I’ve been a vegetarian for about 7 or 8 years and a vegan for the past 4 or 5. My wife was also vegetarian and my daughter was raised that way as well. I try not to fight over specifics of my daughter’s plant based diet, even though I wanted her to be raised vegan, I thought if I let go she would most likely side with it later on when she can see deeper into that lifestyle and make her own decisions. Several months ago my wife incorporated eggs into her diet, I thought it was just baking, but then found out they were eating eggs every morning (her and my daughter) That was rough for me but I gave it time and tried to be less controlling once again. My daughter(3.5 years old) has more recently been refusing to eat the eggs. I could take this post a lot deeper and detailed but just want to list the basics. My wife thinks it’s healthier for her(and our daughter) if they start eating more of the ‘humane’ type non-vegan food. Organic, free-range, no hormones, etc etc.. I tell her, and pardon my frankness, it all comes out as brown poop – the body knows what to do with any food source. She’s really worried I’m going to leave our family or divorce her (I can be a little unreasonable at times) I’m just feeling a little lost and just shocked that I never thought it would come to this. She was a big advocate for plant based diet when we first started dating. She immediately started eating vegetarian with me and even saw herself as a mucous-less diet eater down the road (fruits, nuts, vegetables) In the end we had a bit of an argument about it yesterday. She said she just wants to be able to enjoy her food since she doesn’t have such a large taste pallet like me, she doesn’t like a lot of stuff and wants to make sure she’s doing what’s right for her. I said I never thought being vegan was going to be easy or is for everyone but for me it was necessary and I had always thought that was her path as well. She mentioned I probably wouldn’t have married her had she not been at least vegetarian at which I had no comment. Oh, and a book is in the process of being written. I want to help others in this situation as I know first hand how hard it can be. I come from a family of hunters and weight lifters. The comments and prods at my diet never end. I will admit I’m not your normal vegan as well. I am accompanying an old friend on his mountain goat hunt this fall. I will be filming this ‘once in a life time hunt’ for him as well as more of a documentary for my own intentions. I want to use it to extend an olive branch to the vegan haters out there. I know it sounds crazy for me to be doing this but I don’t believe in coincidences and the way this all happened just makes sense to me. And it probably won’t to most vegans until they see it on film. Please let me know if I’m out of line or offending anyone here. I come in peace.
