My name is Frank in English or Francisco in Spanish. Even though I am introducing myself as from Australia where Aussieland is. I am in Vietnam at present as I am traveling through South East Asia. I usually live in Brisbane but I left Australia to travel over a year ago. I love to receive massages but especially Thai massage and that is why I am here now to try to learn it! I am a yoga and meditation practitioner. I am a vegetarian and had been for many many years. I am almost a vegan but I love eating honey!!

Hi Francisco, welcome to our community! It sounds like you fit right in here. Smile

I am a vegan myself, and I also eat honey. I think that’s where it gets a little into hairsplitting. Confused

Hi Sharma, thanks for your welcoming reply. The thing is that by eating honey we are supporting the beekeepers who love and take care of the bees. I am referring to the ones who do not spray chemicals or insecticides where the bees polinate and do not use heat or any harmful products to extract the honey. They also look after their bees as if they were part of their family.

These people are the ones who usually sell their products in markets directly to the public so you can ask questions, and are not involved with corporations or multinational companies that exploit these beautiful beings (bees).  Besides all that, honey is the most nutrient packed food there is which is taken by the blood directly to the different organs in the body that need it once you swallow it, it doesn’t even get to the stomach!!! I know I am writing quite a long reply but there will be a few people who will read it. So I hope this will answer some of their questions why some of us are not completely vegan. There are also some worthwhile documentaries to watch that will open people’s eyes and mouth to how tremendously important is to support these amazing bees. One that comes to mind is titled “The Queen of the Sun”. What a most appropriate title, don’t you think??

I never had an issue with honey. I guess I am not a fanatical vegan. I do have a grandson who is a very fanatical vegan and he doesn’t eat honey. But I like honey. And I can’t see what would be wrong with eating it. Smile
