Whats The Difference Between Vegans And Vegetarians?

Postby Bressal » Sun Apr 16, 2017 11:22 am

Vegetarians are the ones who abstain from meat consumption but consume the by-products of meat.
Vegans are those who abstain from consuming meat and its by-products.
Vegans also do not wear clothes made from animal hide such as leather and fur.

How to be vegan?

Here's what you need to eat.
Please make a note of the pulses and vegetables which I've mentioned.

You need to make sure you eat pulses at least three times a week and fruits and vegetables everyday.

Have a fruit for breakfast(apart from something else of course) and a vegetable/pulses for lunch and dinner.

Make sure you include all vegetables,pulses,lentils and beans(kidney beans,chickpeas,black eyed peas,green peas and many more)

Don't eat mock meat and soybean as mock meat contains sodium and soybean is bad for health( http://rheumatic.org/soy.htm ).

Mock meat is also soy based so too much soy can be bad for health.

Actually even a little soy is bad for health.

What's wrong with soy?

Soy beans are naturally toxic to humans, but they're harmless when they go through a fermentation process, which is how we get tofu.

But soy is being used in more and more things these days.

Just look through your cabinet. You'll be surprised.

Anyway, most companies aren't putting their soy beans through this process because it takes too much time, and time = money.

Instead, they put it through a chemical process, but this rarely gets rid of the soy's toxicity completely.

Symptoms of a high soy diet are thyroid problems, breast cancer, and other complications.

People get these symptoms because the soy they eat isn't fermented.

Mock meat can never be part of a staple diet(food what you eat everyday).

You CAN have it ONCE IN A WAY.

Its a luxury and not a need.

You need to consume naturally occurring FRUITS,VEGETABLES(cauliflower,carrot, potato, beetroot, okra, eggplant, radish, turnip, cabbage, bitter gourd, spinach,capsicum(aka bell peppers)),PULSES(chickpeas,kidney beans,black eyed peas,green gram,black gram,lentils,lablab bean,moth bean,horse gram,cow pea,double beans),NUTS(cashew nuts,peanuts,walnuts,pistachios,raisins) and GRAINS.

Make something like rice and bread your staple diet.

You can have rice with vegetables for lunch and bread(I have Indian bread usually) with pulses for dinner(or you can do it whichever way you like though that's the way I do it).

You can have fruits for breakfast besides something else. You will get all vitamins and minerals from fruits,vegetables,pulses and nuts.

Also,don't fall for the myth that says vegans/vegetarians need to take multivitamin supplements.

Vegans/vegetarians don't need to take supplements as they get all their nutrients from fruits,vegetables and pulses.

Supplements are supposed to be taken by people with deficiencies so do not take them unless they have been prescribed to you by a doctor.

Whats The Difference Between Vegans And Vegetarians?

Vegans do not eat anything that comes from an animal.

Vegetarians do not eat meat.

A vegan would not eat marshmallow and gummies because it has bone marrow in it which comes from an animal.
(although some vegetarians do this too)

Okay, another example.
One that is better.

A vegan would not eat cake because it has dairy in it.
Unless it is a vegan cake.

However, a vegetarian would eat the cake because it does not contain meat.

I hope this helps.

Vegetarians don't eat meat. Vegans don't eat anything that comes from a animals at all, so no dairy, no meat, no eggs, and no processed foods that contain any of these ingredients. So they basically live off nuts, fruits, veggies, grains, and wheat. I know I couldn't do it!! Lol

Vegetarians can eat dairy products but no meat. Vegans don't eat anything that comes from an animal (milk, cheese, etc) so no meat either.

Vegan is harder than being a vegetarian, but if it's really what you want to do, go for it!!!

The difference between vegans and vegetarians is that vegan do not eat meat or any dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs, or anything else that is produced by an animal) while vegetarians eat everything but meat. :)

Oh, there's so much more to being vegan than just what we eat! We also do not buy/use things that come from animals nor that have caused animals harm; clothing (fur, feathers, wool, silk, leather, cashmere), medications (for me that means all non essential meds), personal care products (shampoo, conditioner, soap, cream, toothpaste etc), household products (clothing and dish detergent, cleaning products etc.).
We also do not support the commodification of animals (buying animals from breeders, buying companion animal supplies from stores that sell animals, go to zoos & aquariums, go to horse/dog races, etc).
Yes, it does take effort.
For me it is forth it and it is just who I am now.
