Vegan Recipe Swaps for 'New Year, New You'

2017 could be the year "veganism" goes mainstream - already over 16 million people in the U.S. eat zero animal products and many more are adding non-dairy to their diets. According to a survey from Califia Farms and Berrycart, 56% of omnivores consume plant-powered alternative dairy beverages, like almond milk, several times a week, with nearly one in four (23%) consuming them every day.

According to a recent survey by the Nutrition Business Journal:
  • 13% of consumers associate vegan products with cleaner ingredients
