In this day and age, there are some people in life still unclear with the difference between being vegan and vegetarian. Although being attached to a title creates separation of some kind, it’s a simple way for people to understand why you choose the lifestyle you do.
So….. What is the difference between the two?
For starters, the vegan lifestyle is you not eating any animals or by-products of animals. This includes dairy, cheese, honey, and etc. You’ll also have tendencies to not to support or wear products such as wool, leathers, fur or etc. However, the alternatives may be expensive so you do the best you can because NO ONE IS PERFECT. The most important part is eating plant based in my opinion.
The vegetarian way of eating consist of eating plant based, but dairy and animal by-products are still consumed. Yes, that means honey, goat milk, dairy milk, dairy cheese, and etc. still counts as vegetarian.
How simple is the difference?
You’d be surprised how many people I meet when traveling claim to be “vegan” yet when you ask the right questions they later confess to eating fish, chicken, or beef once in a while……..
I may not be the sharpest knife in the draw; however that’s not VEGAN LOL. Whatever or however you live is your business, but be sure to keep it real with your moves because what set you claim has an impact in the world. The wrong person giving the bad impression of what the vegan lifestyle could mess it up for people about that life.
At the end of the day, what you eat is a reflection of you. What do you think?
