Quora Question: Why do vegetarians refuse to become vegan?
Too many vegans are militant about not eating animals. You can’t agitate and persuade at the same time.
I became a vegetarian in 1980, meaning I did not eat meat, but I did eat eggs, fish and dairy. This is where I got my protein along with beans and grains. 18 years later I discovered chlorella and spirulina, two types of algae and the most powerful foods on earth. They are 60% protein therefore once I found the perfect protein source I stopped eating fish, eggs and dairy since they were no longer necessary for a food source. At that point, the only reason I would eat them is for the taste.
Everything you put into your body, everything you eat, is exclusively psychological. It’s all in your mind. You eat the foods you like the taste of and are in the habit of eating. What belongs in the body from a health standpoint are raw fruits and vegetables. Period.
