Why go vegan?

A vegan diet—one that eliminates animal products of any kind—requires a little creativity in the kitchen. But the health benefits may be worth it: Nonvegan ingredients like dairy products and meat can be high in saturated fat and cholesterol, and eating a high volume of veggies is associated with a reduced risk for cardiovascular disease, several common cancers, and other chronic diseases. Even if you're not ready give up your Brie, try these vegan recipes that are just as tasty as they are healthy.

Jamaican rice and peas
Light coconut milk gives this Caribbean dish a creamy taste while still being vegan-friendly. But don't let the name of this recipe fool you: "Peas" are island-dweller slang for kidney beans, which add plenty of protein and fiber. Plus sprinkles of thyme, garlic, and allspice give this dish just the right amount of kick.
