Can you cheat and still be considered a vegetarian??

17 Jul

I was listening to a Jared Leto interview on the Ryan Seacrest radio show the other day where he was discussing his diet/lifestyle.  And I found it interesting he described himself as a “Chegan” – “I’m a Vegan most of the time, until I cheat”, he said.  You can listen to the whole interview here…

Interview Jared Leto

Interview Jared Leto - Ryan Seacrest

Jared expressed he is a vegan…  he’s been one for 22 years.  But once in a while, maybe something catches his eye and he just needs to get a taste.  Nooo, he doesn’t cheat with a piece of steak, but sometimes he will allow himself to eat a piece of cake or some other treat he knows probably was made with some sort of dairy, butter, eggs or other product that does not fall under the vegan banner.

Jared Leto - 2014 Academy Awards

Now that Academy-award winner Mr. Leto was selected by PETA as the sexiest vegan for 2014, can he still be considered a vegan if he cheats on occasion??  This is a question I have posed myself too…

Is cheating on your vegetarian lifestyle like cheating on your marriage??  Once you decide to become married, cheating is strictly forbidden.  Or is cheating on your vegetarian lifestyle something permissible and accepted by the vegetarian himself and those around him/her?

I think it’s OK… depending on why, how often and what you cheat with.

What’s your take??
