your vegan food guide

vegan food

We have been vegan since 2015. Back in the day, most of the vegan alternatives left a lot to be desired.

Fast forward to 2021…

Anything non-vegans can do vegans can do better

Nevertheless, if you’re new to veganism, working out the best alternatives to use can be confusing.

We’ve put together this mammoth guide to everything vegan food. 

This will be updated regularly as we discover new products and write new vegan food articles.

You’ll learn which vegan food is the tastiest, where to find the best vegan restaurants, and even how to be more confident with your own cooking.

why our vegan food guide

Because we (Alice and Lucy) have been vegan since 2015 and have spent all these years testing all the vegan food that this world has had to offer us.

Lucy used to be a professional vegan chef and even has her own vegan food blog.

Alice is fascinated by ferments and fungi, so you’ll often find her in the kitchen experimenting with some new bubbly idea.

What is vegan food?

Vegan food is tasty food that is also great for the planet.

What vegan food isn’t?

Vegan food isn’t a non-human animal product, or a non-human animal by-product.

This means that a vegan diet is free from meat, dairy, eggs, and seafood.

So, a vegan diet is free from harm and unnecessary suffering, but full of planet-friendly foods.

And guess what, anything you can do, we can do vegan 😉

What do vegans eat?

A vegan diet is only limited by your imagination. 

Vegans can eat anything from burgers, pies, and chips, to paella, linguine, and cake.

All it takes is a few substitutions here and there and we can make something vegan.

You can see all the amazing vegan food options that you can make yourself down below.

Is vegan food more healthy?

In general a vegan diet is much more healthy than a carnivorous diet as it is primarily focused on eating plant-based foods.

But a vegan diet doesn’t simply = a healthy diet. Because plants can still be fried and overly processed.

Try to keep processed ready made vegan foods to a minimum and focus on getting as much whole foods (fruit, veg, legumes, beans and grains) in your diet. But don’t worry if you just can’t be bothered to cook, we love having the occasional night off, putting our feet up whilst waiting for our M&S plant-based no-chicken kiev to cook in the oven.

There are so many amazing healthy whole foods vegan alternatives to your favourite meat-based products, just check them out below.

What everyday foods are vegan?

By nature, all fruit, veg, legumes, beans, and grains are vegan. 

You’ll also find that most bread is vegan. But do keep an eye out, some brands like to hide milk in their bread (but why?!), especially in Asia. 

Love biscuits? Oreos are vegan (in the UK & Europe), and so are Jammy Dodgers!! 

There are so many everyday foods that are accidentally vegan, just check out this list by PETA.

Where can you buy vegan food?

Nowadays, vegan food can be bought in pretty much any supermarket/store. 

We’ve travelled to many countries around the world and have seen an emergence of vegan food pretty much everywhere we’ve been!

No vegan labelled food? Well, you know you are safe with fruit, veg, beans, legumes, and grains!
