Whether you’re planning to go vegan or are simply curious
about what a vegan diet entails, the following frequently asked questions will
give you a quick insight into this worldwide movement based on abolishing
animal cruelty.
What is a vegan diet?

A vegan diet is one which does not include any food that
directly or indirectly comes from animals. A person who adopts a vegan diet
avoid eating things of animal origin, such as meat, eggs, seafood, milk,
yogurt, cheese, butter, other dairy products, honey, and any other food that is
not plant-based.
In its early days, veganism was only concerned with dietary
choices. With time, it has turned into a full-fledged movement that shuns all
items made with animal ingredients, such as shoes, bags, cosmetics, personal
care products, clothing, and medication. Vegans across the world also strongly
oppose practices such as animal testing, factory farming, and animal slaughter.

What are the common
vegan foods that are easily available?

With the vegan movement catching up, vegan foods are now
more readily available than ever. You can eat all plant-derived foods, such as
fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, flaxseed, chia seeds, meat substitutes such
as tofu, Seitan and tempeh, plant milk fortified with calcium, vitamin D and
vitamin B12, seaweed, yogurts made from plant milk, sprouted plant foods,
cereals, whole grains, and fermented plant foods.

Can a vegan diet
provide complete nutrition?

This depends on what you include in
your vegan diet. If your diet contains adequate sources of carbs, protein,
vitamins, and minerals, you have no reason to worry. Meat and eggs are high in
protein. When you switch to veganism, pick vegan meat alternatives that are
rich sources of protein. The same goes for other essential nutrients.

Making the right food choices will

fortify your health, support your diet with vegan supplements. Learn how to choose vegan probiotics from someone who’s been living
a happy and healthy vegan life for years.

Will I have to give
up my favorite foods to go vegan?

No. As a vegan, you don’t need to give
up on the foods you love—simply change some of the ingredients. As a vegan, you
can continue to eat pizza, pasta, lasagna, cakes, pancakes, tacos, curries,
noodles, and any other food or cuisine you love eating. All you need is to
switch to vegan ingredients when making these dishes. The good news is that
many restaurants now offer vegan menus.
How can I determine
if a food item is truly vegan?

If you’re trying to go vegan, you can do it gradually so as
not to stress your body systems with a sudden change in your diet. If buying
packaged food, read the ingredients to know if the product contains anything
derived from animals. As a new vegan, you may not know all of the ingredients
that could come from animals, but about an hour of learning and reading about
veganism will equip you with vital information to help your transformation.
