Vegetarian and vegan cuisines
It is easy to notice that an increasing number of people on the planet are becoming vegetarians, vegans and raw foodists (recent trends also tell us about Fruitarianism, Liquidarianism and even Prano-eating). Despite the fact that some supporters of orthodox medicine still claim that a person cannot live without animal proteins, recent research in progressive scientific circles declares: the use of meat in developed countries leads to serious diseases: cancer, cardiovascular and other diseases.
Let's figure out what vegetarianism is, and how is it different from veganism?
Vegetarian cuisine has several varieties and is generally characterized by the absence of slaughter food (meat, fish, poultry, seafood of animal origin and all products made from them). Depending on the type of vegetarianism, some of the following foods may or may not be present in vegetarian cuisine: dairy products, eggs, honey.
Vegan cuisine excludes all animal products.
