This March 20th we celebrate a day to raise awareness for animals; World Meat Free Day aims to educate and inspire people to eat a plant-based diet.
There are many prejudices about vegan diets; mainly that they are not nutritious or filling enough, and today we want to verify that this is not the case; To celebrate World Meat Free Day we want to invite you to taste two easy, nutritious and delicious recipes free of animal products.
This day was originally known as the Great American Meatout, which began in 1985 to promote an ethical, cruelty-free and non-violent diet to promote a healthier lifestyle, care for the environment and animals. Do you join the challenge?
