It’s not easy to change your diet, that’s for sure. But it’s a whole other thing when you’re doing a 180 (assuming you’re a meat-eating, dairy-downing omnivore) and attempting to go vegan.
The vegan diet involves eating no animal by-products, so that means no meat, no eggs and no dairy. You might ask “What’s left, then?” as a searing panic spreads throughout your body. Turns out there’s a lot you can still consume, including everything Earth has to offer in terms of vegetables and fruit, legumes and nuts, and “real” food substitutes crafted especially for vegans and vegetarians.
A group of brave souls at BuzzFeed volunteered to live as vegans for 30 days. One person cheated on a couple occasions, while the other three stuck to their guns. In all cases, the results didn’t end up being quite what they thought.
