What you eat - rather than what you wear - is what defines you as a vegan or vegetarian but most vegetarians - and particularly vegans - naturally prefer not to wear leather. However, there are many different reasons why people choose a vegetarian lifestyle so whether you should wear leather is, of course, a personal choice. Alternatives to leather are much more widely available than in the past although you will probably find that you will do better shopping online. Vegan Essentials have probably the best selection on the web.
This website is about the love of food and cooking. We are not preaching vegetarianism or vegan vs vegetarian. The choices you make about your overall diet are, of course, yours.
Some vegetarians are stricter than others so avoid any of these foods at your own discretion!I know many of you are not vegetarians at all. It's your business if you have steak for lunch but if you decide to go veggie for dinner, that's great! And if we can help you on the road to vegetarianism, better still!
