Vegan diets exclude all products taken from animals. These include any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish, or any foods that come from killing an animal, such as fats and gelatine. Vegan diets also exclude dairy products, eggs and honey. Variety is key to a healthy vegan diet – eat assorted fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, whole grain products, nuts, seeds, and legumes and be aware of the most common nutrients lacking in a vegan diet.
