FAQs – Gifts For Vegans
What do vegans eat for protein?
If you ask this to a vegan, they likely will confirm that they do get plenty of protein. Vegans certainly don’t survive off vegetables alone. In addition to veggies, their diet mainly consists of fruits, legumes, whole grains, and nuts. One of the most popular sources of protein is tofu, which is made from condensed soy milk.
What can I cook for my vegan friend?
If you are having a dinner party, you likely want to make sure you have plenty of options for your vegan friend. It’s very considerate of you to think of them ahead of time. It never hurts to ask the person what foods they would prefer. In general, any vegetables or tofu are an excellent go-to when cooking for a vegan. However, you will want to steer clear of using regular butter in your recipes. If you look closely, you can find vegan butter.
Do vegans drink alcohol?
For the most part, alcoholic drinks are vegan. However, there are some drinks that have additives derived from animals, like honey. If you are looking to buy an alcoholic drink for a vegan friend, it’s always a good idea to check the label to be sure it is vegan. You can also ask them what their favorite drink is so you can make sure it is vegan.
