Vegan Baking – sweet and healthy!

IMG_1694You don’t have to be vegan to love Vegan Noms baked goods!  Our treats are super-yummy for any tummy, but just in case you’d like to know a little more about being vegan…

Vegans don’t eat anything of animal origin, and don’t use animal products in clothes or cosmetics, either.

Sometimes, we make this lifestyle choice because we love animals and do not want to contribute to their use as food items; sometimes because we are concerned about the environment; and sometimes to improve our health.  Sometimes our decision to be vegan comes from all these factors.

The health benefits of eating vegan are well-documented.  Vegans tend to be leaner, have more energy, and live longer.  Our plant-based diet emphasizes fruits and veggies, grains, beans and legumes and nuts—rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients.  These naturally nutritious foods, served in ways that maintain freshness and raw goodness, can help prevent heart disease, obesity and many other afflictions.
