What Vegans Actually Eat

(But never put on their Instagrams)

Are you really even vegan if you don’t eat your 15-ingredient smoothie bowl with a wooden spoon?

Instagram can make veganism seem like a never-ending, multicolored bevy of smoothie bowls, avocado toasts with 8,000 different toppings, and jackfruit tacos draped with pea tendrils. But what you see on a screen isn’t real life — smoothie bowls are WEIRD, I’m too LAZY to add toppings to my avo toast, and pea tendrils are SUPER uptight!
