In fact, if I was super rich I would hire a vegan chef to cook all the meals I make for myself and my son Noah, age 10. Therefore my dinners require very little ingredients and not a lot of preparation or cook time.

Estimates of how much animal agriculture adds to greenhouse gases range widely, from about 14 to more than 50 per cent of total global emissions.

The history of ice cream is a messy one. No one has been credited with inventing ice cream, but many nations and individuals claim to have. Between its origins almost 2000 years ago and the present day, huge tweaks and changes have been made to the formula, bringing us to a present day where we may finally have created a healthy ice cream. But to know where we're going, we first need to know where we've been.

One of the great pleasures of travel is, of course, the different food options that are available at different destinations. But for those travelling with food restrictions -- allergies, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan or religious boundaries -- it requires some definite pre-planning.

I know, nobody wants to feel like a pain or an inconvenience to a restaurant or our dining partner. But the reality is that every time we cede to the salad, we are allowing people continue to believe that vegan food is dull, boring, tasteless and unfulfilling.

Cows are loving, motherly animals and hold a special place in Indian culture. When loved and treated well, they will happily give their excess milk to humans after their calves have had their fill. Dairy products are commonly used in Hindu rituals. I just could not get behind the vegan argument that drinking milk was fundamentally wrong.

Veganism isn't about deprivation or being extreme. It's about leaving animals off our plates.
