That is ok, German can be written without special characters. "ü" becomes "ue" and "ß" becomes "ss." So, "Grüße vom Krampus" is spelled out "Gruesse vom Krampus." Doesn't look as cool, but it is equally correct.
I think a lot of vegans fall into the trap of thinking that if they are avoiding animal products, they are automatically healthier. The truth is, veganism has a health spectrum. When done right, vegans can be very healthy, energetic, lean, and even muscular. But, to achieve this, it takes a lot of work. You really have to cook most of your own food and really pay attention to your nutrients. I was a high-carb, plant-based vegan (75-80% of my diet was carbs and almost none of it was processed) when I took a 3-month-long weight-training class a couple years ago. I was vegan for almost all of the course, and I doubled my strength and endurance, built some muscle, and dropped body fat. I am no longer vegan, but I know it can be healthy when you put the work in. Regardless, I can see your issue with accountability, since veganism is not very compatible with paleo (unless they are a paleo vegan, aka Pegan, but even that is a little more flexible with grains and legumes due to the lack of meat in their diet).
