We a group of food bloggers started a new event and named it as Vegan Thursdays, this event starts from today. The main motto of this event is to share vegan dishes from any cuisine. Most of our Indian foods are vegan, obviously most of our daily routine foods we make or eat are vegan without our knowlegde.
Veganism means abstaining from the use of animal products. Vegan peoples don't use dairy products,eggs,and any other animal derived substances like honey in their cooking.So we a bunch of food bloggers will be showcasing our vegan foods during thursdays, this event will held twice a month. We will be posting the first week's thursday and last week's thursday of every month. This Vegan Thursday dont have any theme and the choice of the recipes prepared by each blogger being part of this event depend upon their choice.
