Some people have the notion that vegans only eat bland and tasteless vegetables and salads every day. Some think that a plant-based diet consists of a monotonous and narrow assortment of foods. But this is simply untrue! Yes, vegans shun all animal-based products not just in their diets, but also in their lifestyles. But that doesn't mean as a vegan, you can't enjoy delicious food. Every food, meal, or treat that we love can be made vegan, even vegan chocolate chip cookies and cakes.
Have your (vegan) cake and eat it too
Vegans only eat plant-based foods. Unlike vegetarians, vegans exclude all products that are derived from animals, including bee’s honey, chicken’s egg, and cow’s milk. Veganism is a commitment to avoiding animal products as far as practically possible, so a reevaluation of who we eat at mealtimes is necessary. However, this change to your lifestyle isn’t as difficult as it may seem as first: it’s actually an opportunity to revolutionize the way we eat and view food.
What most people are unaware of is that most foods have vegan versions — and they are just as good. For example, if you're a chocolate lover, you can still satisfy your cravings with decadent dark chocolate or a plate of guilt-free vegan chocolate chip cookies. So, whoever thinks that vegan foods are bland are sadly mistaken.

There are many reasons why people go vegan. Some for their health, the environment, or the animals. Did you know that veganism can help end world hunger? Redistributing crops across human populations that badly need them, and slowing the effects of climate change both help feed hungry humans. So, the more people who follow a vegan diet, the more we are able to feed the world. But aside from going vegan, there are also other ways you can help the world like donating to a world hunger charity that is fronting these efforts.
And to further show your commitment to saving the Earth, you can use reusable grocery bags like Coconuts Whisk's vegan essentials tote bag to help lessen the need for single-use plastics.
