When you think of vegan food, you probably think of raw fruits and vegetables, tofu and different types of meat substitutes, like tempeh and seitan. While these are all delicious, there are many junk food favorites that are vegan, either on purpose or accidentally.

 

The No. 1 junk food people seem to have picked up on as being vegan is Oreos. Most seasonal flavors, from Peeps to peanut butter, are also vegan. If you’re itching for a good cookie, feel free to indulge in Oreos.

 

After Oreos, consider vegan ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s has several vegan flavors, and other dairy-substitute brands make excellent ice cream as well. Check out So Delicious, NadaMoo and Halo Top. Brands like Daiya make frozen pizzas with vegan cheese as well, so don’t miss out if you like pizza.

 

There are lots of items you can get from typical fast food restaurants as well. Usually French fries are vegan, and only lose that when they are fried in oil that also fries meat. McDonald’s is guilty of this one.

 

Potato chips, chips and salsa, and many types of candy are vegan as well. My favorite vegan candies are definitely Nerds, Sour Punch Straws and SweeTarts.

 

Vegan food has the reputation of being healthy, but there are always ways to eat poorly if you set your mind to it.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.

Staying Safe While Taking Selfies

Capturing a shot of ourselves in the most impressive, gorgeous places on earth can feel like an uncontrollable compulsion. But taking selfies can be dangerous, and even deadly without the right safety protocols in place. According to a selfies study from researchers associated with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, more than 250 people died while taking selfies over six years. And that number only accounts for people who lost their lives to the selfie craze and doesn't account for injuries.
