World Vegan Month

| Burlington County Library

Thankfully, eating plant-based has come a long way from where it used to be and plant-based folks can now pretty much enjoy all of the same delicious meals that non-plant-based people can – except, of course, those meals don’t contain any meat or dairy. It’s wild to discover different recipes or culinary creations that emulate burgers, fish or eggs, but they exist and they are delish! Don’t believe it? Try some awesome recipes from the cookbooks below and see for yourself! And if you have a sweet-tooth, here’s a tasty recipe for some gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies, a staff favorite! 

If you’re looking for more information about why vegan or plant-based people take this route, check out any of these movies on Kanopy:

These films may give you a glimpse into the reasons behind this lifestyle, including health, animals, and the environment.

Additional information may be found on our Health Source: Consumer Edition database, which enables you to browse through articles from magazines and reference books, watch informational videos, and more using the search keyword “vegan.”

Whatever you read, watch or cook up in the kitchen, we hope you learn something new while taking part in this fun celebratory month!
