Being vegan means trying to do as little harm as possible. Vegans believe that animals are not ours to eat or use in any other way. The number of vegans is steadily growing worldwide. I just read that Heather Mills is thinking of going vegan like her husband Paul McCartney. Which reminds me of his famous quote “If slaughter houses had glass walls we would all be vegetarians”. It is our traditions that have blinded us to the inhumanity of it all.
Speaking of “Traditions” … There is a new cook book out in the stores “New Asian Traditions” by the Vegetarian Society (Singapore). I have tasted almost all of the dishes during the cooking and photo shooting sessions and can highly recommend this book. All the recipes are vegan and easy to prepare.
