Any time you are coming up with a shopping list for your office kitchen, there are several things that you must remember. The most important thing to remember is, there is that friend who is a vegan and in case he or she plans to have dinner in your place, you have to cater for his or her needs. In the modern world, chances of meeting someone who is a vegan are quite high. The good thing about vegans is they will always tell you that they are vegans, in case they happen to come to your office or even at your home, without even asking them. Still, in case they are coming for a dinner at your place, they will push a message to you to remind you that they are a vegan or they will keep on checking your “menu’. They do this because they love what they eat and they are quite passionate about they life which they chose to live. To them, what they eat isn’t just about the diet, but it is their lifestyle that is founded in their firm beliefs in regard to consuming animal products. Despite the fact that many people think the total number of vegans is negligible, it is good to know that they make 2% of the USA total population. Therefore, if you take people into groups of 50, one per every group will be a vegan. To add on this, it is good to note that there is a vegans’ world’s day which is always on 1st Nov and this tells you that you should also remember vegans snacks any time you are doing your shopping for office kitchen.
It will also be good to know the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan. The simplest way of differentiating the two terms is to know vegan is stricter than a vegetarian when it comes to eating animal products. For the vegans, they don’t eat anything that is related directly or indirectly with animal products. This confirms why a vegan will always check twice or thrice snacks which are labelled as vegetarians.
Finally, it is to know the numerous benefits that comes with eating vegan snacks which include, these snacks are very friendly to the environment, they can help in reduction and regulation of sugar levels in the blood and they can also help in reducing symptoms of arthritis. Out of this, one has to be extremely careful by checking carefully and closely that the snack is meant for vegans and not for vegetarians as a way of ensuring that it is good and worth your cash.
