If you are not familiar with veganism, but you’re interested in learning more, then this article is for you. Veganism is noted as “the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet.” With regards to dietary vegans, they exclude from their diet all meat products, and any food or product derived from animals such as eggs and milk.
This diet is more of a ‘way of life’ for those who become vegans, and as such, it can be particularly difficult when it comes to being a vegan in a predominantly non-vegan office environment. If you are vegan, or thinking about taking up this new lifestyle diet, then take a look at the 5 vegan snacks listed below. These are quick and easy to make, and not to mention tasty!
