Thinking about going “Vegan”?
If you don’t know, apparently there are subtle differences between being a “Vegetarian” and a “Vegan”.
A vegan does not consume ANY animal products. Vegetarians avoid meats, vegans also reject the exploitation and abuse inherent in the making of dairy and egg products, as well as in clothing from animal sources. In the pursuit to respect the lives of animals, vegans avoid meat, milk, cheese, eggs, honey, whey, fur, leather, wool, down, and cosmetics and chemical products tested on animals.
This sounds like a tall order for most of us, but if you are thinking about the idea, one of the biggest concerns that we’ve heard on the subject is “what will I eat, that isn’t bland or flavorless?” Well, besides using chile peppers to spice up your potential new lifestyle if you are considering the switch we invite you to check out Little House of Veggies.
