  • Being vegan is great for the planet and for your health, but sometimes mealtime inspiration can be tricky. If you're in the market for new ideas we have you covered with this array of new and upcoming vegan cookbooks.

    Veganism has become an increasingly popular diet choice. People choose a vegan diet for all sorts of reasons, it could be for health reasons, the environment, for the animals or all of the above. You might choose to limit your meat intake and be a flexi-vegan, or just looking for a change. But whatever your motivation cutting out meat and dairy can be a real challenge, especially if you are used to cooking with them.

    There are heaps of new foods for vegans on the market, but these too can be a little boggling if you don’t know what to do with them!
