Vegan Dairy & Egg Alternatives

A lot of people think that to be vegan, you have to give up all of the things that you love. My face scrunches up every time someone says “give up”. Those are two separate words that should never be put together in the same sentence, because of the negative connotation. In terms of eating,…
