We are just as strict, if not moreso, about our food choices as we were when we were Vegan and Veg.
We don't eat any non-organic animal products. When we eat at restaurants we typically eat vegan or macro. Dd eats the same as us. I will never be cool with her eating processed foods. That includes all processed foods to a certain degree.
We are really committed to eating from scratch and that includes when we eat out. Rarely do we eat at chain restaurants, opting for locally owned and operated places that support local growers and offer organic choices.
When we eat at people's houses we try to eat as simply as we can. We potluck a lot, even with family. Plus our friends and family prepare simple foods and we are lucky enough to have people around us who eat very much the same and are committed to organics as we are.
If someone has a really different food philosophy and/or eats really differently from us then we focus on having time with them that doesn't involve eating a meal together.
I try not to get overwhelmed by the prospect of eating away from home and away from our comfort zone. There are certain things I can't comprise on. Non-organic animal products, white sugar products, store bought condiments and processed foods, foods with trans-fats, etc. But if someone has prepared a meal from scratch such as veggie chilli, I am not going to worry about whether they soaked the beans or not since I can digest them without distress either way, soaked or not.
I hope this helps a little! I kind of went on a tangent!!
In a nutshell, the concerns that I had for the environment while I was eating within a vegan diet have not changed. If anything they have amblified and become more dynamic. What finally got me to eat meat, other than fish was my experience last Christmas. My dh and I had been eating fish for about 5 years. My folks wanted to make us Christmas dinner and bought a wild salmon since we are opposed to farmed. I was surprised they could find wild salmon in our land locked province at christmas time and they said it was from China.
I thought to myself, what is more sustainable... A fish shipped from China or a pasture raised turkey that is ethically butchered to which I will make stock and create several meals from. That is raised and butchered 90 minutes from where I live and that lives an organic life on farm roaming free.
We had turkey that year!!
