Why Go Vegan?
According to The Vegan Society, Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
There are many ways to embrace vegan living. Yet one thing all vegans have in common is a plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods such as meat (including fish, shellfish and insects), dairy, eggs and honey - as well as avoiding animal-derived materials, products tested on animals and places that use animals for entertainment.
Whoa that's 110%. I don’t like to refer to going Vegan as going on a Vegan diet. I like to say adapting a vegan meal plan or plant base meal plan.
In order for the food industry to deliver food product to the consumer's table that food product must be chemically altered and that were the problem lies. In my opinion these altered product is contributing to a majority of the health conditions we are experiencing today in USA. Saying that I will also have to warn you that the vegetables, fruits, nuts and other food source for the Vegan needs to be carefully chosen, clean and labels read to insure best choice. To gain a better understanding between to two food categories do your research with an open mind.
Many like my niece become Vegan as a protest to the exploitation of animals for any purpose, with compassion being a key reason many choose a vegan lifestyle. According to The Vegan Society, “from accessories and clothing to makeup and bathroom items, animal products and products tested on animals are found in more places than you might expect. Fortunately, nowadays there are affordable and easily sourced alternatives to just about everything. With over 30,000 products and services registered with the Vegan Trademark alone, living a vegan lifestyle has never been easier”.
According to Vegan.com “A vegan lifestyle is compatible with the highest levels of health and fitness, protects huge numbers of animals, and is a potent way to combat climate change. Plus, the food is insanely delicious, and it becomes more widely available every year.”
With that said is my web site being hypocritical, I'm not forcing anyone to become Vegan, I started working at becoming Vegan after my son-in-law sudden illness, after extensive research by my daughter and mandating an aggressive plant base meal plan my son-in-law health rebounded like a miracle. Since I have been on the plan for about two months, I have notice considerable improvement with my own health. GO Vegan!
