Did You Know You Can Consume These Food Items Even If You Turn Vegan?

Over the past few years, there seemed to have spread a storm of veganism around us. Amongst everyone would know of at least one person who has turned vegan. But what exactly is Veganism? Let’s understand this first.

Veganism is a practice that includes consumption of all plant-based food and avoiding any food which is sourced from animals. Basic examples being – avoiding meat, dairy, etc. While there are various degrees and types of veganism, this is the basics about Veganism.

Off late, there have been rumours and assumptions around Veganism and people have stereotyped typed it to something which voids a person of ‘good food’. While almost all animal lovers or people who want to see certain kinds of changes in their health want to follow veganism, this stereotype of Veganism not having good food options in it has stopped such people from following the path. Another reason could be that they are foodies and food is the source of their happiness.

Looking at the health benefits of people who chose to turn vegan;

According to studies and research, those who have turned vegan show less chance of getting high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes or other heart related disease. Also, veganism also helps in preventing a person from types of cancers including breast and ovarian cancers. While there are health benefits, there are still a lot of myths around the do’s and don’ts when it comes to food consumption.

Busting all myths around veganism taking you away from good food, here are the five types of foods which you can still eat even if you have or are deciding to turn vegan.

After living in Delhi for five years or less, it is a must that you will fall in love with paneer as much as you love your rice. And leaving paneer can be a nightmare especially for people living in North India. Tofu becomes the best substitute and makes sure you don’t miss your paneer. It in fact adds on to the benefits and gives you the goodness of soy.
