THE VEGAN LIFE

  

THE VEGAN LIFE

In the past few years most people have gone vegan and vegan products have started to appear more in our local stores. However, some people are curious about this eating pattern adopted by many. This article tells you everything you need to know about veganism.

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet.in shorty this means one should stay away from animal related products. A person who followers this rules is called a vegan. Dietary vegans refrain from consuming meat, eggs, dairy products and any other animal derived substances.an ethical vegan not only follows a vegan diet but also extends the philosophy in other parts of their lives. The nutrition department does not recommend children, adolescents and pregnant women to indulge in vegan dieting.

Most of them extend the definition of veganism beyond just food. Vegans believe that animals should not be killed.it makes it harder for them to purchase animal related products because it goes against their principles. Some vegans also stay away from personal and household products tested on animals. Some also don’t wear clothes made from animal products e.g. leather or wool.

A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits combined together.in addition many versions of vegan food is also available.so vegans can eat hot dogs, ice cream, cheese, non-dairy yoghurt and vegan mayonnaise along with the more familiar veggie burgers and other meat substitute products like chicken recipes. Other foods include soy milk, nutritional yeast, coconut milk, and almond milk. They can also eat green salad, spaghetti, peanut butter, sandwiches, cornbread chips and salsa.

It’s easy to find vegan alcohol but some thorough research has to be conducted. Wine and beer can be processed using animal products such as isinglass, egg whites or gelatine. Fortunately every brand of hard liquor, bourbon, whiskey, vodka, gin and rum is vegan. Before purchasing any drink research thoroughly and make sure it’s in line with what you desire.

Vegan diets tend to be higher in dietary fibre, magnesium, folic acid, vitamin c and vitamin E.it lowers chances of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and heart diseases. Some people choose this kind of dieting to lose weight. People also choose to avoid animal products because e of the environmental impact of animal agriculture.

United Nations {UN} report argued that such products require more resources and cause higher greenhouse gas emissions than plant based options. Animal agriculture contributes to 65% of global nitrogenous oxide emissions, 35-40% of methane emissions, and 9% of carbon dioxide emissions. These three chemicals are considered the principal greenhouse gasses involved in climate change.

People who eat vegan and vegetarian diets have a lower risk of heart disease and a higher risk of stroke. On average they live longer. They have lower mortality rates than meat-eaters, and grow old with fewer health issues. Vegans weigh less than other groups on average. Considering the advantages that come with this kind of lifestyle, better digestion, more fibreless saturated fat, more nutritious yet Low-calorie foods it makes sense why vegans would weigh less.

A well balanced vegan diet which is low in salt and processed food may help prevent heart disease, stroke and reduce the risk of diabetes.as the intake of nutrients like iron, zinc and calcium are reduced on a vegan diet, our bodies get better at absorbing them from the intestines.as long as you follow a proper, nutrient rich vegan diet your body and senses will improve drastically.

Many people say how easy it is to lose weight once they transitioned to a fully plant based diet. A lot of people struggle with weight comes from the excess calories in protein attained from meat and mindless snacking. It’s hard to stay up at nigh binge watching on some movies or Netflix without having to dip your hand in a cookie jar.

People assume that going vegan requires a lot of discipline and dedication. Switching into a vegan diet is surprisingly easy. The most obvious way to become vegan is to eliminate all animal products in your diet. Transitioning into that is surprisingly difficult. Instead of trying to cut animal products’ off your diet crowd them out. Constantly seek new type of foods to eat.

Every time you discover one it pushes the animal based foods in your life further to the fringes. The more foods you sample the easier it gets to eat vegan products most of the time.so cultivate the habit of trying new foods at every opportunity you get.be it in events that you are attending or while in a date. Try and order for something you have never tasted before. Week by week the vegan products will begin crowding out the animal products that are currently in your diet.

At the end of the day, vegans enjoy their meals every day and they feel good about their bodies. It’s a decision that has changed many people’s lives. Maybe it’s time we all give it a try. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, but you may want to learn what worked for your friends and family. Whatever way you do it keep your goals in mind and remember why you are choosing to live a vegan life.
