Vegan vs Plant Based Diet

Do you know the difference between a vegan diet and a plant based diet?  Actually the difference is very simple.  A plant based diet is a vegan diet without the sugars, salt, and oils.  They are against the mock meats.  I go to a monthly meeting of a plant based group.  We usually have just under 100 people attending.  Of those, about 25% are medical doctors, nurses, or those involved in the medical field. 

Many who say that they are on a plant based diet are actually on a vegan diet.  A vegan diet usually has sugars, salt, and oils in it but they do not have to have those three ingredients.  That does not mean that someone that designates themselves as vegan can not actually eat a plant based meal or meals.  Of course they can since a plant based diet is a vegan diet.  On the other hand, a vegan diet is not necessarily a plant based diet.
