5 Varied Vegan Recipes from Around The World

A vegan diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. It doesn’t have to mean sacrificing taste though as there are tons of clever and delicious vegan recipes to be discovered and here are just a few:
