Leading a plant based lifestyle has become common over the last decade, with many engaging in vegan diets for both ethical and health reasons. Once a less-prevalent diet to consume, plant based food has become the norm for many with delicious alternatives to animal products sold in most supermarkets across Australia and a booming market of cookbooks to boot.
