    @JJ is the one to ask. I do believe he has existed on a diet of Fray Bentos pies and John Smiths bitter for decades.

    I assumed I'd eat in the van but often it's hard to get vegan products like tofu or nut or grain milks. Recently in Denmark there was very little to be found
    Will just have to seek out health food shops I guess

    There's more meat in a vegan diet than the average Fray Bentos pie :whistle:

    Don't think there's many of them in one either.

    I think you have to keep a minimum of 6 metres distance from anyone else when you eat one though (y)

    Firstly I confess that I don't know what a vegan may not eat.

    This part of France does not really understand non-meat eaters but I'm sure that you would find something suitable in most of the supermarkets. But don't expect (m)any restaurants to cater for your needs.

    No animal products at all.

    So no meat, fish or gelatin obviously. Also no eggs, dairy products or honey.

    Very strict ones won't wear anything made from wool or leather either.

    You can buy veg, fruits, nuts and various rice and grains from most places.
    You'll just gave to drink water, juice or black tea and coffee.
    From what I understand about a vegan diet, you have to take vitamin supplements anyway.

    I like tobacco, beer and whisky, they are all made from plants. Does that make me a vegetarian ?.

    Think its nothing from an animal,,no meat, no milk, no cheese, no woolen clothes,no leather shoes ,belts gloves etc,,,Poor animals,,if we didn't use them they would not exist ,,fields full of crops,,no sheep, goats ,cattle, chickens, ducks or geese,,It would be a sad world. Can understand peoples ethics but it would be the end for many animals that we see every day. BUSBY.

    We are not vegan, but my son and family are, other grandson is galactosaemic, so no dairy for him. Do always hava a look when out and about there are more options available now than in 2010 but mainly in the larger/more popular places. Not sure about eating out, mercadona in Spain sells soya milk and I am sure I have seen tofu there too.
    will take note when we go later.
