Ever heard of World Vegan Day? Trust us, it’s thing. Every year around the beginning of November, potluck celebrations are had, memorial trees are planted, and stalls are set up to highlight the benefits of veganism.
We love it! And you don’t have to be a vegan to appreciate it. We want to help you learn more about the vegan lifestyle and how you can celebrate it where you are.
First, our top five vegan recipes, straight from the Lifesum app.

1. Tomato and Cilantro Stuffed Avocado 

Take less than 30 minutes to make, lots of healthy fat, and under 500 calories!

2. Chocolate Avocado Truffles 

The perfect dessert. Creamy, naturally sweet, and with a healthy dose of protein!

3. Vegetable Tagine with Split Peas 

So this recipe will take you about an hour to put together – but the rich and comforting flavors make it all worth it!

4. Colorful Chickpea Salad 

Just because your salad is vegan doesn’t mean it has to be boring! This bright salad is a great source of protein and is rich in antioxidants.

5. Lightly Spiced Summer Vegetables 

Turns out, we’ve been cooking our veggies all wrong for centuries. Steaming them and adding a pinch of salt is a recipe for quick veggie boredom – try this instead: quickly boiling, blanching and frying your veggies in a spiced oil – delicious!

And now, a few ways you can participate in World Vegan Day:

Attend a Vegan Love Cookout

You’ll get to hear from nutritionists, see cooking demos, and hear various health presentations.

Try a vegan cooking class
This is a great way to explore veganism. You’ll learn all about the various ways to enjoy good food and still eat vegan!

Try making your own vegan beauty products
Start simple. What about making a face scrub or making your own hair oils? Veganism is about more than what you do or don’t eat.

How are you going to celebrate?
