Top 10 Signs You're a Vegan

10 Signs You're a Full-Blown Vegan

Whether you started out dabbling in vegetarianism or went head-first into ditching meat, eggs, milk, and other animal products, here are the top 10 signs you're absolutely a full-blown vegan.

  1. When grocery shopping, you have TVP, tofu, tempeh, edamame, miso, Silk, and every other type of soy product in your cart.
  2. Your veggie-oil-powered VW sports a bumper sticker that reads, "Cows Are For Mooing, Not For Barbecuing!"
  3. At least once a day someone asks you, "How do you get enough protein?"
  4. The only time you'd ever set foot into Burger King is if you desperately needed to use their bathroom.
  5. There's a copy of Veganomicon, Fast Food Nation, and The Kind Diet on your nightstand.
  6. Your favorite condiments are Nayonaise, hummus, and Tofutti cream cheese.
  7. You won't even wear fake fur or leather for fear that someone might mistake it for the real thing.
  8. For your co-worker's birthday, you celebrated by whipping up a homemade cheesecake made from silken tofu and dairy-free chocolate chips.
  9. You can't understand why anyone would eat meat when they can enjoy Tofu Pups, Fakin Bacon, Tofurkey, and spaghetti with wheatballs.
  10. You know eight different ways to replace eggs in recipes.

If this doesn't sound like you, check out the top 10 signs you're a running fanatic, a health nut, or a devoted yogi.

Yes, I can have some soy, but only in limited quantities or my stomach reminds me I have a sensitivity to it. Thanks for the discussion board link!

@Mindy: The key words there are "I prefer". There are all kinds of vegans (and near vegans) out there and they all have individual preferences that deserve to be respected. What's the point in judging people for trying to find good vegan alternatives for flavors or textures they miss? Everyone's energy is better spent encouraging and helping others interested in a plant-based diet rather than criticizing them for buying fakin' bacon or trying to find an alternative to eggs. @Amber: Do you have a soy sensitivity? I love making tofu scramble, but obviously that would be a problem if you can't eat soy. I recommend going up to the discussion boards at If you post the question, I'll bet someone there will have a helpful suggestion.

Exactly one of the reasons I'm not a vegan. Everyone wants good tasting food. I'm mostly vegan, but things like huevos rancheros and omelettes are delicious!

Does it really make sense for a vegan to even want an omelet or scrambled eggs? Makes more sense to me to just find something else to eat like sauteed veggies and toast or a green smoothie. I prefer to find alternative means to eat my food that are quit delicious and dont leave me trying to find egg alternatives.

amber512 - when replacing eggs in egg dishes like scrambled eggs and quiches, vegans often use tofu instead.

I've definitely seen that when it comes to making say, pancakes, or muffins that works. But soy-free, egg-free frittatas or omelettes seems impossible. I mean, how does one make huevos rancheros without eggs?

hey amber, My favorite egg replacement is mixing 1 tablespoon of chia seeds or ground flax meal (I use bob's redmill :D) with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir and let sit for five minutes.

For those who know eight different ways to replace eggs in recipes, help me out! I'd love to know ways to replace eggs in savory recipes that doesn't involve using soy!
