    What is a full and detailed description of a Vegan lifestyle?

    Anyone out there living a vegan lifestyle? I am very interested in creating new and original very healthy and balanced vegan recipes (even though I am not vegan myself). I have a fantastic vegan protein powder and I want to be able to put it to great use! I am very interested in this particular lifestyle and very willing and open to learn. Please help me in better understanding this interesting lifestyle. Please and thank you!

    A vegan lifestyle is simply one that does not use animal products in any way, shape or form.

    1.  Eating:  No meat of any kind or eggs, honey, dairy, or any food that has any animal product in it whatsoever - no matter how minimal.

    2.  Clothing:  No leather (shoes or otherwise).  All clothing must be animal-product- or cruelty-free.  This makes silk a no-no.  Silk comes the cocoons of the silk worm.  Usually, in order to harvest it, the silk worm cocoons are boiled killing the larvae.  There is a cruelty-free silk available; but, it is hard to find and quite expensive.

    3.  Personal Care Products:  Read all labels - animal by-products are used in a variety of personal beauty/skincare products.

    A vegan lifestyle requires some research because unless you know what those words on the labels mean, you may inadvertently be using a product that contains animal by-products.

      Awesome thank you. I never would have thought of honey as being an animal product, but that's why I asked! Thanks for pointing out those minimal details, very helpful.
