About a year and a half ago, I decided to go vegan. No meat. No dairy. No eggs. No animals products at all. The meat and dairy industries in particular do more harm to our environment and to our health than they do good. In fact, they account for over 50% of our greenhouse gas emissions (learn more here). Being the environmentally conscious person I am, I was determined to make it work, even though I was the most hardcore ice creaming-eating, pizza-loving girl you’d ever meet. It was only for websites like the one I’m about to address that saved me. I know most of the people reading this won’t believe me when I say this, but there are substitutes that taste like the real thing, and they’re healthier and better for the environment too!
My favorite food used to be lasagna. My mouth would water just thinking about ricotta cheese and pasta covered in a chunky red sauce. Being vegan, however, I choose not to eat ricotta cheese, or any cheese for that matter. This was a problem before I stumbled across this recipe for vegan lasagna which I encourage all herbivores and carnivores alike to try out. It was super easy to make and the cheese even fooled my meat and dairy loving sister.
This recipe, along with many others, make my vegan lifestyle so much easier, and I hope I can persuade people to think more about the environmental issues surrounding what they eat. Going vegan or even vegetarian is difficult in the society we live in because so much of our social experience involves eating dinner with friends or family, but difficult does not mean impossible.
If anyone has questions about the recipe, other recipes, or what it’s like to be vegan in general, feel free to leave a comment!
