Veganism, or the practice of only eating/drink things that are plant-based (i.e. do not contain animal products or meat) is becoming super popular. One of the things that stops a lot of people from going vegan, however, is the thought that they’ll only be able to eat vegetables and quinoa. This is 100% not true, so if you’re looking into incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet, then this list is a great way to show yourself that there are so many things. In addition, if you have vegan friends, this list can help you buy things that you know they’ll love and can eat. Here are 13 foods that are vegan and taste amazing.
If you love bread but also want to follow a more plant-based diet. you might be worried about missing out on some seriously tasty things, However, since it is made with olive oil, all ciabatta is vegan, so you can enjoy this delicious crusty bread without worrying.
If you’re a huge fan of cookies and cream, rest assured that you won;t have to give up the original cookies and cream biscuit. Original Oreos are 100% vegan so you can eat as many as you like whilst still following a plant-based diet.
3. Dried Pasta
Pasta is everyone’s favourite carb, and because most dried pastas aren’t made with eggs, this makes them one of the foods that are vegan. So, you can chow down on a bowl of pasta at least partially guilt free.
4. Chili Heatwave Doritos
Crisps are necessarily something you’d think about in terms of veganism, but some crisp flavourings contain ingredients that are not vegan friendly. Luckily, Chili Heatwave Doritos are not among this number, so you can munch to your heart’s content.

If chocolate is your absolute favourite treat and are sad about not being able to eat dairy milks anymore, you’ll be pleased to know that not all chocolate is off the menu. As it is made without milk, dark chocolate is usually vegan, so you don’t have to give up all your guilty pleasures.
