Ok, here's the story, I've always felt guilty when eating meat, thinking of the animal, so 6 yrs. ago I finally quit eating it and feel great about it! Shortly after becoming vegetarian, I tried becoming vegan but somehow I think it was too quickly and being uninformed it didn't work for me!..
Now we're living in Sicily for 3 years already and slowly over the past 2 years I've 'slipped' back into buying more dairy and eggs from the supermarket.., which we all know isn't the best to say the least!..
It's already a bit of a harder road here being vegetarian and some things (like tofu for ex.) are hard to find at all!
Over the past few days I've been re-reading more about the whole dairy/egg situation and really feel torn of what to do! On one hand I feel due to my beliefs I should really become 100% vegan and stick to it, no matter how hard! (Again, we're in the land of pasta & pizza!.. There's eggs and dairy involved everywhere!)
On the other hand I really don't know how it's going to work... At home I try to cook vegan 99% of the time, giving my family (omnis) the option to make it vegetarian...
Now this is where I'm asking you: If you've become vegetarian due to ethical reasons, how do you 'justify' that it's ok eating dairy & eggs still?
I'd really like to hear your opinions and hope we can all keep it civil!
