A person who has committed to a vegan diet, but occasionally eats meat and dairy products. It is typically a person who has no affiliation with animal rights organizations, but rather for their own health.
I consider myself a passive vegan in that my daily diet is vegan-based, but I will on occasion eat dairy and meat products. I have no affiliation with any animal rights organizations and do not do this out of any obligation to them or others, but rather chose this because I choose to live a healthier lifestyle, without feeling constrained in my food choices.
