Eating one vegan meal a week can be as easy or as difficult as you make it. I created this guide to show you how very easy it can be and to wipe away all of your excuses.

WHAT IS VEGAN FOOD?
Vegan food isn’t a special type of food. Vegan food is really defined more by what it doesn’t include, which are animal products. Animal products include the flesh of animals themselves (land and sea animals as well as insects) and their “secretions” as Colleen Patrick-Goudreau puts it (gross but accurate). These secretions include honey, milk and eggs, which as a result includes foods made with milk and eggs, like cheese, mayonnaise and yogurt.
Following are for breakfast, lunch and dinner that range from Super Easy to Moderately Difficult or Medium. None of these ideas are Very Difficult or Hard. Those listed as Medium difficulty just take more time than the others.
