Quit being vegan (temporarily), only if the random person in question vows never to eat or harm another animal. Else saving them would mean them indirectly killing more animals, so in a way their death would save animals. So to summarise i would temporarily stop being vegan to save a life, only if that saved life doesn’t result in more loss of life!

Yes (only if it doesn’t affect their health)

Yes.
I believe the word "force" is not right here, and instead, we should use the word "educate". Forcing any philosophies or beliefs on to someone is not the way forward for them to differentiate between right and wrong. Veganism is an ethical belief that states that as far as is possible and practicable, we should eliminate all forms of cruelty and exploitation to animals with regards to consumption, production and any other purpose. This moral philosophy makes complete sense, and so once you educate your children on this, there should be no reason for them to disagree with it.

What if it was one of your family and they continued to eat meat?

I would eat carrot and cucumber sticks with homemade hummus. It is really nice! In my case, all of the ingredients I use would be organic, in order to minimise the amount of damage done, as far as is possible and practicable, to the insects and microorganisms in the soil when using plant agriculture.

A common misconception is that vegans miss out on a lot of vitamins and minerals. In fact, that cannot be further from the truth. Yes, B12 is mainly found in animals, but you can also find it in plant alternatives too. It is the same with omega 3, as you only need 25g of chia seeds a day to meet your omega 3 target (according to Cronometer). I take a multivitamin supplement and a calcium supplement. The ones I take are all organic and vegan, and it only costs £11 a week (once you calculate the cost of each serving and then multiply it by however many servings you have in a week).

Why are you so concerned with not eating meat when the fact is we are not herbivores?

Everyone chooses their own path in life. I am not there to dictate how other people live their lives. If people want to know why I am vegan I explain to them why, but i’m not one of those pushy militant vegans.

What are some easy meals you like to cook? I've recently had to go vegan (been veggie for years but have developed lactose intolerance). I eat a lot of curries but need inspiration for other meals!!
