Go vegan in 2017
The start of a new year. Fresh beginnings and the chance for you to reflect and make major changes to your lifestyle. There’s no better change than to make the decision to go vegan in 2017. Here’s 4 major reasons you need to switch up your lifestyle and make radical changes to be a better human.
For all the lovely animals
Pigs are smarter than dogs. They’re even smarter than your 3 year old child. All animals deserve a right to life and aren’t on the planet just to please your taste buds or ‘fashion sense’. There’s vegan leather, faux fur and some pretty damn good food so the only thing you’ll be missing out on is a guilty conscience.
Improve your health
Weight loss – tick. Lower risk of developing heart disease – tick. Clearer skin – tick. Increased sense of well-being and total absence of guilt about what you’re eating – tick! Eating vegan and removing animal products from your diet is the best way to improve your short term and long term health.
If you go vegan in 2017 it can reverse diabetes, reduce your chances of heart disease, cancer and obesity. In fact, vegans are shown to live longer than both omnivores and vegetarians. Hit our health and fitness tab to read more about the benefits of eating vegan.
Vegan food is delicious
There’s something about living consciously and ethically that just makes eating vegan even better. We don’t eat leaves and carrots. We live in abundance and have so many delicious meals and snacks. For everything you love in your diet now there’ll be an equal or better vegan alternative. Trust me. Go and try some of these so you can see what I mean.
As it is, the planet’s fucked. The only thing we can look forward to is deforestation, draught, global warming and world hunger. Not to mention a whole host of other issues. Stopping climate change is a pretty major priority for the human race right now – and the UN says we can do it by going vegan, because factory farming is wrecking our environment.
Going vegan is the number one thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint and reduce the effects of climate change. The animal agriculture industry contributes more to the destruction of our environment than anything else.
