19 things you will only understand if you’re a vegan
‘No guys, I don’t wear hemp or collect crystals…I just don’t like animal by-products!’
Vegans make up less than 1% of the UK population and are therefore subject to a lot of myths.
Here’s the first thing to set straight – a vegan diet is made up of more than soybeans – yes vegans may choose to eat plant-derived foods but that doesn’t mean that they can’t still eat stir fry, pasta, sushi, pad thai, pancakes and pizza.
‘Oh my god, they’re just like us!’ Yes…they are.
We’re not saying that being a vegan isn’t hard – it’s incredibly tough, just not for the reasons most people would assume. Veganism isn’t difficult because you are unable to eat bacon, it’s difficult because people will frequently tell you how stupid you are for purposely cutting bacon out of your diet and try to tempt you by waving BLTs in front of your face, hoping to make you crack and munch it down.
Seeing as vegans are rarely in the majority, it is hard to find someone who understands. So for those of you who know the struggles of veganism all too well, here are 19 things that you will understand…
