Although it is relatively simple to spot animal products in a listing of ingredients, such as gelatin, lard, rennet, and animal fat, the real trick is to read every single label of every single bit of food you are thinking about buying. You should realize that animal products show up in some of the most unlikely places: fruit pies, vegetable soups, Easter candy...the list is endless. If your goal is to avoid all animal products, make it a habit to search ingredient lists before taking a bite.
This works really well try it!!!
Thanks for the tip!
Make sure to ask at restaurants if the soups contain beef or chicken stock (usually the leftover parts of the flesh) as a base. About 90% of the time all vegetarian soups do. :-(
