India, in my opinion, is one of the most amazing countries in the world. The people are lovely, the culture is rich, the sun is hot and the food is amazing. But being vegan wasn’t as easy as I first thought. Although being a vego was no problem, the presence of butter, cheese and ghee (unpasteurised butter) became extremely difficult to avoid. Boycotting gluten was actually easier than Veganism, to my own surprise, and I didn’t get sick once – woohoo – (rare occasion).
After eating Indian for the past 60 meals (yes, I probably won’t be eating it again anytime soon), I think now I have a better understanding on how to avoid eating animal products and my good friend wheat. So I bring you my take on keeping your values in check by not eating other sentient beings when in India as well as being free from gluten. Enjoy
