Vegan Overkill

As a vegan, I do a lot of vegan things. Being vegan is an intricate part of my life.

Don’t believe me?

Let me take you through a typical day in the life of a vegan.

Case in point: Me.

I like to wake up in the morning and drink my vegan corn tea. Then I lit some vegan incense and eat some vegan oatmeal with vegan strawberries on top. Of course, I have to have some vegan maple syrup too.

I work on writing some vegan articles for this great vegan website called (Vegans can go vote for my vegan articles by the way!). I cover topics ranging from booking a vegan cruise, finding a vegan winter coat, making a vegan soup, great vegan restaurants expanding and so much more vegan things!

I take a break at some point to eat some vegan chickpea curry with vegan basmati rice and vegan broccoli or other vegan deliciousness that I cook in my vegan kitchen. Of course my fridge is totally vegan! I’m a blessed vegan to not have to share it. (the joy of living alone)

At some point during the day I talk with my vegan boyfriend about the vegan food we ate and other vegan things. Blessed vegan, I know.

Then it gets around the time for me to go to work.

I step outside in the non-vegan world. I greet the non-vegan driver of the non-vegan bus I ride. I go pick-up the non-vegan kids at their non-vegan daycare and they eat their non-vegan snacks on the way home. I serve them their non-vegan dinner and give them a bath. I wash their hair with non-vegan shampoo. They eat their non-vegan dessert.

I leave eventually and walk on the non-vegan roads to get home. I might stop at the non-vegan grocery store on my way.

While I’m there I make sure I read the label on everything I might buy.

Vegan or non-vegan?

I go back in my safe vegan home.

I eat vegan salt and vinegar chips before I go to bed and I write a vegan post, much like this one.

Can you say vegan overkill?

  • This post was written in good humor so take what you want from it. I’m just a small vegan living in a big non-vegan world. The word vegan can seem like overkill sometimes but it makes a lot of us feel safer.

Can you relate at all?

What do you think of the use of the word vegan everywhere? Do you think it’s too much?

I don’t mean in this article but in general. 

I’d love to read your thoughts in the comments.
