Answering Some Vegan Questions from Google!

Do Vegans Eat Honey?

This is actually a controversial topic that’s subject to the vegan themselves. I personally don’t but I know that there are some that do!

Do Vegans Eat Eggs?

No, Vegans do not eat any animal products in any way.

Do Vegans Eat Fish?

No, Vegans do not eat any animal products in any way.

Do Vegans Eat Cheese?

No, Vegans do not eat any animal products in any way.

Do Vegans Live Longer?

If I’m not mistaken, there was a study that said vegans had lower chances of heart disease and a few other conditions but there was no proof to believe or indicate that we actually live longer than the normal human being. Just less likely for us to die from certain ailments.

Do Vegans Eat Bread?

Yes! However they do have to check the ingredients because some bread does use milk, eggs, or even sugar that is not vegan. We become very familiar with what ingredients to look out for but I have come to the realization that most French and Italian breads from grocery stores are vegan!

Do Vegans Drink Milk?

No, but we do drink soy/ almond/ cashew/ coconut/ hemp and various other types of plant based milks which is also used in making vegan cheeses.

Do Vegans Eat Yeast?

Yes?

Do Vegans Eat Pasta?

Yes! But just like bread, you have to keep an eye on the ingredients.

Are Vegans Healthier?

In terms of diets, it really depends on the vegan. Some do eat insanely healthy and then some go a little crazy on oreos and other sweets. However studies do prove that we are less likely to have high cholesterol and various other diseases. THEY JUST HAVE TO BE SMART ABOUT WHAT THEY’RE DOING!

Are Vegans Healthy?

Depends on the vegan.

Are Vegans Allowed to Eat Eggs?

No.

Are Vegans Gluten Free?

Some are, some aren’t. Personally, I’m not. It’s a personal decision of the vegan to make that decision but being vegan and gluten free does not come hand in hand.

Are Vegans Herbivores?

YES! We are constantly joking about that very fact and we even call you guys omnivores. It’s an easy way to explain it, honestly.

Are vegans dairy free?

Yes!

Are Vegans Allowed to Eat Honey?

First of all, I don’t like the use of “allowed.” Ultimately, it is the person’s choice about what they do or don’t eat and isn’t a matter of being allowed or not. As for Honey, it’s actually a hot topic among the vegan community and absolutely everybody has a different answer. I personally don’t think vegans should but other people disagree.

Are Vegans Weak?

This is a common misconception! Just because we are vegan, doesn’t mean we are weak. There are many wrestlers and football players that are vegan and I assure you they are not weak in any way. Many of us do get enough protein and while some vegans are stronger than others, that’s a matter of what they do and their choices. Some vegans pack on the protein and work out excessively and some eat enough protein to keep sustained.

Are Vegans Vegetarians?

Yes and no. Vegans and vegetarians have one thing in common, they do not eat meat. However, vegans can not eat many vegetarian meals. Think of it this way: Vegetarians can eat vegan meals but vegans can not eat vegetarian meals. Vegans have a lot more “restrictions” which separates the two.

Are vegans unhealthy?

Some vegans are, honestly. Especially the vegans that do not do their research beforehand and walk in blindly. Many of them make common mistakes that are easily avoidable or forget to take note of what problems that could possibly come up. However, not all vegans are. Some of them are incredibly healthy. However, if you mean on the weight side of things then it does depend on the diet and their food choices.

What Vegans Eat

The same things you do, except they don’t eat animal products and replace them with other things. Another big misconception is that the only thing we eat are salads and if a vegan is doing that then they are doing it WRONG.

What Vegans Can Eat

Vegetables, Fruit, Oreos, Skittles, Oatmeal, Plant Based Milk, etc, etc.

What Vegans Can’t Eat

Animal products: Meat, Milk, Eggs, Cheese, Gelatin, and other animal products.

What Vegans Eat for Breakfast

So specific but we can eat tempeh or other kinds of vegan bacon, oatmeal, overnight oats, chia pudding, most cereals with plant based milk. The list goes on endlessly.

What Vegans Eat for Protein

Tempeh, Lentils, Chickpeas, Peanuts, Almonds, Chia Seeds, Quonia, Beans, Potatoes, Broccoli, Mock Meats, Kale, Mushrooms, Seitan, etc.

What Vegans Eat in a Day

This is such a broad possibility. There are plenty of YouTube videos on this fact alone. However, never expect me to make a post like this as this is not something that I think is a good idea.

#BlackFriday Shopping Haul!

I actually don’t remember the sales for about half of it and I will not be including the final cost for anything that I bought because I always go a little crazy when I’m shopping and I just don’t feel like admitting that I went absolutely insane.

 

For those of you who will likely share their concern that I went Black Friday shopping, I went with my mother and her fiance and we actually went to some pretty calm places. Mind you, there are plenty of other shops that we went to and didn’t ultimately end up buying anything (i.e. Michaels and Rue 21).

 

Hot Topic

 

IMG_3690.jpg

 

Hot Topic always has some decent sales on Black Friday and this one was no exception. All of their t-shirts (except for Fashion Tees) were $10 and with Crimes of Grindelwald having just recently come out, of course I HAD to buy a Niffler t-shirt, do you know me at all? 

 

IMG_3691.jpg

 

This shirt actually was on sale for $12 dollars due to it being a fashion tee, but I didn’t realize that this was considered to be a fashion tee at the time so when I was at check- out, I was lucky enough for them to let me buy this shirt for $10 dollars.

Hot Topic also had a generalized sale of buy one, get one half off. But the thing that I got for half off was actually a Christmas present for my lovely, lovely roommate so I will not be advertising that gift on here (as Christmas has not come around yet).

 

But this is a holiday advent jewelry set, where it’s supposed to come with a bracelet and 12 charms in each one of these advents, where you open one a day every day before Christmas. Do you remember the chocolate versions? It’s the same concept! 

 

Bath and Body Works

 

IMG_3697.jpg

 

For this sale, it was buy 3, get 3 free and I always go a little… crazy when I’m at Bath and Body Works and as you all know very well, I am a STRONG believer in Aromatherapy so I bought a lot of their collection of that.

Arometherapy’s Comfort, featuring scents like vanilla and patchoulli, shower steamers. The goal of this is to put it in your showers, right outside the steam/ water and let it melt slowly and it’s supposed to bring comfort. I fully believe in Aromatherapy, but I am a little nervous about shower steamers and was curious to see how it would work.

Aromatherapy’s Sleep, with the new scent of Black Chamomile, pillow mist. I thought that a pillow mist was fitting for an aromatherapy meant for sleep which is why I bought it and admittedly, I’m really excited about the fact that they have a new option for their sleep aromatherapy as I hate the smell of lavender and it made me less likely to use it as I wanted to desperately avoid the scent.

With my newfound single life, as my past relationship has officially dissolved, I decided to play around with Arometherapy’s Love, featuring scents of Rose and Vanilla, Body Scrub to see what would happen in the love department of my life.

Aromatherapy’s Stress Relief, featuring scents of Eucalyptus and Spearmint, Concentrated Room Spray. I haven’t been talking too much about my dorm life but recently, it has come to my attention that some of my residential hall neighbors have complained about the scent coming from my dorm, AKA Apple’s fault. Because of this, Madison helped me buy one of those room sprays that spray every 5 minutes and I bought a carpet de-odorizer but in case those things don’t work, I also bought this and I thought both my roommate and I could really use this to our advantage.

Aromatherapy’s Focus, featuring scents of Eucalyptus and Tea, nourishing Body Oil. I really feel that every college student needs this. It helps them focus on the task at hand, such as homework instead of getting distracted by their own mind. 

 

img_3701.jpg

 

Aromatherapy’s Happiness, including scents like Bergamot and Mandarin, Body Wash and Foam Bath. Happiness has probably been my internal struggle for the longest time and this honestly does make me feel a little better. 

 

UrthBox

 

This one doesn’t have a picture to come along with it but I decided to look around at the vegan snack boxes since I had a little extra money and came across UrthBox. I only bought one of their vegan snack boxes, their large one with 25+ snacks but for Black Friday, if you bought anything on the store then you got an extra box so I will be having two snack boxes coming in soon enough and I was actually planning on showing you guys what is inside the boxes! While I wouldn’t typically reveal how much I bought, I’m actually really proud of this deal as I bought two large snack boxes for $39.99. The box typically costs 49.99 but I also got another $10 off using HONEY!

 

VeganCuts

 

I had actually heard of vegan cuts before, as I had found a lot of videos on box openings and really, desperately wanted to try a box. I would have gone with Vegan Cuts for my snack box but the UrthBox was ultimately cheaper for more snacks today but I still got to buy their Vegan Chocolate Treasure Chest for $32 dollars and free shipping, compared to original cost of $76.15, not including shipping. I will also be doing a video regarding on the contents of this box as well! 

 

JC Penney’s

IMG_3684

This is a lavender, white, and grey sweatshirt with some sort of down arrow design to the top of the sweatshirt. It was actually one of the first things I saw at JC Penney’s and I just had to have it. I can’t recall what it was on sale for, as you’ll notice within time but I’ve always loved some of JC Penney’s clothing even though it’s typically on the girlier side.

 

img_3689.jpg

 

It probably doesn’t surprise anybody that you can find me in the boy’s section of many stores and JC Penney’s is no exception. As you can see on the tag, this shirt is typically $20 but on Black Friday, it was a mere $5 dollars. FOR A HARRY POTTER SHIRT NO LESS.
