A vegan diet focuses on plant-based foods and beverages and it eliminates all products derived from animals. This means vegans exclude all meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, eggs, gelatin, and honey. The benefits of eating a vegan diet include reduced inflammation, improved digestion, blood sugar regulation, weight loss, and disease prevention. People choose veganism for health reasons, social and environmental reasons, or both. For many, practicing a vegan lifestyle extends beyond their diet and includes avoiding clothing, accessories, cosmetics, and household items that are from animals or tested on them. Recipes that are vegan will be labeled with the icon below.
