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.
