5 Healthy Meal Ideas To Start Your Vegan Journey

In recent years, Veganism has taken over the first world countries. While many people are moving towards Veganism, many are still confused. Veganism is the extension of vegetarianism. While vegetarians neglect eating animal meat, vegans oppose the idea of using animal products in any form. The use of dairy, poultry and even honey is banned in Veganism. Several vegans are against using animal products like fur, leather, and cosmetics. But why? A plant-based diet keeps your body detoxed and clean and helps eliminate bad cholesterol. The hormonal balancing powers of a vegan diet are tested and proven.

It fixes insulin fluctuations, balances one’s mood swings, and can even cause cancer growth. A vegan diet promotes cognitive development of the brain and helps improve concentration issues. Studies have also found that eating less animal food reduces one’s chances of catching food poisoning and helps prevent osteoporosis. Apart from all these selfish goals, people also go vegan when they feel like standing against pain and violence against animals.


A study has also shown that 80% of the total death due by air pollution due to food production comes from animal waste. Forces like forming healthy biodiversity also encourage people to take in the vegan life form. The main obstacle in following the vegan path comes when one finds it difficult to order food at a local restaurant. Due to the small fraction of the population in Veganism, the local and small cafes and restaurants do not keep vegan-friendly food. Also, people find it difficult to cook different cuisines without animal products.
