Substitutes, the easiest way to make a change

No Animals Harmed, Vegan Cooking

Going through your fridge right now, there are probably animal products you consume daily without a second thought. Just take a look, there is probably butter, cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, mayo and creamer just to name a few.

By swapping out the above with vegan friendly alternatives you will be cutting down the cruelty, calories, cholesterol and fat. There are plenty of brands that do not contain animal ingredients and can be found in most supermarkets. Some supermarkets have a “natural foods” section, others mix these products in with the typical versions you are use to having.
