Vegan is what I have been calling myself when actually I am more nutritarian. I admire the moral commitment vegans have regarding animals. To call myself vegan, when I don't think eating animals is a transgression, is probably viewed as villainous amongst very virtuous vegans (how's that for alliteration?).
- Vegetarian - A person who eats no meat.
- Vegan - A person who eats no animal food.
- Nutritarian - A person who eats only foods rich in nutrients. .
Eventually I will include the occasional egg in my diet, and I might have a bit of ham this Easter, probably a deviled egg, and for sure a small slice of my 4 Day Coconut Cake (eggs, sour cream, oil, lots of sugar). Out of respect to vegans, I must change my title to Nutritarian. A person who eats only foods rich in nutrients. No room in the diet for less nutrient food (meat, dairy, eggs, fat, sugar, processed food).

The word "nutritarian" is not on my spell check.
I have finally settled on calling this style of eating "Plant Based" diet. I like that label best of all.
