Think Healthy, Go Vegan!

Making the switch may be a hard thing to consider, but if you have ever thought about a healthier lifestyle Vegan is the way to go.

First off, take into consideration your health. Excessive red meat intake over time can give you unexpected health problems including a higher risk of cancer and cardiovascular mortality rates. As a study, Vegans have been shown to be slimmer as well as having lower blood pressure and cholesterol than meat-eaters.

Now that you know what’s at risk, don’t fret. There are many options to veganism than you would imagine.

Take for instance the supermarket, Start by picking up all of your favorite fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs (no skimping) because the more you have in your fridge, the more you can experiment with recipes to find the favorite meals you can enjoy time and time again.

Nuts: Nut’s also have a very high impact on the vegan diet, picking up nuts in bulk such as walnuts, almonds, cashews etc. can also add to the benefits of your new lifestyle including the help of lowering your cardiovascular risk and adding a source of protein and vitamin E to your diet.

Starting over may be scary, but there are also options for the avid meat-eater to make a smoother transition including: Veggie Burgers, Veggie Dogs, Soy-bean nuggets and strips, Tofurkey and many more. These options both come in fresh and frozen packeted selections from some of the top-selling vegan brands such as, Yves vegan cuisine, Gardein and Sol Cuisine.
