73 Things Vegans Can Still Eat: Snacks

Nearly every non vegan I have spoke to about veganism has said to me “I could never go vegan, I love food too much”. Well, me too my friend, me too. In fact, I have never loved food as much as I do now that I’m vegan. I used to be such a picky eater, but now I will try anything and 9 times out of 10, I will enjoy it. 

I understand what some of these people mean though, and that a lot of people are not actually aware of the food they can still eat whilst being vegan. They are under the impression that veganism is all about the grass, and not about the chocolate. Drool. Before I ever even thought about going vegan myself, I always thought a vegan diet was so restrictive and had to be super healthy. Boy, was I wrong! I still eat a lot of my favourite foods now, because they are accidentally vegan. Which is awesome for me! 

Accidentally vegan products are things that were not made with the intention of being vegan, however they do not contain any animal products or byproducts in them, which means that they are suitable for vegans to enjoy. 

I thought I would share with you some of the foods that are accidentally vegan, foods that you will probably already be eating, to show you how you do not have to miss out on any of the good stuff whilst living a vegan lifestyle. Also, to any vegans reading this who aren’t quite sure what they can still eat and what they can’t.

Whether you are vegan or not, considering veganism or not, it is always nice to make compassionate choices. I also hope you learnt just how unrestricted veganism can be!

Enjoy your cruelty free snacking! I know I sure will. 

Peace & Love, Sian
