Vegan/Vegetarian Mix


Vegan diets can be hard to fit into every day life. Especially when you don't want to make going to a family dinner, or out to eat difficult.

The main goal of this diet is to make all personal meals Vegan but all family meals vegetarian, with the goal of making 2-3 family meals a week vegan.

Not OK

 How To Follow Vegan/Vegetarian Mix:

Every meal you can make it a vegan one. However if vegan is not a choice you can go for a vegetarian option. However with family meals that you would normally make vegetarian, try and make at least 2-3 of them vegan to share with the family the yummy foods that being Vegan has to offer. You never know within no time your family might be okay with even more vegan meals.

My general outline I use for this diet is as follows:
All personal meals(e.g. Lunches, snakes) are vegan;
Dinners with the wife are 2-3 vegan 4-5 vegetarian;
Dinners with in-laws/friends vegetarian (vegan if an option)

Please think of your family when you do this, Guys that means don't make your wife learn to cook vegan. If you want a vegan dinner make it for your wife and yourself. Your wife will love Vegan food even more when you make her a home made Vegan meal!

About / History

I started this diet Aug 22 2012, after seeing Earthlings I could not go on eating meat, my wife and I had been talking about going Vegan but it would put a lot of stress on our social life. as with me having an allergy to red meat already caused some issues. So I made the choice to never eat meat again and to try and stop eating animal by-products. However with weekly family meals with the in-laws I didn't want to put any stress when it comes to cooking. So I decided to make all personal meals vegan and any family meal vegetarian, as no matter where we go their is always a vegetarian option.

ngille's top tips

1.A lot of restraints have vegan food, when you order a vegetarian meal, see what is included in it, many times the dairy products are removable.
2.Don't put stress on the fat you don't eat meat when with friends or family. Many times you will have a meatless option and no one will even notices you didn't eat any meat.
