Why Vegan Is Good?

Here are four reasons that make me cook and eat vegan, and most important – enjoy it:
Vegan is Healthy - Eating vegan and fresh food several times per week will make you lose weight, look better, be full of energy and feel better. Go back to the roots.
Vegan is more Sustainable - Conventional livestock farming is the most polluting, water using, greenhouse gases emitting and cruel industry humans have ever managed to create. And don’t give me that crap about pesticides and migrant workers picking the vegetables – buy seasonal (see recipes for autumn-winter, spring-summer or all season meals) and local products. It’s your choice who you’re giving your money to after all!
Vegan brings Cultures together - Vegan meals are dominant menu in all ancient cultures – from India and the Middle East, through South East Asia, the Americas, Europe and Africa.
Vegan is a Challenge - My first rule – never follow a recipe to the letter. Use your imagination and creativity, change it according to your personal taste, improvise and share your experience.
And here I am putting together a cookbook with easy vegan recipes and willing to share experience!

It is life choice everyone has to make for themself.
But if evolution is not mistaken than we actually evolved from being pure carnivors to omnivors which eat everything the body can digest properly.
If we were actually meant to be herbivores than we would have different jaw/teeth and digestive system ;)
The health side is something that is usally overstated like with any other hype out there.
A vegetarian or vegan is not a single bit healthier than someone having meat in the diet.
If you use the internet not just to find the benefits you will soon find people where being vegan went just totally wrong health wise...
With 5 friends that converted to green only I got enough insight over the years to say it is not what you eat but how you prepare and eat it!
One of my friends is what I like to call a racist vegan, refusing everything that can be in any way related to aninal origins.
And if anything is not 100% organic it is off limit as well.
After now 7 years he did loose a lot of weight, which he claims on the benefits of green, I claim it is the reduced calorie intake combined with no longer drinking at least 2 slabs of beer per week.
But there was not a single year where his doc had no major complaints about his bloodwork, mineral levels and blood count in general.
So I won't take him as a prime example of things going right LOL
The others are doing quite fine on their "softer" vegetarian diet.
But again I fail to see the actual benefit if I consider the before and now situations.
The all had to learn cooking the stuff the correct way and cooking in their old days was nothing you would consider healthy...
Too much oil and salt, meals often more a calorie bomb than healthy and of course lots of booze at least for the male parts...
If changing from what we consider "normal" to vegetarian or even vegan means you change your entire lifestyle aorund it as well and actually learn cooking the right way for the first time in your life than leaving animal products out was not what made you healthy ;)

And if everyone would change and become a vegetarian - what will all the animals eat once billions of people compete for their food sources and areas to grow them? ;)

I have a simple answer why began is good, there cannot be another better way to help animals suffering. Vegans are reported to have less cases of heart diseases, cancer, diabetes or high blood pressure compare to meat eaters........

Vegan isn't good. IT'S GREAT!!!!

Fun fact: Soya protein is not vegetarian.

It's prepared with enzymes extracted from animals.
Soylent Green is...

Soy-based cheeses are also non-vegan, as their texture is modified with casein, a milk-derived protein.
just wait until the Vegan Empire strikes back...
I doubt they'll have the physical stamina...

The best man at our wedding turned veggie, then vegan.

He's an intelligent man, but it wasn't many months before he was at the doctor, being prescribed a steak meal...

Even Ghandi had to partake of meat "for his health's sake" at several points in his life.
