Veganism is a lifestyle many people embrace, or are starting to embrace for themselves. To kick off World Vegan Month, we are featuring some facts about the vegan diet as well as a few recipes to either add to your vegan repertoire or try for the first time.
A Vegan Diet
- includes nuts, leafy greens, fruits,
legumes, vegetables, whole
grains and seeds (variety is key!).
- is high in protein and low in
fat and cholesterol.
- cuts out meat, fish, poultry,
eggs, dairy products and honey.
