There are hundreds of foods you didn’t know were vegan! When my friends say eating Vegan food must be disgusting I always ask them if they like Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. Who doesn’t like that? So why is this list of unhealthy vegan food important?
It’s important to get people to see veganism as normal. People think nuts and twigs when they think veganism. We need them to see there is a wide variety of “normal” food out there to choose from. If it helps to get them to eat less animals then that is a win for veganism.
I’ll share a true story from my life that demonstrates this perfectly. I don’t eat Oreo Cookies anymore but I used to love them. I wasn’t addicted to them but I would eat them often during my last year of college.
My omnivore roommate came home one night while I was cramming for a test and binging on Oreo cookies. She practically yelled at me “See I knew you weren’t a vegan, I caught you in the act!”
I had no idea what she was talking about until she grabbed the Oreos, shook her finger at me, and said I was a bad girl. It was so funny to me at the time. It was also a turning point in her life. She is actually eating a plant based diet today.
It’s kind of weird but for some reason, when she saw me eating Oreo cookies, it dawned on here that veganism wasn’t something that was so weird she shouldn’t consider it. From that night forward she was always up for a discussion on veganism.
Many things are vegan that you may have never though of. Peta has put together a list of common items that may blow your mind. Who knew there was so much Vegan food? These are just some of the foods from this long list that I have eaten and love. It’s only a tiny sample though.
