What is a Vegan Diet?

What is a Vegan Diet?

What is a Vegan Diet? Vegans abstain from eating all animal products. This means no dairy, meat, or eggs for them! It's important to note that vegans avoid honey too- they only want plant based foods and nothing more. Some people choose this diet as an extension of their lifestyle choices while others do so because it may help with health problems. Is veganism right for you?

How is Vegan different from Vegetarian?

Vegan diets are strict against any animal products, like cheeses. Many vegetarians will still consume eggs or sometimes fish. However vegan's creativity has allowed them to create a variety of tasty and nutritious meals that can be healthy for your body! Knowing what you're eating is key in following the guidelines successfully though, so learning more about macros (protein, fat, carbs) on the Vegan diet might help too!
