Vegan snacks for beginners


Reasons for starting a vegan diet can be different – excess weight, poor health, the fatigue of the body because of eating meat and similar heavy foods, conscience and desire to care more about nature and animals or, ultimately, a worldwide trend. The most important thing for vegan beginners is to choose the right moment to change their diet and the right combination of everyday foods.

Fruits and vegetables are great choices but don’t forget nuts, seeds, cereals (especially gluten-free) and legumes.

Here are some recipes, made to help your transition to a vegan diet.
