(名詞) 嚴格的素食主義者;高度熱心的素食主義者 (這些人士致力於使別人信仰或改信素食主義)。這個字是由 vegan 和 evangelical (福音派信徒) 拼綴而成。

Dynise Balcavage, 42, an associate creative director at an advertising agency and vegan who lives in Philadelphia, said she has been happily married to her omnivorous husband, John Gatti, 53, for seven years.

'We have this little dance we've choreographed in the kitchen,' she said. She prepares vegan meals and averts her eyes when he adds anchovies or cheese. And she does not show disapproval when he orders meat in a restaurant.

'I'm not a vegangelical,' she said. 'He's an adult and I respect his choices just as he respects mine.'
