What Do Vegans Eat & Avoid?
"Veganism doesn't have to be all or nothing. By creating your own roadmap and being realistic about what you want to achieve, you'll be more satisfied with making the change."
The Veganism lifestyle is nothing new. In fact it has existed in huge numbers in India with Jains, Hindus & Buddhists, who have maintained it as their daily diet as part of their religious and philosophical beliefs to prevent any suffering to animals. The growing desire to lead a healthy lifestyle and be part of societal communities has led to drastic changes in the western hemisphere. This of course has increased the drastic increase in vegetarian and vegan culture.
Many by their own choice of caring for animals and the environment have taken the decision to switch to a vegan culture. Then there are some which feel as a benefit to their own health to switch to plant-based diet. Both have huge positive implications on a general well-being and as a whole have resulted in cutbacks in the dairy and meat industry.
