Did know that this month (November) is World Vegan Month? I just found that out myself. I think I could easily become vegan because I eat very little meat in my life, and would gladly give it up entirely.
Whether you maintain a plant-based diet, are a total carnivore or have any diet in between, you'll love these easy and balanced vegan options! From meal kits and meat alternatives to protein-rich pastas, snacks and powders, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
COOKING & BAKING:
