1. You are saving your planet

Did you know that in order for you to eat meat, it requires a lot of effort for the meats to be produced? Each driven by the expansion of livestock farming and the intensive production of animal feed.

A lot of livestock had to be fed and taken care of regularly. A recent report by animal welfare charity Viva! describes how the production of meat and dairy food is having a disastrous impact on biodiversity through overgrazing, deforestation, land degradation and desertification.

So to help your planet, time to switch to plant-based diet.

Vegan has been proven to be a healthier option and has a more positive impact on your life than meat-eaters. Some researches say that vegans are on average 20lbs lighter than meat-eaters, and time and time again major studies find that those eating a plant-based diet live longer.

4. Do it to protect the animals

For centuries, dogs, cats are seen as pets for their domestic ways and intelligence but did you know that farm animal are highly intelligent as well and maybe even way more than our pets, with the ability to feel emotions, recognise faces and form friendships.


5. You have to be the change

6. It is more than just a diet

Going vegan isn’t just about the cutting out of meat, fish, eggs, honey and dairy. It’s also the ideal time to reassess your life choices such as your new wardrobe, your relationship with food and the environment as well as your way of living.


7. You can save money

You've heard that eating healthy is expensive right? Yeah, we all heard that. But that is, in fact not true.

Going vegan helps you to save a lot more money than buying meat products and seafoods. Buying vegetables from local markets and fruits is always the best choice.

You can save some frozen fruits and buy a bunch of nuts to stock up which can use later for your juices and smoothies as well as for occasional snacking.
