Being a vegan… is not easy. Those are the words that come to mind when I hear the term vegan. The one thing about being vegan is the idea of living a very healthy, happy and long life. Vegans are people to admire because it is very difficult eating with a restricted diet. So this article is dedicated to those who are vegan and want to take this type of eating to the grill. My goal for today’s grilling guide is to generate delicious and easy vegan recipe ideas to help make your next bbq fun. It is not easy being a vegan, but it is definitely worth it because of all the benefits that come along with that type of lifestyle. Take some notes from this Lean Mean Grilling Guide because we are grilling vegan style!
What is a Vegan?
A vegan is someone who is truly disciplined when it comes to dietary restriction. Someone who follows a vegan diet restricts themselves from consuming anything that deals with the handling of animals. This includes diary, meats and eggs. Practicing veganism deals with the moral objection of how animals are treated and results in the change of dietary habits by not consuming animal products.
