If you are a vegan or have vegan friends or family, you should know that February is dedicated to all things vegan. As most people know, being vegetarian or vegan aims to reduce human and animal suffering and leave a habitable planet to future generations.
Both vegetarians and vegans choose not to include meat and fish; however, veganism is a stricter form of vegetarianism. It prohibits the consumption or use of any products from animals, including dairy, eggs, honey, leather goods, wool, and silk. During this modern age, vegans have become an ever-increasing craze for people to join.
For Vegan Cuisine Month we’re discovering what you can do to make your favourite foods vegan and cruelty-free.
Vegan Cuisine Month
Many people might think that veganism is a new trend, but actually, Vegan Cuisine Month was started in 1965 by the American Vegan Society to help bring awareness to how easy it can be to switch from meat-eating to plant-eating. President Freya Dinshah, who wrote The Vegan Kitchen, explain veganism and give vegan recipes – she and her husband are seen as the founders of the vegan and vegetarian movements.
Freya and her husband host magazines for their members to read, cooking classes for vegans to take, and other various programs that keep their members up to date about veganism in today’s age. This month honours veganism through creating awareness and inviting people to try vegan and the variety of options available with vegan recipes.
