The question is not, “Do you like sweets?” The real question is, “Who doesn’t like sweets?” Sweets are a simple pleasure to enjoy after a meal or when you need a break from the day. However, sometimes it can be difficult to eat certain sweets, especially when you have food restrictions. One food restriction that can be limiting is being a vegan or following a vegan diet. There are many reasons for eating vegan. Maybe you are mindful of animals. Maybe certain foods that are nonvegan mess with your digestion. Or you could simply want to eat cleaner at times. Whatever your reason, following a vegan diet is not terrible. It can just make your options limiting, especially with desserts. Thankfully, Aglow Lifestyle offers some incredible vegan options.
