What Does A Vegan Eat?

I wanted to create a simplified list for people starting out in veganism or anyone else who is interested in some new options. I have compiled a list of alternatives for vegans. A basic breakdown of 3 main food categories in which most people get stumped on, "what exactly does a vegan eat?" If you are from other countries and know of brands I can add to the list, please contact me.
Milk Alternatives

Let's start first with the basic types of milk alternatives available on the market: 7-grain, soy, rice, almond, chestnut, coconut, flax, oat, sunflower, hazelnut, hemp, quinoa, pea, barley, lupin, peanut, spelt, sesame, brazil nut and cashew.
