cooking vegan ingredients
Cooking vegan meals is not complicated, it’s super healthy and every vegan meal you eat makes a positive contribution to our environment. There are many food trends and diets that continue to pop-up and sometimes they can be confusing. But I see it as a great way to explore what fits best with your lifestyle. I am a HUGE fan of choices. Having the ability to chose between different diets and food styling trends allows for a solid creativity flow.
Curry spices are so much fun to experiment with and the colours are simply beautiful. During the autumn season curries are so comforting. Living in Vancouver curries are a must during the autumn and winter season.

In Indian cooking, these top spices are often key to curry making:
