Hi Jennie. I'm glad to know you've experienced all those benefits. Dr. Michael Klaper and Dr. Michael Greger do an amazing work!
I've been a mix of vegetarian/vegan for almost 5 years now and it was one of my best decisions ever. Initially I did it for the animals but then I started experiencing many health benefits.
At home I'm fully vegan, the problem is when I'm out and about, just like you said. Sometimes when there really isn't any vegan option I go for vegetarian options as it tends to be easier. I'm aware that people who tend to have a more radical approach would not agree with me, but I do my best and what works for me.
Don't worry about labels and to what makes you feel good!
