From breads to cakes, make sure you are using the best vegan egg substitute in your favorite recipes. Here are 3 easy swaps you can use in any recipe!

We all had little quirks growing up, right? Weird things we ate or did that now seem totally crazy and kind of gross (well, they were in my case). As for me, I used to suck on lemons and eat chunks of butter right off of the butter knife (told you it’s gross!), but of course now, those habits seem totally crazy.
