There are hundreds (perhaps thousands) of yummy, cruelty-free menus out there and many organizations and individuals who are willing to help you go plant-based (for example, here)!

I hope to whet your appetite and inspire you to give one (or all) of these recipes a try, or find some of your own. There’s enough great plant-based food out there to make you not miss eating dead animal parts or their secretions! Below are some of my favorite “go to” resources.
