Vegetarianism vs. Veganism

The best way I would describe Vegetarianism is living a "Veganism" life. Let me explain (I am not an expert, I'm just an example). I've been Vegetarian for over 23 years. The only food that kept me from living a Vegan life was consuming "Cheese". One day, on Aug 23, 2011, I decided to live a complete Vegan life. Living a Vegetarian life for so long forced me to learn about Veganism so it was not difficult for me to transition.

But what defines living "Veganism"? After much research, I learned many products that we use in our everyday life contain animal products, such as shampoos, sugar, and silk. Many are obvious, just like the most interesting Non-Vegan product, Honey. As we know, honey is made from the transformation of nectar by the bee's process of regurgitation. Honey, classified Non-Vegan, is understandable. But here is my Theory on "Veganism": What about the flies, insects and other rodents that regurgitate or extract feces on our herbs, fruits and vegetables. Ok, we can rinse and scrub, but what about the dirt that contains fertilizer and extractions from other living entities. Yes, I am against fur, I do not consume ANY animal products, and I am obsessed with living Eco-friendly, but there is no way to live a complete Vegan life. As I live a "Vegan" life, I surely do not think that the produce I buy from markets, not at all, contain any animal particles? Of course, they do! Haven't you heard of E Coli findings? I grow my own herbs and vegetables but when you encounter poisonous toads, insects, and flies around your garden, it makes me think twice about the authenticity of Veganism. Even the air we breathe contains particles of living organisms.

In conclusion, Vegetarianism vs. Veganism, I think a Veganism life is unverified and an extremely difficult existence. I think a Vegetarianism life should be dedicated to living a life as what individuals think is a Veganism life. Vegetarianism should be defined and authenticated as living a Veganism Life!

My Husband Is NOT a Vegetarian


1 Lb of Turkey Sausage Link, Sliced in Rounds
1 Tspn of EVOO
Carrot Soup Ingredient (see SAVORY CARROT SOUP recipe)



Carrots are great in everything (salads, snacks, soups, etc.). They are high in antioxidants and beta carotene. When other vegetables are cooked or boiled, they tend to lose their vitamins. However, when carrots are cooked or boiled, the vitamins are even greater.

Prepare: Begin to heat a soup pot on medium to high heat and add the EVOO. Add the chopped onions and carrots and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add little salt and pepper to onions and carrots. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute. Add the 1 cup of White Wine and cook out the alcohol. When the alcohol is cooked out add the rest of the ingredients. Adjust the heat to low and let the SAVORY CARROT SOUP simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. To blend the soup, use a hand held immersion blender, a food processor or a blender. I recommend you invest in an Immersion Blender. Carefully blend the SAVORY CARROT SOUP until completely smooth. Place the blended SAVORY CARROT SOUP back into the pot and cook on low heat for another 8-10 minutes, stir occasionally. Serve and garnish the SAVORY CARROT SOUP with Cheddar Cheese or Sour Cream.
