Now vegan means vitality and vibrant taste! A simple definition: The vegan diet consists exclusively of foods from the vegetable kingdom and excludes all animal products—meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, dairy, and honey—as well as products which are processed using animal ingredients.

Good health and great flavor have finally come together! Whether you're a full-time vegan or simply looking for an occasional "ideal" meal—one low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in health-enhancing nutrients and great taste—here is your definitive source for easy and innovative vegan cooking.

It's proven that eating an abundance of foods from the vegetable kingdom leads to a healthier—and perhaps longer—life. But healthful eating doesn't have to be bland and boring!
