What do Vegans Eat?

by Robert Cheeke, Vegan Bodybuilder, February 28th, 2004

People often ask me, "what can you eat if you're a vegan, just fruits and vegetables right? The vegan diet is not just limited to fruits and vegetables, it is filled with a diversity of healthy and exotic foods, as well as everyday foods that most of us eat on a consistent basis. To help educate people on what vegans eat, I have composed a list of foods that I consume in any given day. This is not a complete list of every vegan food item in the world, but it should give you an idea of what a typical food day could be like for me and other vegans.
When I write a food such item as bagels for example, I am referring to a vegan form of that food. Many foods can be non-vegan or vegan just by substituting a few ingredients.
