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.

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. 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.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.

Meet The New Lady Justice

Welcome to the first issue of the 6 volume of The Gordian. It is largely accepted that Lady Justice’s blindfold symbolises impartiality, however, one cannot help comparing the blindfold to that of “blind” Fortune, whose largess is purely random. How else can there be so much injustice in the world? We say no more: Meet our new Lady Justice. This issue offers the usual mix of politics, interviews, culture, and galleries by our UN-aligneders across the world, including Ruby Goldenberg, Carla Pietrobattista, Katharina Wüstnienhaus, Atika Harba, Kaitlyn Rivera, Anahita Ahmadi, Partho Pratim Chatterjee, Sailaja S.P and Aryan Yekrangi. The editors are Adrian Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi.
