Plant-based and vegan diets have become super trendy, but what's actually the difference between the two?
The breakdown is; Vegan diets eliminate all animal products entirely, while plant-based diets do not necessarily eliminate animal products, but focus on eating mostly plants, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains.
As we mentioned above, people who live a vegan lifestyle do not consume any animal products in their diet and bring that into their entire life as well by avoiding products or purchasing clothing, etc. that uses animal products, or tests on animals.
Vegan foods include;
- Nuts and Seeds
- Whole Grains
- Beans and Legumes
- Anything that does not contain animal products!
Plant-based diets mean the person is choosing if they consume animal products or not but there is room for them to fluctuate and consume them if they want to, a plant-based diet emphasizes eating whole foods, meaning the food has undergone little – if any – processing and is as close to its natural state as possible.
Plant-based individuals consume all of the same plant foods as vegans but may choose to incorporate eggs, dairy and even some actual meat into their diets from time to time!
If you want to know more about the plant based movement we have an entire blog post on it.
