Question: What do vegans eat? Answer: Whatever they want!…If it comes from plants.

Veganism is often described as being too strict or extreme, but in reality I find it to be less of a hassle than eating S.A.D. (Standard American Diet). To me it is a diet of abundance where you can eat a variety of beautiful food.

My favorite way of eating a vegan diet leans toward the raw food or fruitarian diet, but I like to keep a balance and enjoy the warming comfort of cooked meals. I might have a day where all I eat are mono meals of just one type of high carb fruit. Usually the fruit is whatever is local and in season, or bananas because they are easy to find year-round. Other days I will eat a variety of food, both cooked and raw.

And, because one of my main goals is healthy weight loss, I try to keep the vegan junk food to a minimum. I’m a work in progress, and even though I know the salty snacks, high fat food, and array of vegan candies should be a no-no, I sometimes cannot help myself. Also, avoiding heavily processed food is a good idea, especially if you are trying to heal your body and become more vibrant in your life. One thing I'm not much a fan of is the processed products that are made to look and taste like their non-vegan counterparts, but they serve a good purpose for some.

Mono meals of fruit, Green Smoothies, extra large salads, and delicious plant-based recipes are among the ways I prefer to eat daily meals. The one thing I find difficult is making sure to eat enough to get the calories and nutrients needed for energy.

What Do Vegans Eat?

When asked “what do vegans eat?” I will answer, but still get questioned on whether or not cheese, fish, or seafood is okay to eat. Well, you are free to eat whatever you wish, but if you are interested in being a vegan, you will want to avoid those products.
