The idea for Fatty Vegan was a collaborative idea in the early stages. My friends Frank and Chelsea who became vegan sometime after meeting me shared my love for eating good, while maintaining a vegan lifestyle. Chelsea is no longer vegan (downgraded to vegetarian status) and a collaborative effort in co-publishing with Frank is not going to work out. It was a fun idea, but I do not think it’s worth focusing my time on. Not to mention the complications of publishing ideas other people had a part in. Needless to say I can have my blog about my vegan endeavors without any worry or stress. The market for vegan compulsive eaters can’t be too big anyway. It’s hard enough to find someone to eat dinner with that isn’t going to say things like: “I would never eat that”, “how do you live without meat”, “I could never be vegan”, “that looks gross”. Even though the vegan diet is a healthier option, eating animal products puts you at a much higher risk for heart disease, and most people lack the self-control and compassion to even consider a vegan lifestyle; getting the message out to compulsive eaters ranks lower on my list than some other priorities. I will follow the winds of change and focus more energy on publishing something significant and important, rather than something I could do for fun on the side.
