Veganism for People Who Love Eating

One of the questions I am most often asked about a vegan diet is “What do you eat?”. My immediate answer is usually “Plants.”, although to many that means a sad boring salad.

It is easy to focus on what you can’t have rather than everything you can have when it comes to any restrictive diet. Here are just a few¬†examples of delicious vegan foods.
