If you are switching directly from a meat/dairy-based diet to a vegan diet you will find vegan versions of all the foods you have been accustomed to, including cheese, milk, cream, yoghurt, mayonnaise, chocolate, ice-cream, and many more.
There are also vegan brands of ‘fake meats’ such as Fry’s, VBites, Beyond Meat, Vivera and many more which you will find in the fridge/freezer section of supermarkets and health shops.
You will also find the types of foods that vegans typically eat such as beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, grains, tofu, seitan, fruits and vegetables.
