5 hearty autumnal vegan meals to try this month

November is World Vegan Month, a time when plant-based eaters from across the globe come together to celebrate their lifestyle, educate, and share recipes. 

A vegan, or plant-based lifestyle, has many health benefits, especially for Latinos who are prone to suffer from health issues such as high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. Statistically, Latinos are also more likely to suffer from heart disease. On average,  Hispanic women are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than non-Hispanics, according to data from Go Red for Women.

Incorporating more plant-based dishes into one’s diet can help reduce these risks over time by reducing the consumption of meat and dairy, often found in many traditional Hispanic recipes. 

As the colder months approach here in the Northern hemisphere, we’re all looking for some warm, hearty comfort foods to get us through the autumn and winter. Below are a few autumnal vegan meals to try out this month from The Vegans Club on Instagram.
