On Apr. 22, 2017, the entire world will be celebrating the one thing they have in common — living on this planet. Earth Day is a day to celebrate the beautiful earth that we all exist on day-after-day. So what better way to celebrate the existence of the Earth than eating foods that treat the Earth with special care? This year, celebrate with one of these vegan Earth Day recipes that are full of all types of natural ingredients and spices that you will absolutely adore even if you aren't a vegan on days that are not Earth Day.
To celebrate the Earth is to appreciate all that it gives us — food included.
