Should You Go Vegan?

Have you ever considered going vegan? Considering the massive problems that the earth has faced because of people consuming meat and disturbing the food chain, and the health benefits of going vegan, many people have started choosing this as their new way of life. Vegans not only avoid all food products that come from animals, but they also avoid anything that is derived from animals like dairy, leather, or fur. If you have considered going vegan, then you will be happy to know that it may actually be worth your while.

Every vegan spares up to 30 animals in their lifetime and reduces the burden on an industry that creates a lot of carbon waste. They reduce the burden on oceans where current fishing practices have endangered a lot of species of fish. If crops were produced only for human consumption instead of feeding to animals and then consuming meat, then that would be a huge step toward solving world hunger. You might be thinking that there may be a lot of advantages for the planet if you go vegan but maybe it isn’t as good for your own personal health.

 

This is not true. A purely vegan diet can be just as healthy as one that contains meat. Beans, chickpeas, lentils, tofu, tempeh, soya chunks, and seitan are perfect alternatives for the protein that you get in meat. As far as diversity on the menu is concerned, vegan diets now contain vegan cheese and dairy as well as vegan meat. As more and more people turn vegan, companies are trying to provide for the increased demand by creating delicious new items on the menu. If you think you’re up for the challenge and are interested in saving the planet and making a difference then it might be time for you to go vegan.
