One misconception about following a vegan diet is that we only eat boring and tasteless food such as lettuce and carrots, dubbed ‘rabbit food’. True, our eating habits revolve around plants, however you would be surprised how many options there are when it comes to creating mouthwatering dishes that will leave you wanting more. Don’t believe me? Simply head down to your local vegan counter or restaurant and you will see how much variety there is to choose from! From black bean burritos, to herb-filled falafels, to elaborate pasta dishes, vegan food is extremely palatable when prepared with gusto and love. As someone who has been plant-based for nearly two years, I can tell you the possibilities are truly endless. Some of you may know that I actually started off my plant-based lifestyle by eating 100% raw and switched back to cooked foods a few months later, so I’ve first-hand experienced all that plants have to offer, both in their raw and cooked form. I love coming across new vegan-friendly restaurants and recipes which I enjoy recreating myself as evidenced through my Instagram, hence I thought I would dedicate a post sharing my top vegan cookbooks, namely Vegan Everyday: 500 Delicious Recipes by Douglas McNish*, The Vegan Cook’s Bible by Pat Crocker* and 350 Best Vegan Recipes by Deb Roussou*.
