“Eating vegan” is no longer the polarizing concept it once was, and it's not just full-time vegans who are interested in plant-based meals. Veganism appeals to some from a health, environmental, or political perspective. And many others may choose to prepare a vegan recipe just occasionally. Maybe you’re baking a birthday cake for a loved one, or adding more whole grains and vegetables to your diet. Or maybe you're simply intrigued by the ingredients and flavors in vegan cuisine.
Whatever your reasons—and whether you’re a full-time, part-time, or occasional vegan—this guide, which features information from our cookbook Vegan for Everybody, includes everything you need to know about eating according to the vegan diet.
