What is a vegan?

Most people know what a vegetarian is. A true vegetarian eats no cow meat, fish, chicken, turkey, etc. Some also don’t eat gelatin (cow/horse hooves). Some “vegetarians” eat fish, and may refer to themselves as a pescetarian/piscetarian. When I was vegetarian, I ate no meat, no fish, no animals, as well as no gelatin.

Vegans are much more strict, but much more animal friendly. True vegans use/eat no animal products. This includes the obvious dairy and eggs, but also no honey. Vegans also wear no leather, wool, silk, or any type of fur.

Some people as they transition to being a vegetarian/vegan take out different types of meat little by little other than giving them up all at once. Every little bit that you give up helps, so don’t be afraid to take baby steps.
