I haven’t eaten meat in years, but some of these I still had to learn the hard way.
People don’t eat meat for a variety of reasons, but if you’ve gone vegetarian or vegan because of animal cruelty, you’ll have to do more than just skip that Big Mac.
The reality is that animal-derived products are used to make A LOT of foods — including many that many well-meaning vegetarians and vegans eat regularly.
And while I’m not trying to tell anyone how they *should* eat, I wanted to share these in case you’re in the same boat as I am. Here are some foods that many vegetarians and vegans eat — that are technically *not* free of animal products.
Frosted Pop Tarts
Pre-Made Pie Crust
Gummy Bears (And Pretty Much Gummy Everything)
Did I miss any? Or do you have any favorite vegetarian-friendly substitutes for anything on the list? Share in the comments!
