Vegans are now spoilt for choice when it comes to doughnuts! Last year, Krispy Kreme released its first vegan glazed doughnut, and now it has launched three more amazing flavours: Fudge Brownie Bliss, Caramel Choc Delight and Apple Crumble.

Everything in moderation…
It is worth noting that a well-planned vegan diet is one of the healthiest ways of eating and is suitable for all ages. A balanced vegan diet should consist mostly of wholefoods – such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, pulses, and beans – with small amounts of more indulgent items, being consumed occasionally.

Whilst pre-packaged meat-alternatives, ready meals and the like are delicious, you may want to use this month as an opportunity to try your hand at cooking plant-based meals from scratch. This can be a lot cheaper than shop-bought versions. Animal Aid has a huge number of delicious vegan recipes for you to try – complete with step-by-step instructions, and instructional videos.
