Hi everyone! 

Welcome to the wonderful and rewarding lifestyle of veganism. Whether you are here because you have just decided to switch to a vegan diet or looking for more recipes to add to your repertoire, you’ve come to the right place. I am all about making easy and healthy dishes that don’t take up too much effort or time. So, check out these links to some of my favorite vegan recipes. I’ve made almost all of these dishes over the years and can tell you that they are super easy and fun to make. Of course, you can change up items to fit your taste (and spice level).

And if you like this blog post, share it and spread the word about these amazing bloggers and authors. I will keep updating this post as I find more delicious recipes.
