I've been vegan for a long time. The better part of two years and it's been great, but I'm now going back to being a vegetarian. While being a vegan was wonderful it just doesn't fit in with my lifestyle right now. It's just a little too strict to be worrying about what I'm going to eat when I'm taking care of a newborn. I'll never eat meat again (meat is murder) and I won't drink straight cow's milk or eat eggs (bleh), but I will eat things that are made with those ingredients (cakes, cream sauces, etc) on occasion. More or less only when I'm ordering out or going out to eat. At home it's much easier to prepare vegan meals. Last night I had pizza with cheese for the first time in a long time and I have to say that it was really yummy!
