Veg•an (vee-guhn): A vegan is someone who doesn’t eat animal products: meat, fish, milk products, eggs, or honey. Many vegans also avoid fur, leather, and wool as these products generally result in the confinement, abuse, or slaughter of animals.
True that, my friends.
At the suggestion of web producer Dan Gibson, I am going to start writing “Being Vegan in Tucson” blogs here on The Range. I’d like to include things in the posts like restaurant reviews, recipes, accidental vegan goodies, etc.
Also ... if you’re a vegan, you’ve probably had to deal with a lot of conflicting answers about what is and what isn’t vegan. One person might tell you the rice at Taco Shop is cooked vegan, and others might not. I seek to put an end to these disputes, and write the answers to some of these burning questions here on the Range.
That said, if you have anything you’d like me to look into, please let me know!
Before I begin, however, I think it might be important for some of those readers with conflicting viewpoints. I attempted to write my own FAQ, but it ended up being rather long, so I found some other resources for you, which cover many of the most asked inquiries. You can check those out here and here.
If you have any other questions, or if you’d like to discuss the topic with me, I am more than willing to engage in some civil conversation about my dietary decisions.
