3. Vegan things
If there’s one thing that says hipster and different, it’s veganism. Right? Well, some think so. For those of you who don’t know, being vegan, for the most part, means you cut all animal products out of your diet; dairy, eggs, meat and sometimes even refraining from wearing or using any product that involved the use of any animal products when it was made.
Some vegan-friendly snacks include fruit, nuts, hummus, bread and, of course, quinoa.
Here are some vegan recipes to try if you decide to take on the challenge of veganism.
