THE NEW VEGAN: RECIPE MUST-HAVES & MY GROCERY LIST!
Is This The New "Vegan"?
When Alexandra Jamieson, author ofVegan Cooking for DummiesandLiving Vegan for Dummies, decided to start eating animal products again, she hid grass-fed beef and eggs under bunches of kale in her co-op basket, fearful that someone would see her.
“I was in a war with myself because I’d been so emotionally and professionally invested in veganism,” Jamieson says. Her fears about what others would think were not unfounded. When she “came out” about her decision, she received angry emails, vicious comments, and threats.
Those who attacked her were the PETA-card carrying members of the animal product-eschewing world.
But within veganism, a new element is rising. More and more people are choosing to eat plant-centered diets for health reasons, and many don’t identify with the image that “vegan” tends to conjure up or with the inflexible rules that make less-than-perfect humans feel they need to smuggle home brie.
“The word ‘vegan’ has very negative connotations,” says Sarma Melngailis, the founder of One Lucky Duck and Pure Food and Wine, who initially went vegan for health and was later turned on to animal rights.
