Because eating plant-based foods like fruit and veggies can improve your health so significantly that they can actually prevent and even reverse high cholesterol, cancer, and obesity, as well as other common ailments such as heart disease and diabetes.

You can take charge of your health by avoiding animal products and eating more vegetarian foods. Start now with this easy and delicious recipe (below) by the Ten Minute Vegan!
