4 Healthy Vegan Recipes

Updated on February 6, 2017

There are a lot of reasons why we should choose a vegan diet. It is not only good for improving our health, but it's also good for our environment and morals, of course. A plant-based diet must have plenty of vegetables, nuts and seeds, legumes, beans, whole grains, and fresh fruits because they are rich sources of vitamins and minerals, like zinc, iron, magnesium, and folic acid. Besides, vegan foods are low in saturated fats and cholesterol.

Here I want to share my 4 healthy vegan recipes. They are very easy to cook and good for your health.
