Recipes to make you healthy

Foods from animal flesh, milk or eggs cause high cholesterol and inflammation that lead to heart disease, cancer, stroke, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes, among other problems.

Vegan food is measureably much healthier. Live longer, healthier lives and protect the planet by going vegan. See a 12-minute video called A Life Connected, or a 2-page piece "Go Green" on it and share with friends! We include some recipes here so you can feel empowered and able to go vegan yourself. They are generally organized by international regional cuisines or types of food.
