Discovering A Healthy Lifestyle
(If you seriously want to begin being vegetarian then start with the easiest book out
there)....Click the link here for a copy of the book "Living Vegetarian for Dummies".
here to give you many options for a different way of cooking. But first a very common question is
"what is the difference between vegan and vegetarian?".
Let me start by saying that both are
animal lovers. Of course there are many reasons why people choose to move away from eating meat. It could be animal
rights, religious, economical or even just pure taste and love of different foods.
A lot people begin as vegetarians
and gradually, over time come to realize that the majority of their meals are actually vegan so the change is
really quite easy to do.
The difference between vegan and vegetarian is simple. Neither one
eats the flesh of any animal or fish. As some-one once said "nothing with eyes that can see me". So that means no
red meat, no white meat such as chicken and no fish (so out goes the Big Mac and Kentucky Fried!).
Vegetarians do eat foods that come from animals such as milk, cheese and
other dairy products and eggs. A note here: not all cheese and other dairy is devoid of animal products as a
lot contain a product called rennet that is used as an enzyme to
harden cheeses. There are two types of rennet, one is made from the stomach lining of young animals, primarily
calves, the other is made from vegetable…..I think you can guess which one is acceptable. It is really
imperative that you check the label to make sure you are getting the vegetable rennet.
Of course they are usually quite particular that these products
are organic and/or free range as the majority of vegetarians do subscribe to animal welfare.
Vegans, on the other hand, do not eat anything that is produced by
an animal at all. They use products such as soy milk or nut milk, purpose made egg replacement and use ingredients
like nutritional yeast or tahini instead of cheese. Vegans, generally, are more verbal regarding animal rights and
welfare and will go as far as making sure their clothing, shoes and bags are not made from leather or animal
