What is a vegan?
The vegan society states that: veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
This means that meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, gelatine and other animal-derived products are off the table, replaced by products like plant milks, mock meats, wholegrains, legumes, beans and lots of fruit and veg.
What do vegans eat?
At first glance, vegan diets can seem pretty restrictive: no meat, no fish, no dairy, no eggs, no honey, no gelatine (the stuff that makes sweets gummy). However, with the rapidly expanding meat-free market and the countless other foods that are naturally vegan, there really is no need to feel like a vegan diet will hold you back. If anything, it could open your eyes to a new, fun, interesting and animal cruelty-free way of eating.
A list of vegan foods: fruit, vegetables, nuts, nut butters, legumes, hemp seed, flax seeds, chia seeds, tofu, processed meat substitutes, plant milks, dairy-free yogurt, seaweed, rice, bread, pasta, oats, and beans – to name a few!
