Are you interested in learning more about veganism? Then our quick guide will teach you the basics about this lifestyle, so you can know what to expect and how to follow it correctly.

You are going to see how vegans eat, so you can follow their guidelines and learn more about the benefits of this lifestyle.

What Is a Vegan? – The Definition

Anyone who follows veganism – be it as a diet or lifestyle – is a vegan. Therefore, they follow the rules, which are to avoid consuming any animal foods or to use products that involve animal products (animal suffering) during their processing.

That is why Govinda offers a vegetarian menu that complies with all the rules and limits of veganism, to bring you a tasty experience that follows your lifestyle to heart.

In addition, you can use vegan as an adjective to address the foods/products that fall within the limits of the lifestyle. For example, you can say that a wine is vegan, that a certain cheese substitute is vegan or that a mayonnaise is vegan.

However, as you have seen, it extends beyond food, because veganism aims to stop animal suffering. Therefore, vegans also avoid using products that have been tested on animals like certain cosmetics. Therefore, someone who follows this lifestyle would solely use vegan cosmetics.

In addition, it also involves the use of animal-derived products such as wool and leather, and therefore, we can say that furniture and clothing can be vegan.

In conclusion, this is what a vegan is and what you need to follow in order to call yourself one. There are different levels, but the ideal is to follow the lifestyle as it is, with all of its conditions and limits.
