It turns out that I've been using the #vegan term incorrectly for at least 33-years. Even though I haven't eaten any animal-derived products all this time, I should use #Vegetarian to describe my diet since I'm not a follower of Veganism and I'm not opposed to using leather boots. I don't believe that I'm contributing to the exploitation of animals by using this by-product. I would certainly use synthetic boots if there weren't enough meat-eaters to supply material for leather boots but as long as it's abundant, I'm going to keep using long-lasting boots.

I'll still use the vegan word at a restaurant to simplify the description of the food I'm seeking but as for everywhere else, I'm vegetarian to avoid confusion.

It's kind of like the #capitalism term - I don't want the appearance of an evil prick so I'll clearly state that I would appreciate #free-markets if they existed.

Communication can get so messy when people have different definitions for the words they are using (especially, when they don't know they have different definitions).

I have been eating the frozen protein crumbles that are made with pea protein and it is delicious. It's super fast to heat and add to a dish.

I don't think it tastes like animal meat (that's a good thing) but does taste like spices that are traditionally used with meat. I threw the last package away because there was obviously an accident that added too much spice - so much that it tasted and smells like Italian sausage smells.

I'm imagining internet vegans will likely start bashing Beyond Meat products now that a company associated with animal cruelty stands a chance to profit.

Top chicken producer pours money into plant-based meat

Tyson Foods is known for its chickens, nuggets, beef and pork, but it sounds like it doesn't consider mock meat makers to be its nemesis. In fact, it has poured money into Beyond Meat, enough to own five percent of the California-based company that creates chicken- and beef-like products using soy, peas and amaranth. The executive director of Plant Based Foods Association, Michele Simon, told The New York Times that this is the first time she's heard of a traditional meat producer investing in a company that makes protein alternatives.
