Vegan diet is healthy and nutritional that contains less fats and high amounts of fibers. It includes plant-based foods such as legumes, seeds, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and vegetables. Milk can be replaced by rice milk or soy milk in a vegan diet. Vegan cakes are ideal for people who are allergic to milk or eggs.
