The food industry is not oriented towards veganism; so it can be something of a challenge to create vegan dishes that are tasty and yet not terribly complicated.

Then, why not have a look at some tasty vegan party appetizer ideas ...



If for ethical or health reasons, you want to embrace a vegan lifestyle, transitioning to a vegan diet is probably going to be a daunting prospect.

Humans unthinkingly use so many animal products for nothing but vanity – animal products become a part of one’s wardrobe without so much as a thought for what that animal endures in order to feed human vanity. Animals are slaughtered for their pelt, leather, silk, wool, feathers and what not. Here, we look at the ten poor animals that are most commonly killed for clothing: 1. Silk Worms It is a well known fact that silk worms are ...



One of the charges often leveled against veganism and even vegetarianism is that these are low protein diets that are inadequate for optimal athletic performance. Athletes engaged in sports that require muscle building, strength and physical power may not be adequately served by a non-meat diet, it is thought.
