Vegan / Vegetarian

Plant-based diets are growing in popularity all the time. Both vegetarian and vegan diets involve avoiding the consumption of products that derive from animal slaughter. People who are vegan also avoid animal byproducts, such as dairy and eggs, and may avoid other products that rely on the use of animals in their creation, such as leather and certain cosmetics. There are many reported health benefits of these diets, but followers may need to be mindful about how they meet their nutritional requirements.
