Here's a pretty complete list. <a href="http://veganpeace.com/ingredients/ingredients.htm" target="_blank">http://veganpeace.com/ingredients/ingredients.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
Don't let it overwhelm you, just learn it a bit at a time. Start with the main ingredients like the obvious meat, dairy, & egg. Other common ones are whey, lactose, honey, casein, gelatin, mono-diglycerides, & vitamin D (unless it's specified D2). Just take it slow and eventually reading labels will be second nature.

Yeah, those lists are pretty overwhelming, but I just became a vegan in June (totally overnight, I didn't do it in baby steps or anything) and reading labels is totally second nature to me now. Like a previous poster mentioned, just avoid the basics at first, meat, milk, eggs and cheese. Be careful with milk though, it comes in many names (casein, lactic acid, lecithin(I think), etc.). Usually there is an Allergy alert in bold letters under the ingredients if it contains dairy or eggs. The next thing that might not be so obvious but is the grosest one in my opinion is gelatin. My friends didn't believe me when I told them what it was, they were all like "No, you're lying...those people brainwashed you!"...then they asked their mommies and shut up, lol. So, yeah, no skittles or marshmellows for you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veganpolice.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":notvegan:"> There are a lot of pretty innocent looking things that are not vegan, but somethings you think are in now way vegan and they are. Nutter Butters are vegan, YAY! but a different brand might have milk... I've found that staying in the "Health food" or "Natural food" section of the store helps a lot, because all of the vegan foods are there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"> Ohh, and those yummy Italian gelatos? They're vegan! And there are alternatives to everything (ice cream, cheese, whipped cream, cream cheese, yogurt, even pizza!) So I guarantee that you won't starve or get bored...In fact, everytime I go to the store I get all excited about buying a food I;ve never had before... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

I'm not vegan, but I try not to avoid high fructose corn syrup, enriched (bread, rice) and those types of things...so label reading is a second nature for me too. So when I read the label of a food I have loved for years and it turns out not only healthy but vegan too, it's a double plus for me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I really do admire vegans too, it is so hard giving up dairy.

I think that's a VERY good idea, to not eat high fructose corn syrup or white bread. Also avoid partially hydrogenated oils!!! Highly carcinogenic food.<br><br><br><br>
But first, get off meat. That's most important. Then off milk, and dairy products, equally important. Then, actually read whats in your food(very good habit), and get off animal product derivatives(caseinate, whey, gelatin, etc..) Or do it all at once, thats what I did. It was actually pretty easy.<br><br><br><br>
And vegans tend to always eat organic food when possible.

No, it's made from the skins of cardboard animals.<br><br><br><br>
Gingerbread men neither, because men are animals too.

Vegans don't eat thin, inexpensive softcover books.<br><br><br><br>
One example of such a book that I avoid eating is <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2F1873176597%2F" target="_blank"><i>Animal Ingredients A-Z</i></a>. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

MoonJumper, where have you found vegan Italian Gelato? Everyplace I have been to, they tell me, or I have read, that it has milk in it. I know Sorbet is usually vegan, but what brand have you found? I would love to buy some. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br><br><br>
Thanks

I usually make my own vegan ice cream. Very easy to do with either a good soymilk/powdered soymilk. There are egg-free bases, they jsut aren't as thick and creamy as most people expect. It's a much lighter ice cream.<br><br><br><br>
I am pretty sure whole fruit sorbet is vegan(pretty sure that's the brand name)? Though it sadly does have corn syrup in it. I love thie tropical fruit mix sorbet though.<br><br><br><br>
But if you really want an easy healthy sorbet get some organic frozen fruit and take it straight to the food processor. You might have to add a little ice, but usually a little fruit juice or sorbet and lots of frozen fruit blended up shoudl mek a soft serve sorbet. To manke it harder jsut throw it in the freezer for a bit. I like it that way because i trust what i put in it. Lol

I get organic on occasion, but it's definitely not "always" - sure it's possible, but I'm usually to cheap, too lazy, too overwhelmed, too broke, too tired, too busy, or a million other reasons...

My kids got bored on a road trip - come on everyone sing along, you know the tune.<br><br><br><blockquote><p>"We don't eat no dairy products.<br><br>
We don't eat no sushi roll,<br><br>
No steak or lambchops<br><br>
In the kitchen.<br><br>
Hey! People! Leave the vegans alone."</p></blockquote>
<br><br>
OK, it needs work. What can you expect from a 13 year old.<br><br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Veganism and organic have nothing to do with one another. You can have an organic diet and be omnivore. You can be a vegan and never consume anything organic.

You're correct, but I think <i>TofuandSprouts</i> was simply responding to <i>The Caco Kid's</i> broad (but incorrect) assumption that all vegans always eat organic.
