Basics of Vegan Lifestyle

A vegan is someone who strives to live more compassionately and eliminate cruelty to animals by choosing to consume whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and other plant-based alternatives over meat, dairy, eggs, and other animal products. Vegans also seek to avoid all forms of animal exploitation for food, clothing or any other purpose, and as a result,promote the development and use of cruelty-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment.

Here are a few basics for vegan lifestyle :

  • Stop going to hunts, seawards, circus, zoos, animal fights, animal races.
  • Don’t buy clothes with leather, suede, silk, fur, wool, skin, angora, pashmina, cashmere, fleece, down, shearling, hair.
  • Educate yourself in nutrition, make sure that you’ll have enough of every essential mineral and vitamin.
  • Once a week skip all the meat for one day. Have your own meatless days.
  • Find support in friends, family, bloggers, Facebook groups, find any support you can get.
  • Take it one step further and stop eating meat for good.
  • Find some inspiration and add more vegan dishes to your meal plan.

  1. That’s who I need in my life, a vegan.

    Since for whatever reason, I am losing my meat cravings and taste for meat.

    I guess the more I am viewing and living around healthy people online their lifestyles are rubbing off on me through the screen without any genuine desire for it.

    Meaning I didn’t decide hey I don’t like meat anymore or I will try to stop eating meat, other meats just stopped tasting good except the odd bunch.

    While my cravings for other foods increased.

    • In addition to dairy-free milk and yogurt, you can find non-dairy options in nearly every section of the supermarket these days, from ice creams made with nut or coconut milks, to cheesy dips made from cashews, and ricotta made from almonds. While they may not all be stellar health foods, these products can help you stay on a dairy-free track. That can be key for ensuring that problematic symptoms don’t return if you suffer from a dairy allergy or sensitivity. That said, it’s important to make whole foods your foundation, including plenty of vegetables, lean proteins, healthful fats, and nutrient-rich whole grains and starchy veggies. Think of dairy-free ice cream and nacho cheese as treats. Hope this helps.

  2. I went pescatarian for 6 weeks at the beginning of the year and so slowly aiming to reduce meat consumption. But Veganism is (as I see it) a mindset change to how we conduct ourselves each and every day in our lifestyle. Not just the food.

    • Ah bang on the mindset. As vegans, we have a sensitivity to the life of not just humans but animals as well. We can appreciate that they are thinking, reactionary beings who can communicate, build relationships, be parents, and show a will to live. We understand sometimes we need to utilize animals for our personal needs such as moments of starvation or warmth. We also understand that in the 21st century, eating animals and wearing their skin, especially in places like America, is completely unnecessary. You are arguably healthier if you avoid consuming animal products. As far as staying warm and clothing ourselves, there is cotton, polyester, and other synesthetic fabrics that don’t require the need of animals. Therefore, our positions as vegans is this – the use of animal flesh is completely unnecessary for the western way of life because of all of the available alternatives.

  3. I amaze how people enjoy eating meat which comes by killing an animal. When I see young ones eating meat I feel terrible. The reason behind more and more people eating meat nowadays is the misconception that eating non-vegetarian food makes you physically stronger while vegetables don’t make you stronger.
