November marks World Vegan Month! An entire month in which vegans across the planet gather to celebrate their plant-based lifestyle. What is Veganism? Veganism is a cruelty-free lifestyle that is completely plant-based which means they do not eat animal products such as meat, dairy, eggs, and honey. And some vegans do not purchase animal products whatsoever like leather or fur. While you don’t have to be completely vegan to celebrate World Vegan Month, eating more plant-based foods is better for you, the environment, and the animals. Here’s seven recipes you can try for World Vegan Month.
