Bad Vegan?

Vegan junk food
I'm not a Vegan, or Vegetarian, but I have been on a strict vegetarian, non-dairy diet for nearly a year ... although come Christmas day I plan on breaking that diet to eat heaps of prawns.
It's been a big learning curve for me learning how to stay healthy on this kind of diet, even though I have been eating eggs, which helps.
Thanks to the gals at the 'Vegetarian Zen' podcast I've learnt a lot about healthy eating.
I even learnt a lot about unhealthy eating, like Oreos being a vegan food option.
I rarely eat Oreos, but I was in a shop yesterday and saw a cup full on Mini-Oreos and decided to buy them for a naughty snack.
Reading the ingredients label though I thought maybe these things should be named 'Cup of Crap'.
That's enough Oreos for a long while for me I think.
And while I sympathize with people who call themselves Vegans and care about animal welfare I could never really see myself becoming a vegan, even though I currently eat a ton of vegan food and support big sections of the vegan food and restaurant industries.
And I get why Vegans have a bad reputation with meat-eaters and even Vegetarians.
Why do vegans have such bad reputations?
Reading articles like the one above, it becomes clear why.
Those kind of tactics won't win many converts to the cause I think, which is why I like podcast shows like 'Vegetarian Zen'.
They help bring change to society without being preachy dickheads about it, like a lot of militant pain in the ass Vegans who just make people more defensive about their meat eating choices.

Bon app├ętit and as the gals at Veg Zen say, "peace out".
