Transforming The “Better Meal” To “Vegan Diet”
From improving our daily meals by eating better foods that are healthier and more delicious, we're all aware of ways to live a healthier life. But, if we can transforming the way we eat from the “better meal” to “vegan diet”, not only it’s tasty and healthy, but also it’s good for the environment, and for the animals.
What does ‘better meal’ mean?
- A healthy diet: LESS processed food high in fat/salt/sugar, and MORE fruit and vegetables, whole grains.
- Quality food: Foods are procedured from sustainable ingredients that meet food safty and hygiene requirements.
A vegan diet is more meanful than “better meal”
According to The Vegan Society: "Veganism is a philosophy and 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; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."
With the definition of the “better meal” and “veganism”, we undestand that the “better meal’’ is not enough for all (people, planet & animals). While vegan diet make you healthier, make environment and animals are protected.
- Health Benefits: Vegan diets could reduce risk of stroke, high blood pressure, lower rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.
- Environment impact: Animal agriculture creates more greenhouse gases than the world’s entire transportation systems combined. A plant-based diet could significantly reduce this problem.
- For the animal welfare: Plant-based diets eliminate animal suffering while lowering demand for other animal food products
To conclude, this topic brings a new view about benefits of vegan diet. We hope you find something positive or simply inspiration to go and stay vegan. And start to think and understand about what we buy, cook and eat every day.
