“From creamy, dairy-free chocolate ice cream to meat-free chicken, all these innovative foods are making it easy for people to treat their taste buds without harming animals,” says PETA India Vegan Foods and Nutrition Specialist Dr Kiran Ahuja. “PETA India is recognizing these winners for dishing up the delicious vegan fare.”

According to PETA, in addition to sparing animals’ lives, eating vegan reduces the risk of suffering from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity; helps fight climate change by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions; and even helps prevent future pandemics.
