I love the start of the year... as it means lots of people will be giving Veganuary a chance! What better way to start the year than doing something as great as trying Vegan!
Here are just a few of the many positive reasons to try vegan for a month...and hopefully longer!
A plant based diet is suuuuuper healthy!
Vegan food is colourful, DELICIOUS and guilt free! (no animals harmed in the making!)
Going vegan forces you to read the ingredients of your food...which can make you realise all of the weird/terrible ingredients that you didn't notice before! Giving you more control in what you put into your body.
A healthy vegan diet can help to mitigate and sometimes even reverse some of the worlds biggest health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancers.
Going vegan is great for the planet! Livestock accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than the combined exhaust from all transport! Also....have you ever thought about where all the livestock poop goes....
Going vegan saves LOTS of water! The amount of water needed to produce 1 pound of beef can range from 442 to a whopping 8000 gallons! 1,000 gallons of water are required to produce 1 gallon of milk!
And my favourite reason for a vegan life is that it prevents the torture, harm, abuse and murder of billions of animals every year! If you are an animal lover - live a lifestyle that doesn't hurt animals!
Experimenting with new vegan dishes is also really fun! Here is one of my favourite recipes to cook for a Friday night treat.... Tofu Nuggets
