Vegan Food Online
Choosing a vegan lifestyle is an increasingly common choice and is no longer considered an odd way of life. As a vegan, people believe in respecting animals rather than exploiting them and consequently many don’t wear clothes made from animals, don’t use products containing animal ingredients or that have been tested on animals and don’t eat food that is produced from animals products. +
Eating vegan food is part of a lifestyle that aims to cause less harm to the planet and an essential element of that is ensuring that animals aren’t used for the benefit of humans. At the same time, there is a need for the food to be interesting and varied as well as healthy and nutritious.
A Varied Diet of Vegan Food
Many people who don’t buy into the ideal believe that vegan food is boring — largely tasteless and lacking in variety. That’s a rather out-dated idea and nothing could be further from the truth!
Vegan food now has the same level of variety and taste and offers a wide range of choices. You can snack on salads, sandwiches, soups and have a full healthy meal which includes various dairy free, egg free and meat free alternatives. And main courses don’t just have to be a bowl of veggies either. With so many vegan options, recipes, guides, eBooks and ideas available – choosing a vegan lifestyle and finding a yummy vegan recipe is easy.
At Wholesome Hub we do believe that a vegan lifestyle and organic lifestyle go hand and hand and choosing organic vegan options, means that no harmful chemicals have been used which is much better for all our animals and planet too. Right!
In saying that, if you a following a vegan lifestyle you do need to choose carefully because it’s not always as straightforward as it might appear; animal products and by-products are sometimes not obvious. Honey is obviously from bees but other foods are less clear, with many products made from eggs or milk and some food glazes, for example, made from insect secretions. At Welcome Hub, when you buy vegan food online, you can be sure that nothing contains any animal products or by-products.
A Healthy and Nutritious Diet when you Buy Vegan Food Online
Buying vegan food isn’t the same as buying healthy food because a diet comprising vegan versions of pizzas and burgers won’t provide the balance you need. However, a well-planned vegan diet will ensure you comply with healthy eating guidance by providing fruit and vegetables, more fibre and whole grains, and less saturated fat. A properly planned and balanced diet will help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes and heart disease.
No matter how old you are, whatever your state of fitness or what diet you choose, a well-planned diet that you follow properly can improve your general health. To do this, you need a proper balance of:
- Vitamins (B2 from green vegetables, mushrooms, whole grains, yeast extract and almonds; B12 from cereals, soya milk and yeast extract; D from sunshine, fortified foods, soya milk and vegetable margarine)
- Calcium and Minerals from green vegetables, almonds, watercress, sesame seeds and tofu
- Proteins from nuts, whole grains, pulses and seeds
- Iodine from seaweed and vegetables
- Fatty Acids from plant oils.

What is a ‘Vegan’ product?
Vegan products are food and materials from clothing to makeup that is created without causing harm to any animal. To be considered Vegan, food products need to use no animal sources and be completely 100% plant-based, this extends from abstaining from eating the flesh of an animal to not consuming any of their products including milk and eggs. These items should also be created and packaged in a cruelty-free facility that doesn’t use items such as silk (that also harms animals) for packaging and shipping purposes.
Outside of food, products being vegan certified means that items should not use animal hair or parts and also means that the items should not be tested on animals. Items such as honey are also considered not vegan because of the disruption it causes to bees to obtain it. Furthermore, vegan products need to be harvested sustainably with a lot of thought and consideration to how they could impact the environment.
Why Choose Vegan Products?
Vegan products are often much healthier for us as they all tend to be plant-based, which means that they provide our diets with the fibre, vitamins and minerals most of us miss from not having enough fruits and vegetables in our diet. Vegan diets also force us to be more conscious about our health by ensuring that we supplement the vitamins we would normally get from meat and dairy in other, often healthier ways. Also, in general, vegan diets are kinder to the planet as they do not create nearly as much greenhouse gas emissions or use nearly as much water as the meat industry does.
Then, of course, there’s the huge bonus of having no animals come to harm for vegan foods and products! If you’re interested in talking more about our vegan choices, please feel free to give us a call at 1300 668 747, we look forward to hearing from you!
