Some Advice on Going Vegan

Vegan: What, Why

These days, we hear a lot about vegetarian and vegan food. These two things are really different and I consider that a lot of people don’t really know the difference. I want to inform you more about veganism because I think it is important for people to understand how beautiful vegans's vision of life is.

Being vegan isn’t just a way to eat, it’s a way to think. Vegans care about animals, about environment, about health, and about economy. You know how expensive meat is. Going vegan is also choosing to be money smart. There are some vegan products you will need to buy that are a bit more expensive, but you will be using them for a long period of time. It is 100 percent sure that you will save a lot of money by going vegan. Also, did you know that 99 percent of the agricultural sectors are dedicated to feeding animals? This 99 percent could be used to feed humans, but no, instead it’s used to overfeed animals with food they’re not used to eating and with products they’re not supposed to have in their bodies. You should also be well aware of all the cruelty that animals suffer from in the agricultural industry. They’re not treated well at all. If you don’t care about animals, then maybe you care a little bit more about your health and you would like to know that going vegan is good for you. In fact, stop eating meat and reduce your chances of suffering from ACV or from cardiovascular problems by 30 percent. Of course, if you want to reduce your chances of being sick, you need to be careful with sugar. Going vegan doesn’t stop you from eating sugar, so that is still something you need to control. And if you’re concerned about your proteins and calcium, I can assure you that a lot of vegan products contain proteins and calcium so it is safe not to eat animal products like milk or meat.

If you’re not familiar with the term « vegan, » it means that you don’t eat any animal products like meat, fish, seafood, dairy, eggs, or honey. Also, vegans don’t wear animals. Here’s a list of things you can’t wear and a list of things you can;

Don’t wear :

  • Angora
  • Calfskin
  • Cashmere
  • Down
  • Fur
  • Leather
  • Mohair
  • Nubuck
  • Pashmina
  • Rabbit hair
  • Shearling
  • Sheepskin
  • Silk
  • Suede
  • Wool

You can wear :

  • Canvas
  • Corduroy
  • Cork fabric
  • Cotton
  • Cotton flannel
  • Down alternative
  • Faux suede/microsuede
  • Manmade material
  • Polyester
  • Satin
  • Synthetic materials
  • Thermoball™️

It is not that tough to wear vegan. You just need to check the labels. Also, faux suede, faux fur, faux leather is always cheaper ;).

If you need ideas of proteins you can eat, here’s some :

  • Soy milk
  • Almond milk
  • Tofu
  • Soy
  • Peanut butter
  • Raisins
  • Nuts
  • Cereals
  • Quinoa
  • Broccoli
  • Tomatoes
  • Tempeh
  • Leguminus

(There are more, don’t worry ;) )

Everyone should go vegan or, at the very least, try. If for any medical reasons you can’t, you could still try not to wear animals or use vegan skin products or stuff like that. I really hope you try to improve your way to live and think about animals as friends, not as food.

For those who are not that familiar with being vegan, you should check out Peta is an organization that protects animals and fights for their rights. They also give tips on food you can eat, things you can wear, and other things I did not mention.

I really hope you enjoyed reading me and I hope you’ll try to stop eating animals. 😽
