Benefits of Going Vegan

Better for your health and the planet

A plant-based diet is increasingly becoming recognized as a healthier alternative to a meat based diet.

Going vegan has many benefits for us and our environment.

1. Vegans Live Longer

Scientists have been talking for years about the effects of greenhouse gas emissions on our atmosphere and planet. Now, more than ever, the need to find solutions for these problems has become urgent.

Meat or No Meat?

A discussion on vegetarianism

There are people who argue that we should avoid eating the flesh of other animals for a variety of reasons and there are modern medical scientists and dietitians who prescribe eating meat. While diet should always be something of a personal choice, it is impossible to avoid being exposed to other people’s ideas.

If we leave out the ‘should’ and look at how people come to an understanding and decide on the diet, then perhaps you can come to a more balanced decision for your life.

We must accept that we are mammals and that we have a capacity to eat almost anything that grows on this earth be it plant, fish or animal. But when

Vegetarianism

Our optimal diet

Baked Spud

Vegetarianism is the practice of following a plant-based diet of fruits, vegetables, etc., with the general exclusion of all meat and animal products. Science tells us that animal products and refined foods undermine our health while a whole food vegetarian diet is ideal and will provide internl conditions for a long and healthy life.

On a more subtle or refined level, eating an animal based diet makes us more aggressive, it limits the growth of our intelligence or consciousness and undermines our physical health.

A vegetarian diet is a lifestyle choice as much as a dietary choice.

Vegetables ideally need to be free of agricultural and environmental chemicals which is almost an
