So I’ve been vegan for around 2 years now and I’ve accidentally eaten at least 3 non vegan foods as far as I’m aware of (honey in a bar labelled ‘vegan’, whey protein in a protein ball thing that looked similar to the vegan one and just recently shellac in dark chocolate coated coffee beans because I wasn’t really on the lookout for it).I just wanted to know if this was a common experience, like do many vegans accidentally eat non vegan foods?
Hi Veganfortheanimals! It's not uncommon for that to happen, especially in the beginning of one's vegan journey. When it does, just remember that it wasn't intentional and move on. Don't beat yourself up about it, as no one's perfect. :) When it happened to me, I just resolved to check labels a bit more carefully.
Yes! Animal products are in so many foods that don't need them. When I do I'll write the company to let them know.

According to superstition you need to go outside, turn around three times, and spit.
Superstition? That's often what I've done --not the turn around thing, just the going outside to spit :laughing:
