Woah, boring post title, but bear with me! As you may know, I follow quite a strict local/vegan/gluten-free diet in accordance with my own moral and ethical beliefs which govern every aspect of my life. (I’ve blogged about this before: here). I thought today I would share with you a standard food shop, and talk about a bit about vegan food shopping!
In no way am I intending to convert you all to a vegan lifestyle or preach about myself from the mountaintops; I’m just sharing my food shopping (the closest I’ll get to a “haul” post). It’s a lot longer than my usual posts!
KNOW YOUR LABELS:
Lactose-free: still often contains milk protein sourced from animals, as does anything containing “whey”.
The Vegan Society: the logo means it has been checked and approved by the Vegan Society.
TRICKY PRODUCTS – IS IT VEGAN?
Is It Vegan? is a game well-known to all vegans and allergy-sufferers. There is a LOT of grey area in many food groups, and a trusty ingredient check is what’s needed 9 times out of 10. I have singled out just a few groups which are often problematic when playing Is It Vegan?
