The Vegan Way: Recipes for all Seasons!

Before getting into the REAL stuff *heart eyes* – the recipes, let’s quickly have a word about the first word – ‘Vegan’.

Veganism is a way of life that has animal love/life at heart. It through all means, puts in efforts to care for and not harm animals in any way. It is built on the themes of right to and freedom of life and with the purpose of   

While you must have heard of this very term in context of food, it today, stretches beyond that. Shoes, candles, soaps, belts, bags, clothes, and for all things more, use of animals, animal skin or flesh or in any way for human needs (well, wants*!) is a no no. 

Among all, vegan diet nearly gains the most buzz. An absolute trend these days! It basically avoids consumption of any animal or anything coming from animals. To name some:

  • Butter
  • Cream
  • Milk (cow or goat’s), other dairy products
  • Cheese (cow or goat’s)
  • Eggs
  • Honey
  • Beef
  • Pork
  • Lamb
  • Meat
  • Chicken
  • Duck, other poultry
  • Fish
  • Crabs
  • Clams
  • Shrimps
  • Lobster, other seafood
  • Gelatin

Now, don’t let this list scare you. Common reasons for people to not take the Vegan road are the “limited options”, “less tasty” and more. But it’s not quite so. (Trust me!)

While veganism limits many of your usual everyday eats, but that doesn’t AT ALL means you have to stop having these. No because there are alternatives. YES! And so many! Some perfect alternatives others even better! 

Now that we are clear and hopefully convinced with the idea of going the Vegan Way, scroll through some of the yummiest recipes, divided according to what suits what season.
