Seven Levels Vegan is a personal joke and guide to help newbie Vegans. We all know that the Vegan Diet is a difficult commitment to follow. This post is about dividing the Vegan journey into seven levels. The changes that you go through on the Vegan Diet. There are so many different ‘types’ or ‘levels’ of Vegan. In terms of what is considered ethical or what is actually considered part of the Vegan diet. This post is dedicated to all of those that have pondered, “What Level of Vegan am I on?”
This question has consumed my Vegan Life. In my whole three months of being Vegan and during the Vegilicious Cape Town Vegan Challenge. It’s more complicated than I thought. So I’ve created a solution. A guide for seven levels Vegan, making Vegan life and other non-Vegans’ lives easier. Below is an easy guide to discover just what kind of Vegan you are, based on a Seven Level grading.
Seven Levels Vegan Inspiration for the Vegan Journey
Level One Vegan – Becoming the Change on the Seven Levels Vegan Guide
Level One of Seven Levels Vegan means either you’ve been converted by a friend, a film or you going to the next step. Vegetarians are basically Level One Vegans.
Occasionally eats ice-cream on the sly
Will eat milk chocolate gifted by non-vegans and on wk ends
Indulges in pizza
No Superpowers attained at this stage
Eats: Mostly starch; bread and potatoes like fries, chips, baked potato and mashed potato with Veg and salad on the side
How to spot a Level One Vegan: They constantly tell you how hungry they are
Level Two Vegan – The Realisation Level
Level Two Vegan
Once you’ve unlocked Level Two Vegan you consciously start reading labels and buying animal-by-product-free products. You’re still transitioning into being a Vegan. At this level, you will feel disappointed as you realise that there are animal products in almost everything. You also learn/realise that leather isn’t Vegan. The realisation makes you feel either sad, guilty or disappointed.
Occasionally eats food like bread or cookies that says may contain cows milk
Probably will cheat at least once a month, this Vegan thing is hard
Is still used to eating food that represents meat and animal products like cheese
Eats: Vegan-friendly convenience food like Vegan mince and sausages or Vegan pies with starch and veggies on the side
How to spot a level two Vegan: Still drinks honey in their tea or coffee
Level Three Vegan – The Educational Breakdown of what Seven Vegan Levels are like
Level Three Vegan
This is the level of magic, where you consume your mind with everything Vegan, from documentaries about animal cruelty and slaughterhouses to learning about food and how to nourish yourself properly. At this stage, your skin starts glowing because your diet is so clean and you feel completely in sink with nature.

This is the level that Vegan superpowers can get activated
You start becoming more mindful
Eats: Mostly raw food, the path of discovery leads you down the raw road of reality
How to spot a Level Three Vegan: Their skin glows, they eat only rabbit food and they start voicing their Vegan opinions
Considering cruelty-free beauty products? It is the best step forward on the Conscious Living path. Read this Best Vegan Products Review for Cruelty-free beauty products in Cape Town.
Level Four Vegan – The Converting Level
Level Four Vegan
This is the level of comfort. You start becoming comfortable in your Vegan skin. Voicing your opinion without sounding like a pushy Vegan. You’re conscious of everything around you and you feel more alive than ever. You’re aware and most importantly your happiness starts shining from the inside out.
The only way to move to level five is by converting your first non-Vegan
Unlocking Superpowers is attained through spreading the word of the Vegan Life

How to spot a level 4 Vegan: Has the full Vegan Glow but still occasionally wears the leather goods
Level Five Vegan- Unlocking the Superpowers
The levels of Vegan are complicated but do in fact exist. In real life, on the internet and on the telly. I’m not just making this up. Although it has been quite fun thinking it out.

I hope this guide helps define your Vegan Life better. It’s not meant to be taken literally or personally. Rather this is dedicated to the love of Veganism and all that it stands for. A little something that pokes fun at the difficulty of living a Vegan Life due to societal mainstream consumerism.
