There are many different types of diets where people do not eat animal products or if they do only in small amounts. These can be quite healthy but “potato chip and soda diet” has no animal products and is certainly NOT healthy so please talk with a Registered Dietitian or other nutrition professional if you plan to eliminate animal products from your diet.
Eat all foods as close to their natural state as possible. For example, a locally grown apple with the peel remaining is a more nutritious choice than applesauce which is better than apple juice (especially if the apples used to make the juice came from another country or were blended with additional sugar to taste better).
