When you think of a vegan and what they eat, what pops into your mind?

Do you think of a person who wears a potato sack, with long unkempt hair, hugging trees all day?  Or do you think of someone who only eats raw onions and grass at every meal?  Although there may be some people who possess the aforementioned traits and identify as vegan, there are a ton of misconceptions about what a vegan really is.  Whether you have witnessed a recent change in a close family member or friend, or out of just plain curiosity, your mind may be wondering about all things vegan.  What do vegans eat?  What does a vegan lifestyle entail?  Well, you’ve come to the right plan to receive some golden nuggets of information.

A vegan is a person who makes the choice to abstain from consuming or using animal products. Some people are born into a vegan family and continue the lifestyle as they age.  Others make the huge lifestyle change in adulthood.  Becoming a vegan can be a very enlightening time in one’s life.  Although it may seem as though food options become limited, there is a whole new world of foods to explore.  There is a plethora of new things to try to help create healthy food options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.   Contrary to popular belief, vegan meals don’t always require a ton of time and preparation to make.  A healthy vegan lunch can contain a fruit, veggie, and a quick pasta for the road.  Vegan meals can be as simple or as intricate as you like.  With the wave of vegan restaurants and more vegan options available at existing restaurants, eating on the go is easier than ever.  The world is becoming a much more vegan friendly place!  It has never been so easy to live the vegan lifestyle.

The discussion of snacking is in a world all its own. The idea of snack options for vegans can cause a bit of confusion.  Everyone loves a good snack and vegans are no exception. For new and aspiring vegans, the question may remain; are there any vegan snacks to buy that are made for convenience and taste?  The answer is yes and yes!  There are so many choices for vegan treats and snacks to tickle your taste buds.  There is so much variety in choices for vegans to choose from no matter what kind of snacks you prefer, chances are there are vegan products to suit your needs.  The amazing thing about some of these products is that many don’t even realize that they are vegan.  Have you heard of popular snacks like Oreo or Jell-O instant pudding?  Yes, they are both vegan.  They are also both very delicious. 

Want to learn more of what snacks you can indulge as a vegan?  Here are some wonderful options for vegan snacks that you can add to your grocery list.

Vegan Chips

Every now and then, you need a good crunch to satisfy your inner chomp monster.  What better way to do that than with a tasty, crunchy chip.  Surprisingly, conventional chips can be loaded with animal by-products like carmine or casein.  If you want to stay from dairy or ground up insects (ew), it’s time to broaden your horizons.  Vegan chips can taste just as good or even better than non-vegan chips; without the worry of weird animal by products.

Vegan Rob’s is a brand focused on nutrition and compassion.  The goal of this brand is to love yourself, love the planet, and all living things.  This is a commendable goal that will make you happy to support this brand.  Another great reason to support these products is for the wide array of yummy chip flavors to make your taste buds go wild!
