsie activities we participate in. I had a neoprene and hated it. Besides, I hate to admit this, there is nothing like walking into the tack room and being greeted with the smell of all the equipment. We do try our best to be earth and animal friendly in most aspects of our life.

Ya know DC, I never ever THOUGHT beyond the food requirements!
This makes such sense! (Duh!!)
What's the difference between 'vegetarian' and 'vegan'? I honestly don't know! From the outside looking in...they are the same thing!

I don't think I could ever do that to myself .. I respect people that are vegans ..but I personally could never do it ..

I apolgize I didn't complete my thought, Plants do not contain all of the essential ammino acids that are necessary for muscle growth and performance.
