We all desire to take better care of ourselves, and part of that self-care is being particular about the foods that we eat. Whether it is a special eating plan we are trying to stick to or just paying attention to the labels on our food, we understand that the foods we put into our body have a lot to do with our health, mood, and how we feel every day.
But some have taken eating habits one step further and introduced a moral aspect to the foods they eat and even the products they buy. One of the most prolific groups who adhere to these strict eating habits on both health and moral grounds are Vegans.
The term “vegan” was first coined back in 1944 by Donald Watson when he spearheaded the founding of the Vegan Society. He described the word’s origin as the first three letters and the last two letters of “vegetarian.” Therefore, it represented the “beginning and the end of vegetarian.”
For either moral or health reasons, vegetarians abstain from eating meat of any kind. This includes beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. They feel like it is cruel to kill animals to consume them. In addition, vegans feel that the vegetarian diet does not fully encompass the philosophy of not exploiting animals. As a result, vegans include eggs, dairy products, honey, and any other product derived from animals or insects in their list of prohibited items. Many vegans also follow the moral philosophy of not wearing anything or using any products made from animals.
A vegan diet consists largely of items such as:
- Lots of fruits and vegetables;
- Pasta, rice, and bread;
- Seeds and nuts;
- Dairy alternatives like soy and coconut milk;
- Legumes like lintels, peas, and beans; and
- Vegetable oils.
The vegan diet is everything that didn’t come from an animal or insect in any way. Most vegans find creative ways to mimic foods that they love by substituting accepted alternatives. Burgers made from black beans or omelets made from chickpeas and onions are two examples of this.
CBD & D8 Edibles
Vegans must be painstakingly careful to read the label on any products they buy to adhere to the vegan standards. This is because even the most innocuous product could contain an animal derivative. Two examples are gummy edibles and softgel capsules. You would think something as charming as a gummy bear could never have harmed an animal, but you would be wrong.
The reason most gummy edibles and softgels are not considered vegan-friendly is that they include gelatin as the main element in creating the gel covering on softgels or the gummy consistency in gummy edibles. If you are unaware, gelatin is created from boiling down animal byproducts like bones and tendons. Once cooled, this solution becomes gelatin that is inexpensive to make and easy to add to just about anything to give it a gel-like consistency.
