Karina Sher decided to embark on Vegan eating in October 2016 and has enjoyed the transition so much that she is currently writing a recipe book and hopes to release it in 2017/2018. Above some of the foods she will be including in the recipe book.
She will also be creating a site to see how good vegan eating can be and how to enjoy cruelty free food.
Not only does she have a guilt free conscious but she also has lost 2 and a half stones since switching to vegan eating.
"There are many substitutes for meat, fish, milk, butter, cheese and even egg now. I think it's about awareness. I would rather the food I put in my mouth hasn't harmed an animal in any way."
Animals were not born to be locked up and then slaughtered for our consumption. Human beings are simply not actual predators. We don't go and tear an animal in cold blood and rip it apart and eat it raw. Predators do that like lions for example. We have to cook the food to eat it. Dairy milk comes out of a cow for their young not for human beings. You can gain all your protein and vitamins on a healthy vegan diet with mock meats and with dairy free products plus you stop animal cruelty. I sleep with clear conscience because ethics come over ego and good vegan food tastes amazing.
