Vegan Day 2020 Recipes- This World Vegan Day, let's take a hard look at stripped down healthy eating. One that cuts out all kinds of animal produce like meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk, and even cheese. Over the last few years, 'veganism' has become a common phenomenon. But its not just reserved for the rich and famous anymore. It has trickled down to the common man. One who wants to restrict what he eats to what he can trust.

Veganism is usually adopted for one of two reasons: either it's dietary or ethical. Either way, its a sure shot way to cleanse the mind, body and soul. Animal products are known to be high on saturated fat, cholesterol and are frequently being linked to obesity. On the other hand, plant-based food is cholesterol free, lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart disease. It's no wonder the trend is catching on.

But what about protein, iron and B12? Vegan replacements are slowly, but gradually making their way to market shelves and promise to provide all the necessary proteins and minerals. If you find this an expensive proposition, there are some other things you can do: replace regular milk with soya milk, and cottage cheese with tofu.

If you feel that you don't have the appetite to give up on animal based products for a long period of time, then you could even try it for a day or two. This will help throw off the extra calories you bulked up on at last night's pot luck dinner. And if your worry is that vegan food is dull, uncool and boring then think again. This world vegan day, we have got you covered with some of the best vegan recipes to try at home.

We bring to you 5 mind blowing recipes that will change the way you think about vegan food forever.
