Though the world still remains fast, people are slowly shifting from the fast food culture that had been their way of life for the past decade. It is certainly a welcome change and people, especially the city folk, are becoming increasingly aware of the hazards caused by eating junk foods. Actually, many of them who had fast foods from morn till night, have had enough by now and are planning to strict vegetarianism due to health reasons such as obesity. Wondering how your kitchen is going to look different in the ‘changed world’?
A vegan kitchen is one, which is generally focussed on health and well-being. Though the pantries of such a kitchen lack many packets, which ‘meat eaters’ are used to seeing, it might outsmart the other in terms of quality of nutrition.
A vegetarian kitchen, however shares certain common elements with that of a non-vegan kitchen such as canned foods, seasonings, rice, oatmeal, cereals etc. But, most of labels pasted on them will read, “organic”, “vegetarian”, “vegan”, “whole grain”, “gluten free” or something else that is health-oriented.
Dried and canned beans are sure to take a permanent room in your kitchen shelf. Your body will demand more beans as they contain almost all the nutrients, which was otherwise provided to you by meat.
Nutritional Yeast is yet another thing that you will start searching for at stores. You are sure to appreciate it for its versatile nature and nutritional value. It contains almost all forms of Vitamin B complex and mineral salts such as iron in abundant quantities. Plant –based oils that you will get used to include olive oil, grape-seed oil and coconut oil.
Fruit tray of the refrigerators will not be much different but vegetable tray will be greener. Of course, frozen meat items will be absolutely absent and your chill tray will be a storehouse of frozen vegetable stuffs.
