Whether your looking to include more plants into your diet or want to experiment with a vegetarian/vegan diet it’s totally up to yourself! I have provided some of my favourite books, cookbooks, blogs, and Instagram accounts so you can gain amazing information and try out other awesome plant-based recipes.
If you have any questions about how I live a plant-based lifestyle please feel free to e-mail me on the ‘contact’ page on the blog/or through Instagram.
I hope some of these resources/cooking inspo come in handy for you!
I personally am not a huge fan of labels and let’s be real they’re everywhere… I however like to refer to myself as ‘plant-based’ because I do eat honey (occasionally) and a vegan diet does not. I feel that referring myself as plant-based leaves more of a grey area, rather than a vegan diet which everyone knows that the lifestyle does not include any animal products including honey. There are however many different ways to lead a vegan diet/lifestyle and everyone is different which is totally fine. I eat vegan all of the time but leave room for occasional slip-ups and mistakes by referring myself to plant-based; which I am comfortable with and establishing a positive relationship with food is so important to me as it should be for others.
Do what works for you and listen to YOUR body because it will tell you what it needs and wants. However, nobody can deny that incorporating more plant-based foods in your diet (while maintaining balance) is going to benefit you, the environment, and the animals!
