While we are opposed to animal cruelty, our goal is to provide health to humans. Less cruelty is simply a side effect of eating more healthfully.
Also, some vegans class honey as an animal product, but we do not make this distinction. We do however avoid all products that are harmful to the body, including vinegar, mustard, stimulants (such as coffee and cocoa which contain caffeine), and excessive amounts of refined sugar. Additionally, we do not encourage the mixing of fruit and vegetables in a single meal.
