What Is a Vegan Diet? for you
There’s no official difference between being vegan and eating a plant based diet. But as a general rule, being vegan means avoiding the consumption of all animal products including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products and honey as well as avoiding wearing fur, leather, silk and pearls and sticking to cruelty free cleaning and beauty products. Following a plant based diet is less strict (for example, you may still choose to carry on wearing your leather boots) and involves avoiding animal products as much as possible. Some people believe that following this way of eating means they will automatically be eating a healthy diet but this is not the case. You can just as easily have an unhealthy vegan diet as you can an unhealthy meat eating diet. It is important to do your research in detail on what you should and should not be consuming.
