Plant-based diets are rapidly gaining traction. You can now make scrambled eggs from a legume formula, Alfredo sauce from blended cashews and plant burgers that taste as meaty as they come. What’s not to love? Plant produce is easier on the stomach; plus, it doesn’t contribute to climate change nor potential heart diseases.
While meat and dairy alternatives are yet to hit stores in full swing, our list from Amazon has everything from vegan mayonnaise to almond milk for you to try. Experiment with a range of products before you truly commit to the delicious vegan lifestyle in 2022.
