The vegan lifestyle has become crazy popular in recent years with proponents advocating it as “kind” lifestyle. With restrictions on animal products of all kinds it seems crazy to a carnivore like myself that sustaining a vegan diet could be possible, I mean c’mon, you can’t even have cheese. What kind of life is that? After much deliberation and a considerable amount of time searching through vegan food blogs I managed to round up alternative recipes that even I would eat. Some of these recipes sound so delicious that you might not even miss the meat or dairy. Maybe. Let’s not get too crazy. Either way this post goes out to the vegans out there livin’ that kind life and helping to save those animals one meal at a time.
Mac & Cheeze
Mac and Cheese without the cheese. Isn’t that just Mac then?
Recipe: Vegan Yum Yum
Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup
The “cream” is really cashews soaked in water. Apparently it’s the same thing as milk. Kinda.
Recipe: Joy the Baker
Sushi Roll Edamame Salad
Basically a sushi roll that’s been unrolled, chopped up and thrown together minus the fish and topped with Foodbeast’s favorite condiment, Sriracha.
Vegan Big Mac
Yes, even vegans sometimes miss the taste of an American classic, a McDonalds Big Mac. Revamped with some vegan friendly substitutions including American “cheese” this seems like a suitable alternative. Or you could just break down and get a real one. Your call.
Spaghetti No-s With Mini Lentil Meatballs
For your inner child that used to eat meat this is the 100% animal product free version of that canned classic you know and love.

Completely raw and vegan these impressive no bake chocolate lava cakes have all the frills and thrills of the real thing, including the chocolate oozing out of the middle. *drool*
