She makes us so proud but we feel restricting her too much will only cause retaliation. What she means is the exact definition of being vegan, which has become very watered down recently with plant base diets growing in popularity.
So yes technically speaking you can not be mostly vegan.
I, however, will educate them about where their food is coming from, how it is made, how it affects our bodies, the animals, and our planet.
These information were not given to me growing up which I know would have helped me.
I feel that I got deceived living the way I did before and would have made a compassionate choice earlier if I had known the truth. My daughter turned 4 months old on Friday and it has been so much fun reading your posts on Adriana – it is like a sneak peek into what lies in the weeks to come!
I think that is totally the right attitude, I feel EXACTLY the same way.
Sometimes I think it would be easier if my husband had the same diet, but not fair of me to change who he is! I cook 100% vegan food, but like you, at birthday parties and grandmas and grandpas etc.
We also learned early on that she was lactose intolerant (non vegan formula top up when my milk didn’t come in) so I wouldn’t want her to eat something she was allergic to just because she may have “grown” out of it, or just not showing obvious signs of allergy.
