November 1st is World Vegan Day, an annual event celebrated by vegans worldwide. As plant eaters, vegans avoid all animal products including the consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy. While veganism is deeply rooted in certain cultures and as such, passed on from generation to generation, others choose to adopt a vegan lifestyle for ethical, environmental, and/or health reasons.
In recent years, we’ve seen a huge trend of vegan diets and a shift towards plant-based eating. Health-conscious individuals are filling up on nutritious nuts and seeds, legumes, whole grains, and of course, fruits and vegetables while meat gets a backseat. This shift has created a demand for more vegan-friendly food products, restaurants, and homemade recipes. As a result, more and more individuals are giving plant-based food a try.
Whether you’ve just discovered Meatless Mondays or have been following a vegan diet for awhile, these plant-based recipes are sure to delight your taste buds! Filled with fresh and wholesome ingredients, you won’t miss meat at all with these super tasty recipes. In honor of World Vegan Day, try plant-based — at least for today!
