The question of what do vegans eat is probably one of the most asked questions vegans get. While thinking of all the smartass remarks you could say back to that question in your head is fine, saying those remarks to a non-vegan probably isn’t the most effective way to convince them that veganism is something they want to be apart of. To answer the question of what vegan eat, I decided to take a picture of my fridge and freezer and to hopefully show that guess what? I don’t have stock in grass. I eat all the same things as meat-eaters, but choose cruelty-free alternatives instead.
*The orange juice that is shown in my fridge is actually not vegan (D3 is an ingredient, which comes from fish). I didn’t know this until a friend of mine (who is vegan) was over at my place and told me. I have now changed brands of orange juice. I was having a debate with myself over whether or not I should still do this blog post because I feared that people may say that I wasn’t vegan because of this small mistake. Instead, I’ve decided to post this picture in hopes of showing that veganism isn’t about every single ingredient. For me, veganism is doing my part to reduce the most amount of animal suffering possible. If you are thinking about becoming vegan, please don’t think veganism is about a bunch of rules.
What’s your comeback when people ask you what vegans eat (if you are vegan)? Let me know in the comments!
