i thought....i was on day 4 of being vegan<br><br><br><br>
but<br><br>
it turns out my bread wasn't vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
i mean i'd even got vegan hand soaps and everything but i didn't realise about the bread until i emailed the company yesterday when i was unsure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dunce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dunce:"><br><br><br><br>
i feel bad that i didn't realise but its really hard to keep track of all the odd hidden ingredients that i should be avoiding.<br><br><br><br>
how does everyone else manage to make sure they don't slip up on ingredients which have names that are hard to remember?<br><br><br><br>
its easy to cut out visible dairy but i don't know the names of half of these things i should be avoiding....does anyone know how i can get hold of a list that is accurate that i can carry with me?

it's a bit overwhelming at first, but it gets easier. The food things aren't too hard to memorize, but I still have to check some ingredients in beauty products.

The list may look overwhelming, but you should not encounter these weird ingredients in food too often to cause concern. Usually allergy alerts are useful.

I just noticed this message after I put up a thread about animal ingredients.<br><br><br><br>

Our most popular book is also the most comprehensive guide to shopping for vegan products ever. This handy pocket-sized guide is ideal for use when out shopping and its the easiest way to get started on an animal-free lifestyle.<br><br><br><br>
Covering vegan products ranging from food, cosmetics, drink to home and gardening and everything in between, this really is an essential guide for the vegan shopper.<br><br><br><br>
It also contains comprehensive supermarket own brand listings, E numbers to watch out for, veggie/vegan group contact details, company contact details.....in fact it's just full of useful vegan information!<br><br><br><br>
Here's the thoughts of a couple of celebrities :<br><br><br><br>
As an avid reader of product labels, I find the Animal Free Shopper essential! So many people think it must be really 'difficult' to be a vegan, but with publications like this it's being made easier all the time. Follow the Animal Free Shopper and buy goods with a clear conscience.'<br><br>
Wendy Turner-Webster<br><br><br><br>
Animal Free Shopping has always been a way of life for me; it is the most compassionate statement a shopper can make. My only concern is that I too am an animal, but I can never seem to shop for free.'<br><br>

Being vegan is an intention (in the true sense). You are still on day 4 of being vegan and you're going to learn about other things that you might be consuming now that you didn't realize were vegan. It's a learning process. Thanks for taking the journey with us. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I find going vegetarian hard because unless you check off a list or something somethings you wouldn't even know come from animals by just reading the ingredient list.
