Vegan Food

I was always a vegetarian but turned vegan two years ago. It was a decision I made after watching a documentary on the treatment of farm animals. It broke my heart and I quit egg and dairy overnight.

If you’re new to a vegan lifestyle, please make sure to include a variety of veggies, fruits and fibre into your diet. Also, include a vegan-friendly multivitamin (and/or iron pill especially for females) into your daily supplements. See a doctor before making any major changes. The last thing you want is to be nutrition deprived.
