The Lusty Vegan: What Are Your Top Tips for Vegan-On-Omni Relationships?

Hey, all. Bossaroo Ayinde and I are gearing up to announce a really exciting project. This project has been 2 years in the making! Before we unleash it, I am compiling some info to be featured in said soon-to-be-announced project, and I need help from you!

You, the readers, the backbone of this here website, and the people that inspire our team of writers and chefs to do what we do.

What I am asking of you awesome Lusty Vegans is any and all tips that you have found helpful in your relationship with an omnivore. For omnivores (do omnivores even read iEatGrass?) tell me what has been helpful in your relationship with a vegan.

If you want to help out (c’mon, you know you do) just leave your tip in the comment section, along with your first name–or a name you made up!–and your age.

Note that the best tips WILL be published, so if you want to remain anonymous and don’t feel like writing a funny nom de plume (Seymour Butts, 28), just write “anonymous.”
So, a basic example would be:

“Always keep separate pots and pans! – Jenny, vegan, 32.”
“Vegans like vegetables, so buy some to make yourself look good if they open the fridge.” – Garth, omnivore, 45.”
“Lots of eco-friendly vegan lube,” – anonymous, omnivore, 26.”

Thanks guys, I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    I’m vegan because I know it is wrong to use animals. While omni men can be charming, I see no use in dating them because our values are so different. I wouldn’t date someone who killed children, so why would I date someone who eats my dead animal friends?

  2. Morgan says:

    Be loving and respectful. And cook a lot! Morgan, vegan, 40.

  3. CiCi says:

    Separate pots & pans AND cutting boards. Or, at least label one side of cutting board as “vegan” and the other side as “what are you thinking?”. *giggle* (You get the idea.)

    I stopped cooking for my Omni, let him cook his own animal laden food..Charlene 52

  5. I am vegan and always open to dating omnivore. Romantic connections with people can be hard to find! I would not cook meat for someone I was dating, and I always keep in mind that Paul McCartney was not a vegetarian when he met Linda and now he is a well-known spokesperson for animal rights. And look at their daughter, Stella McCartney! Of course you never want to enter a relationship hoping the other person will change, but transformations happen everyday. Plus, an omni reducing their animal intake based on meals you cook together or veg restaurants you frequent is always a good thing! – Jenny, vegan, 32
