Vibrant Vegan Flavor
Veganism is a diet known more for its restriction than its excess, making people think that eating vegan food is extremely bland, boring and tasteless. Not true!
What is a Vegan?
Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs,dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar and some wines. Most vegans also avoid the use of all products tested on animals, as well as animal-derived non-food products, such as leather, fur and wool.
Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating, or to the diet itself.
What do Vegans Eat?
To many people, excluding the use of all animal products in their diet seems very restrictive. On the contrary, vegans eat a whole world of delicious, imaginative, healthy whole foods that most people eating a “Standard American Diet” don’t even know about! From the sweetest fruits to hearty vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and many other plant-based foods, vegans have a wide variety of choices and can achieve the utmost in health with their food choices.
