Vegan Guide - Starters Edition

Updated on September 6, 2016

What is Veganism?

Veganism is a lifestyle which abstains from the use of animal products, this includes milk, egg, honey, animal meat etc... Some people are dietary vegans, which means they can still use/buy leather, wool, feathers etc...

This may sound scary and sound like hard work, by cancelling out a lot of food but there are loads of substitutions for these foods:

milk -> soy milk, oat milk, coconut milk and rice milk.

Eggs -> Flax seed + water or banana (you can use these substitutes when baking)

Animal meat -> Soy products (soy products contain a lot of protein) e.g. brand: Quorn

How did i become vegan?

I became vegan by watching that video below... so simple, that's all it took. It totally opened my mind and made me look at animals in a different way.

If you need some inspiration to becoming to vegan or even slightly thinking about it, you need to watch 'Cowspiracy' you can find it on Netflix and click the video above to watch 'The Best Vegan Speech Ever'
