When we first hear about veganism, there are many questions that arise, like “Where do vegans get their protein from?” or “What do vegans buy at the supermarket besides veggies?” Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Adopting a vegan diet is a very easy process, especially in India. Being compassionate towards animals has been a part of our Indian culture for decades and India is blessed with a wide variety of delicious food that is vegan by default. There are also a lot of options at the grocery store that are vegan by default.

At the same time, it’s always helpful when someone more experienced is there to guide you. This is especially true when you’re the only vegan in your family or social circle. And while the internet always comes in handy, a personal touch can feel very reassuring sometimes.
