What Do Vegans Eat?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Maybe you've been interested in the vegan lifestyle but haven't actually taken action to become one. The first question anyone interested in vegans ever asks themselves is, "What do vegans eat?" As simple as it sounds quite a few people ask this question. I want you to understand the best answer to it by opening your eyees to how the vegan consumption works. I'll go over what misconceptions comes with vegans, why replacing certain foods is a constant adventure, and how important certain nutrients are that need to be part of the vegan diet. So what do vegans eat anyway?

The Misconception

Tell me, what is the first thing that comes in your head when someone just asks you, "What do vegans eat?" From what I've noticed, the most popular answers were, "Only vegetables" and, "Salad". When it comes to the majority of restaurants, the only vegan dish on the menu is, of course, salad. Unless the vegan went to a straight up vegan restaurant, then they would have no choice but to order salad. As a vegan I can tell you now that the only salad I have in my house is for our pet rabbit, Dizzy.

Replacement is a Daily Adventure

Okay, so if it's not salad then what do vegans eat really? To first understand what vegans can eat you must first understand what vegans can't eat and that is absolutely any animal product. The main three are meat(obviously), eggs, and milk. Eggs and milk are ingredients of practically any meal you can think of. Replacing these animal products is key to having more than just salad every meal. Being a master chef isn't necessary to replace those ingredients. Luckily many companies have specific food replacement products that are out in most grocery stores.

The Magic of Tofu

Nothing comes close to meat-replacement than tofu. If it is seasoned and cooked just right, you may not even notice the difference. Due to our love for animals, some vegans stray from eating meals with meat ingredients even if it can be replaced. Tofu, however, is definitely another answer to, "What do vegans eat?" There are recipes, even cookbooks out there about nothing but tofu. I've had delicious tofu flan since flan contains eggs and milk originally and I went bonkers over it before I became vegan. It may look weird, but it can be magically delicious.

Important Vegan Essentials

If you are still interested in becoming a vegan then you must consider adding a few certain nutrients in your diet everyday. Another answer to, "What do vegans eat?" are protein, vitamin B12, Omega3, Iodine, and Iron. There aren't many fruits and vegetables that give enough protein so keep those nuts and beans handy. Vitamin B12 comes from bacteria but can be found in fortified foods. Use flax seed oil for Omega3. If you like sushi then you'll get plenty of Iodine from the seaweed. Vitamin C Enhances Iron absorption so have a glass of OJ next to your iron-enriched cereal.

Be Vegan!

Becoming a vegan doesn't mean suffering through a raw tofu topped salad each meal. With the right kind of replacements, each dish can be as good and healthier than the old recipe. Just remember to add important nutrients to your meal as often as possible. I hope the next time someone asks, "What do vegans eat?" you tell them more than just salad.
