The Vegan Pastry Free From Gluten, Eggs And Butter.

The WHO (World Health Organisation) has recently warned about the potential for certain meats such as sausages and salami to contain carcinogenic (cancer-causing) compounds. They have made similar observations in regards to other forms of processed meat. While some claim that this statement caused undue alarm and even controversy within certain scientific circles, there is no doubt that public belief is still split between those who continue to eat processed meats and those who prefer a vegan diet rich in whole grains. What options are available and why are they becoming increasingly popular?

The Healthy Options to Embrace

As in most cases, common sense dictates that we should find a middle road; a balance between a healthy diet and one defined by excess consumption. Of course, a vegan lifestyle never equates to compromising the nutritional content of our foods or their taste. It is a plan which we should all follow; particularly at an early age. It is critical for children to learn the importance of a balanced diet to help avoid future conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. Most of these ailments literally begin right at the table. It is also a well-known fact (backed up by scientific research) that a minimal consumption of animal proteins can positively effect our health from a long-term perspective. Thus, many foods rich in substances such as eggs and butter are now being replaced with plant-based alternatives. Not only will the flavour be retained, but such options can very well open us up to an entirely new kaleidoscope of tastes. Let us take a look at some examples.

The Ubiquitous Pastry

One of the most famous examples of a common base for foods can be seen in the pastry. Employed when preparing pies, cookies and countless desserts, modifying the traditional contents of a pastry is a great start for those who are hoping to enjoy a more vegan diet. As mentioned previously, these recipes are nearly devoid of all animal proteins and instead, they make use of wholemeal flour and other healthy ingredients. It should also be mentioned that vegan pastries are great for those who are lactose intolerant. As this condition is on the rise throughout the world, it makes sense that vegan pastries are becoming very popular. Thankfully, the recipe itself is quite simple. Let's take a look at how vegan pastries can be easily prepared at home.
