Did you know that 51% of Greenhouse Gas Emissions are from livestock production, compared to only 13% from all transportation combined? Animal agriculture is responsible for 91% of amazon rainforest destruction and it takes approximately 2,500 gallons of water to produce a pound of beef. A pound of brown rice can be grown using approximately 250 gallons of water and provides more servings. It all adds up! Every time you choose to eat a vegan or vegetarian meal it reduces the strain on our environment and lessens your carbon footprint.
That’s great incentive to give your Summer BBQ a makeover! Here are 5 great crowd-pleasing vegan recipes, just in time for grill season.
