Introduction[edit | edit source]

I am vegan/we are vegans and would like something to eat. Veganism is a diet and lifestyle that avoids using animal products in food and in other products of consumption, including clothing, alcohol and cosmetics. People dedicate themselves to veganism for different reasons, with health benefits, animal rights, ecological concerns being some of them.

We do eat; all fruits, vegetables, lentils, beans, rice, and grains. We eat pasta which has no egg, cous-cous, we eat soups and meals with vegetable stock, vegetable and olive oils and coconut milk.

We do not eat meat (beef, chicken, pork or any other animal), fish, meat stock (as used in soups), milk (from any animal), eggs, butter, cheese, lactose, shellac, lard or animal fat, gelatin, or food with these products in, even in small amounts.

Thank you for your time reading this and we really appreciate any food you can prepare.
