Veganism opens doors
“Veganism means everything” to Scarlett (@scarlettvfit). “The fact that every day I can nourish my body with whole-plant foods that make me thrive, improve my fitness and make me feel my best whilst knowing that no harm or cruelty has occurred to provide me with the food on my plate is truly something you can never experience unless you go vegan!”
Some say veganism is restrictive.
I have discovered so many foods I had never heard of before and as a result, now have an abundance of flavours that I create healthy and delicious recipes with!” Have a look at some of the tasty recipes in her Plantiful Plate ebook.
Veganism opens your eyes
For Bekah, also known as @bitesbybekah, veganism really opened her eyes to the world of food. “I have been following a vegan lifestyle, as best I can, for just over three and a half years now. It all started when I decided to completely change my diet overnight and began eating a plant-based vegan diet. I had never really thought about where my food came from before, but when I learned about the great impact my food choices can make, both on myself, as well as on the world, I knew it was the right change for me.”
I immediately fell in love with the vibrant foods, discovering new recipes and creative ways of putting together meals. This journey has made me more mindful of the consumer choices I make, looking for more natural and sustainable products.
I’m certainly not perfect, but no one is! I think it’s about doing the best we can, given the capacity that we have.
Food is also such a personal thing. For me, this way of eating can be incredibly abundant and nourishing, and I love how it benefits not just my own health but also that of the world around me.”
Celebrate with Food
Bekah will be celebrating World Vegan Month with warming and delicious meals. She is hooked on warming Turmeric Porridge Bowls, as well as her Easy Vegan Sweet Potato Curry, Super Simple Miso Soup, and Sweet Potato Chilli with Golden Cornbread! You can find all her recipes on her website!
And while you’re having a look, it is important to remember that vegan food isn’t just about the recipes. Erika Naomi reminds us that sharing food and recipes is also a more compassionate and sustainable option. You don’t have to compromise on taste at all!
Coconut is a great vegan alternative and with a focus on the upcoming festive season, there is a lot that you can do with the humble coconut. Think vegan frosting, vegan condensed milk, vegan whipped cream, vegan chocolate magic shell and more! You can find some coconut recipe inspiration online.
Whether or not you are vegan or thinking about it, there is no better time to celebrate than November 2019. Make this years celebrations one to remember with tasty treats, sharing with friends and family and educate yourself with the latest documentaries and books. There is no better time than NOW!
