I was a vegan 20 years ago, then became complacent. I have recently converted back again and find it is so much better than it was then. There are so many new foods on the vegan/vegetarian market to try. However I'm not sure what to class myself as, as I still eat salmon and some cheese, though I didn't know until I found out in this forum last night about rennett in cheese . So can anyone tell me where I can get cruelty free cheese, and as I eat salmon,what do I class myself as?.I love VERY tasty cheese and havarti. I'm nearly 40 now and find it refreshing to see so many young people on here, rallying for rights for our animal friends.

Unfortunately you're not vegetarian nor vegan. If you only eat salmon, and no other non-sea food meats, you can class yourself as pescetarian.

What you call yourself isn't as important as what you do. I wouldn't worry about classifying yourself. It might be to your benefit that people won't pigeon-hole you into a stereotype when trying to discuss an important animal-related issue.

cheezly have a great variety and taste so good... the vegan cheeses without soy are the best because they melt

If you eat fish you are a meat eater. Case closed.

Ok, so on going on further investigations today, I AM pescetarian. I would like to quit ALL dairy, so would love to know what vegan cheeses are available, and where to buy them from. Just to clarify, I was a complete vegan 20 years ago, but due to an eating dissorder, recently recovered from, became complacent. I don't really eat eggs, but am getting a few rescue battery farm chooks in a couple of weeks to give them a better life. I will sell the eggs only to cover the cost of feeding them as I am on a disability pension. To the people judging me on eating salmon,, (that's the only meat I eat), I believe, as my daughter says, any reduction is a good reduction.

Exactly! However,  I don't think it's about judging you for consuming salmon, in the end it's up to you, your decision etc. Have you seen earthlings? I think giving that a watch might be good for your opinion on this topic, and might assist you in gaining a bit of understanding as to how people can become distressed when people choose to be pescetarian rather than vegetarian or vegan. I'd recommend that documentary to anyone, regardless of their opinion. peace

I watched Earthlings a couple of months ago, but could only handle half of it before tuning it off after watching animals being skinned alive. To say it was horrific is  gross understatement.Perhaps I will be able to watch the rest one day. I also posted it on facebook, and got not ONE reply. People simply dont.want to know where their clothes and food come from. I also posted, yesterday, a few facts and links on dairy farming. I am 39 and have osteoporosis, also due to an eating dissorder, but I'm sure milk played a part as well. Again, no reply from my friends and family. They dont want to know. I think this forum is a great way for getting information out there to the public.
