Vegan diets are more common today than they have ever been. Youtubers are trying it out for their audience and some people are transitioning into it for their own personal reasons.
Plant based diets aren’t all tofu and kale, believe it or not. It’s easy to think they are, because we just don’t talk about the vegan options very often. Trying new food is a great way to gather family, experience different cultures and flavors, and expand your palette.
This time of year is an especially great time to try new foods in the plant based realm because it’s the perfect season for vegetables. Carrots, beets, zucchini, pumpkin, tomatoes, and more are in season right now. Hit up farmer’s market to find fresh ingredients.
Check out some of these vegan recipes as well as people experimenting with the diet themselves.
A week isn’t a super long time but it’s nice to watch someone else walk you through the experience.
This recipe is a surprising substitute for the beloved meatball.
It helps to see other people try something before you do.
One of the cool things about being vegan that many people don’t know is that you don’t have to miss out on delicious fod.
One year of veganism is a fair amount of time to feel you have an understanding of the food.
Don’t forget that dessert is always an option. Ben and Jerry’s has plenty of options for dairy free ice cream so no one has to miss out. Processed food isn’t as easy to find that doesn’t include animal by-products but there are still quick and easy options for the nights you’re just not feeling it.
