Vegetarian, pescatarian, carnivore, what is going on here? What’s the difference? And what about vegans? Aren’t they all the same? No. Vegans represent a stricter offshoot of vegetarians. Not only do they not eat anything that ever had a face, but they never eat anything that came from something that had a face, like eggs, gelatin, dairy and honey. And any time celebrities jump on the bandwagon, whichever one it is, you know it’s just gotta be the right thing to do.

The vegan lifestyle is a strict one, that’s for sure. And if you love meat but want to eat more natural, healthy, plant-based food, you can be sure it’s a commitment that can make you healthier, support animal rights and possibly help save the planet. You’ll succeed at making this lifestyle change by taking small steps and eliminating processed foods, meat, chicken, fish and other non-vegan foods until your diet consists solely of plant-based foods. Veganism runs hand in hand with animal rights activism and environmental activism, so whether you choose to support those programs in addition to adopting a vegan lifestyle is a moot point. Living vegan offers a ripple effect that extends far beyond you as a single person.
