POPULAR VEGAN RECIPES FOR DINNERS, DESSERTS, APPETIZERS AND MORE TO FRESHEN UP AND ENHANCE ANY VEGAN DIET

More and more people are turning to vegan recipes and vegan foods as part of a Vegan Diet. But why is this, what are the health benefits, and of course – what are the on-trend, most popular recipes at the moment? Let’s take a look…

What is a vegan diet?

A vegan diet is one that consists only of plant-based foods. This means that vegans do not consume any foods that are or contain ingredients from an animal source, including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products, and honey.

The term vegan was coined in 1944 by Donald Watson when he co-founded the Vegan Society in England, at first to mean “non-dairy vegetarian” and later “the doctrine that man should live without exploiting animals.” 

Interest in veganism increased in the 2010s; vegan options became increasingly available in more supermarkets and restaurants in many countries. 

The term ‘vegan’ from the start and end of the word vegetarian.

Why do people choose a vegan diet?

Veganism is more than just a diet — it is a lifestyle choice. The vegan philosophy goes beyond what you eat to include what you wear and what products you use on your body. 

For example, vegans wear clothing made without animal products such as fur, leather, wool, and silk. They also avoid using personal care products tested on animals or made with animal products such as animal fat or honey.

However, today there are many reasons why people choose to be vegan. 

Some people adopt this way of eating to be more eco-friendly or for health reasons. Others believe it’s unethical to eat animals and avoid meat, poultry, seafood and animal byproducts for this reason. Whilst others choose a vegan diet for health benefits.

What are the health potential benefits of a vegan diet?

Vegans tend to be slimmer than nonvegans because they consume fewer calories. A plant-based diet has many health benefits, including a lower risk of obesity and chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. 

However, it is important to note that eliminating entire food groups may result in nutrient deficiencies. Therefore, people should speak with their doctor before making any dietary changes.

Environmental concerns

Some vegans believe that eating meat contributes to climate change because of the number of resources needed to support meat production. 

This includes the feed needed for animals; water for growing the feed; land for raising the animals; and energy for transporting the food to markets. 

For these reasons, some people choose vegan diets to reduce their impact on the environment.

What do people eat on a vegan diet?

A vegan diet may seem limiting at first, but it’s actually a delicious and diverse way to eat. Here are our favorite vegan recipes and cooking tips so you can enjoy the best the plant-based world has to offer.

A vegan diet contains only plants (such as vegetables, grains, nuts, and fruits) and foods made from plants. Vegans do not eat foods that come from animals, including dairy products and eggs.

Some vegans also avoid the use of all products tested on animals, as well as animal-derived non-food products, such as leather, fur, and wool.

Chris Cooper

Hi, My name is Chris. I found my love for cooking when I was younger. I worked as a pot washer in an Italian Restaurant and it did take long to be Inspired by the amazing chefs I worked with. The food they made was delicious and so different from anything I had before. I made the move up to commis chef and it didn’t take long until I was ready to progress to an assistant chef. I happily worked at the restaurant for 4 years soaking up as much information as I could. That was until life took over and 25 years of sales beckoned but this never to the love away from cooking. Using many a spare hour or two I spent years in the kitchen cooking and experimenting. I always found it hard to remember where I found recipes that I was making. no matter how long I spent going from website to website I always struggled to find the same recipe I loved. So many years later I have decided to make this website yournewfoods.com. I have found amazing recipes and organized them into easy sections so you can always find what you want. You will find many types of recipes here from quick weeknight meals to simple frozen air fryer meals and then some more involved recipes that will take longer to make and test your skills. I wanted to make sure that both beginners and more confident cooks can easily find delicious recipes without the frustrations of not being able to find them again. I have also found some stunning recipes that you may not be on bigger sites so if you are looking for something new and fresh then please feel free to have a look around. There literally are thousands of awesome recipes from around the world.
