It can be a little bit overwhelming going vegan. Leaving behind a life of meat, you're suddenly thrust into a world that's solely full of fruits and vegetables (as well as meat substitutes, of course!).
However, there are some great vegan buys in shops across Dubai that make things easier.
We've rounded up our favourites – whether it's to make crunchy fruit or to slice your vegetables into curly ribbons. Let's get shopping.
You know the crunchy bits of banana you get in your muesli? That’s what a dehydrator is for. The appliance circulates warm air around stacked trays to allow water to evaporate easily and simultaneously – ideal for when your well-intentioned fruit shop is on its way out.
