What’s the difference between vegan & plant-based?

The word vegan can stand for a diet or a person. A vegan is someone who chooses not to eat meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, and honey. Moreover, vegans usually do not wear nor use animals at all. The original definition of “veganism” was coined by Donald Watson: “a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude — as far as is possible and practical — all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose…”

Plant-based is a newer term, which specifically deals with diet. It refers to eating plants as opposed to animals, mainly for health reasons, and it doesn’t deal with clothing, toiletries, etc. Other terms include: plant strong, whole food plant based, and many more.
