Dirty or Clean Vegan, what is the difference in diet ?
We do not claim to know the answers to this increasingly divisive question but we shall try and offer some short pointers not only to see if you identify as Clean or Dirty, but also to understand what is the definitive answer ou there.
Firstly let us look at:
From what we can gather a Dirty Vegan
is a Vegan
(obviously) that eats artificial ingredients, doesn’t take much interest in sugar content and is not too fussed about consuming refined food.
In addition a Dirty Vegan
frequents fast-food outlets and corporate supermarkets in an effort to consume equivalents to any sort of meat such as ribs, burgers, fried chicken, pies, etc. or anything which the big food producers and chain restaurants may introduce to grab a share of the burgeoning vegan
Also it is not clear if a Dirty Vegan
puts any restrictions on alcohol or sugary drinks consumption in favour of water.
Now let us look at:
It appears a Clean Vegan
is a Vegan
that eats mainly plants and organic vegetables from whole food suppliers and retail outlets though some clean products are available from corporate supermarkets.
In addition Clean Vegans
tend to shun meat equivalents, sugary drinks, processed food and chain restaurants in favour of eating their own home made foods, dining with like-minded vegans
and consuming low sugar products and organic food.
Water is an essential for drinking and like a Dirty Vegan
it is not clear if a Clean Vegan
puts any restrictions on alcohol consumption.
This brief summary has left out the nutritional benefits of either diets and also the preferences for animal-cruelty free products.
A Clean Vegan
diet should aid body composition and well-being, whereas the Dirty Vegan
diet should make it easier for anyone thinking of transitioning to a Vegan
Ultimately both diets help and amplify the benefits of Going Vegan
By the way we made up the definition Clean Vegan
as we have no idea what the antonym of a Dirty Vegan
