Veganism is on the rise in Australia! By definition, veganism is a way of living that looks to exclude all forms of exploitation and cruelty to animals. It promotes the use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of the animals, humans and the environment. A recent Oxford University study this year found that consuming a vegan diet may be the “single biggest way” to reduce your environmental impact on earth. Cutting out animal products from your diet doesn’t have to be difficult and intimidating. Recent research also indicates that Australia will continue as the third fasted growing vegan market in the world. Celebrate Veganuary this January by trying this delicious sweet recipe.
