I'm vegan, which means that I don't eat any animal-based products. No meat, no dairy, no eggs, no seafood, no poultry. As for why I'm vegan, I recommend reading Vegan Outreach, which discusses animal rights, your health, and the environment. If you want personal reasons...I used to be a vegetarian in my late teens/early 20s. I did it then, as now, for health, environmental and compassionate reasons. But...I didn't take care of my nutritional needs, and I backslid into omnivormism. Is that a word? Whatever. Suffice to say that I developed a dairy allergy and the ensuing health crap was enough to prod me back to what I should have been doing all along. The moral of the story is, take care of your body, whether you're a veg*n or an omni. And eat your veggies. If they're not tasty, you're not cooking them right. ;=P
