Where to start… Eating a vegan diet benefits your health, the environment, and most importantly, it means you’ll no longer be contributing to the abuse and torture of sentient animals who feel pain, know what’s happening to them, and fear for their lives.
In terms of health, you may have been told that a vegan diet isn’t healthy and you can’t get all the nutrients you need from a vegan diet. That may have been true in 1982, which is the study most meat-eaters cite to support their argument, but times have changed. We now know what a vegan needs to eat to get the balanced nutrition they need to be healthy.
That’s why we see so many famous vegan (or plant-based) athletes, like Serena and Venus Williams, Carl Lewis, Mike Tyson, Tom Brady, Novak Djokovic, NFL Defensive Lineman David Carter, and many others. You can’t claim these world-class athletes are unhealthy or don’t get enough protein. Our vegan meal plans attempt to help you get all the right amounts of calcium, protein, fat, carbs and other vitamins throughout each day.
In terms of the environment, some estimates suggest that meat-eaters use 3,000 gallons of water per day in the production of their resource-intensive diets. Vegans, however, use about 300 gallons per day, or 10% of the meat-eater’s diet. That means a typical vegan would save nearly 1 million gallons of water every year!
In addition, eating organic, plant-based foods requires far less land, deforestation, pesticides, fossil fuels and every other natural resource to produce, making the overall environmental impact of going vegan HUGE!
Finally, eating meat isn’t a sustainable diet. That means more and more people will be forced to go vegan as our natural resources are further depleted. Those of us who have already made the switch won’t notice a difference. We’re prepared.
Eating a vegan diet is a guilt-free, healthy way to live. You’ll be thankful you went vegan.
