Top 5 FAQs about Veganism

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 help you derive maximum health benefits—and joy—from your new lifestyle. To 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.
