I know what you mean about not really trying hard to avoid non-vegan things IN products. Maybe your favourite cereal contains honey, maybe your favourite pastry product has egg in it. It's frustrating, but eventually you learn to find brands that don't contain these things, or you'll find an amazing vegan recipe that is close to your favourite pastry product (I have a great one for poptarts, takes 10 minutes tops to make). It does take some extra work, and you will find that you'll need to do more in the kitchen to get what you want, but it's all part of being vegan. Instead of looking at it as an inconvenience, think of it as a blessing: I find that I love cooking now, and I also love to bake. Also a lot of things that contain non-vegan products, aren't necessarily good for you, and so refraining from eating those items in the food, you are in turn doing yourself a favour; think doughnuts, cakes, cheese puffs, fatty creamy coffee, frozen meals, processed junk food, chocolate bars etc. These things you want to be avoiding anyway because of calories and lack of nutrition and crap, so you're giving yourself extra motivation to avoid them
