Question: Raw Vegan Matters Fans and Fellow Plant Foodist – Does Meat Offend You?

What Is Your Tolerance Level When It Comes To The “Meat” Conversation?

I posted this post – Vegetarian’s Respond to Arby’s Letter – to this blog a while back. Arby’s letter called for all vegetarian’s who need support to resist Arby’s “delicious, sizzling, tempting” Brown Sugar Bacon sandwiches to give their support hotline a call.

Most of you voted in our poll that asked if this offended you or not saying that Arby’s letter was offensive or confused you as to why they would even market such a message.

I posted a post – Why I Eat the Same Thing Every Single Day – to this blog recently. I used this image and some of you were offended just at the site of “salmon” being pictured on our site and the message of the post not specifically promote veganism.




As currently the admin of, I have a question for you.

Does meat offend you?

At RawVeganMatters, we post “messages (that we think) matter” to raw, vegan, vegetarian and fruitarians.

This may call for images of meat and messages that talks about meat because from our perspective, if you don’t eat meat, you probably have loved ones who do and they do matter to you.

Remember … “all” things that matter.

So meat does get talked about on our site.

If your loved ones are not converted to your plant-based diet, then we hope our posts about meat can give you some insights that you can pass on to them when it comes to their health decisions as they relate to meat especially if they are transition.

The bridge you may be able to offer them may be that support to give them the will power to complete that transition.

Another thought is that some vegetarians have finished their transition and decided on being a pesco-vegetarian – eat fish occasionally. Do you accept them into your plant-based food family?
