Vegan is considered as the diet of the future, one that will fix all wrongs to one’s health, one that will reverse heart disease, reverse diabetes, reverse hypertension, reverse certain cancers and even help one to lose weight. The reason for this is simple. Vegans tend to eat healthier than vegetarians. Just by not consuming any animal products they gain many points. And add to that the different super foods consumed by vegans like seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, melon, sesame, flax, hemp), berries (goji, cranberries, raisins, rasberries), nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashew, pecan, macadamia, hazel), whole grains (like the many different types of millets, brown, black, wild and red rice, amaranth, quinoa), beans (pinto, kidney, baked, chickpeas, black eyed beans, black beans, etc), all the vegetables and fruits possible. And it is these foods which form the core of our recipes.
What is the biggest benefit of being vegan? The chance to eat healthy wholesome, whole grain, whole foods. And to be fitter, to be lean and trim, to have good quality of blood. Veganism is a lifestyle marked by simplicity and elegance and vegan food means food that promotes clarity, vigor and stability.
