Accidentally Vegan Feature?

If you’ve pondered veganism but haven’t yet followed through, it may be that you are put off by the myth of the diet being restricted. As with any lifestyle change, slow and steady tends to lead to longevity. It is much better to gradually cut animal products from your diet permanently than trying to be a strict vegan for a month, falling off the wagon, and being put off enough to never try it again.

While making some snack swaps, it can be comforting to know that there are many products, which we can call ‘accidentally vegan’. They are not marketed in this way as their core selling point, but they do not contain animal products.

This makes them more accessible since you do not need to visit a specialist shop to have a choice of vegan snacks.

This list is prefaced by pointing out that it may not be the most nutritious collection of vegan snacks, but they will help in a pinch. 

Which accidentally vegan snacks are already incorporated into your diet?

  1. Ritz crackers
  2. Doritos sweet-spicy chilli chips
  3. Oreo original
  4. Belvita breakfast Tops Choco-Hazelnut
  5. Pringles Original flavour & BBQ flavour
  6. Frys Peppermint cream bar
  7. Ritter Sport Marzipan
  8. Skittles
  9. Lotus Original Caramel Biscuits
  10. All savoury Ryvita Crunchy Rye bread flavours (excluding Fruit Crunch) 

Please read the back of the label for these products in your country, as recipes may differ slightly between manufacturing regions.

We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with! The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable! We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

Off with the head! Getting Rid of Phoney Justice

Welcome to the September issue of The Gordian.

Executing a human being and punishments like solitary confinement are as coldblooded and premeditated as murder and torture can get. They are not in self-defence, because the danger has passed. It is not justice, because a person can always outweigh their deeds, and they can change, given the chance. The theme of this series is still justice and in this issue, we are looking at it from different angles, including those phoney ones imposed on the guilty with little or no respect for their welfare and human right.

This issue offers the usual mix of politics, interviews and culture by UN-aligneders across the world, including Ruby Goldenberg, Carla Pietrobattista, Katharina Wüstnienhaus, Victoria Davila, Partho Chatterjee and Maya Bearyman, Cristina Mihailescu, Omar Alansari-Kreger, Atika Harba and Sonia Roopnarain.

The editors are Adrian Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi.
