It’s no surprise that the number of people turning vegan, especially young adults in their early or late twenties, is on the up. While some reasons for individuals making the switch are because it makes them feel better, it helps their skin, they feel healthier, or they’re on the movement to environmental sustainability claims, or animal conservation, it’s quite astonishing how becoming vegan is the new trend.
Veganism is one of the fastest-growing lifestyle choices of the moment, yet there’s still an idea that vegan food can be bland and tasteless. Well, that’s certainly not true. In fact, it’s all about how you cook your food – all about the flavors!
