Wow, you're trying to avoid refined sugar! Respect!

For me it's one where I just sod it. It is, after all, impossible to be truly vegan; all camera film uses animal bone gelatine (even if you don't take piccies I;'m sure you watch movies or buy newspapers that use it), who really knows what E numbers are, or the mysterious use of the word 'flavouring'? And organic veg is often fertilised with blood products and/or bonemeal. Then there's the alcohol issue....

The realisation that it's not a Religious Absolute and only a tendency can be helpful in stopping you from neurotically hairshirting yourself. It can also be the gateway of cop-out on the path to meat-eating.

Good luck with it aa23, be proud of yourself.
