You will not find anything that contains or involved an animal, fish, bird, reptile or poultry
or any living creature in any way, including their products, by-products, and so on. This includes
honey, dairy cheese and other products. I am using the strictest Vegan rules I can find as to what
constitutes a proper Vegan diet, without being "Raw Foodism only" or "Macrobiotic only", and so on.
All recipes in the other categories, that are Vegan, can be found here, as well.
If you find a recipe that is not strict Vegan that has been labeled as Vegan, please send me the link to the recipe and explain where the error is. I greatly appreciate it as I am unable to find all of my errors despite my best efforts. Thanks!
Why eat Vegan?
Even Free Range Animals or Birds go to the same slaughter houses and come into contact with all the germs from the other animals or birds. They are transported in cramp quarters where fecal matter accumulates. Why do you think poultry trucks stink so badly? Do you really want to eat that? I don't! Pigs are raised in cages where they are allowed to do their business on top of each other, stacked 6 high.
Why Turkey Free?
The argument about B12 is a silly one as we absorb less and less B12 as we age. Most people over the age of 50 benefit from B12 supplements, including those who religiously eat only Beef and Chicken three times a day, seven days a week!
Why do I mention reptiles and insects? Because not all countries consider these taboo to eat.
Macrobiotic Diet: Unprocessed Vegan food but allows the occasional consumption of Fish. I suggest the Vegan tab for this diet. However, it will be fish free. ;)
Vegans: Abstain from all animal, egg, dairy, animal by-products, reptiles, bird, fish and so on. Some, but not all vegans will even abstain from honey, because a bee was involved in its making, or abstain from any product that might have involved an animal in any way, shape or form, including some sugars and wines.
Raw Vegan or Raw Food Diet: Vegan but with a twist. Nothing is cooked over 107 F / 46 C. Some people won't cook anything over 104 F. Others, are fine with 135 F as the max temperature. Also, Kidney beans or anything that would be lethal ate raw, will not be found here. Raw Foodism does not include the eating of Peanuts and reframe from eating Soy as well. Raw Kidney beans will kill you, even after you soak and sprout them. Don't try it! Some Raw Foods eaters have been lucky. Just 5 raw Kidney beans, or improperly cooked Kidney beans can kill. Raw Vegan recipes will be created soon. I'll update this page with a link then.
Transitional Raw Foodism Diet: Suitable for those who wish to eat more Raw Foods but are not ready for a complete Raw Foods diet. Also, any recipe that may be questionable whether it really is Raw Foodism or not, will be found here as well.
