What is vegan?

A vegan dish is one that is free of any animal products including meat, dairy, and eggs.

Should I go vegan?

It is a preference! You can live a happy healthy life with a vegan or non-vegan diet. Many choose to go vegan for ethical or environmental reasons but at the end of the day the choice is yours.

Am I vegan?

Nope! I choose to include animal products in my diet because that is my preference. BUT there are many vegan meals I do enjoy eating :-)

Fonio Super Grain Bowl by me!

This is a gluten free whole grain that is sustain-ably cultivated in West African countries. And it could not be easier to cook…seriously.

It is high in methionine, cysteine and leucine amino acids, which are deficient in today’s major grains. It also boosts a higher amount of iron than most grains with 8.5mg per 100g. These qualities make fonio the perfect addition to your vegan diet!
