Why become a Vegan?
Many people choose to be vegans for health reasons. While many others choose this lifestyle for environment or ethical reasons. They believe that they have a responsibility to do their part to promote a more humane and caring world.
However, it is also important that vegans ensure that their diets contain various sources of plant food to provide them with a balanced and nutritionally complete diet. Nutrients that need more specific consideration to ensure optimal intakes are vitamin B12, calcium, iron, protein and zinc, where key sources are in animal products.
Today, there are a wide variety of vegan foods available such as vegan cheese, vegan chocolate, vegan ice-cream, vegan mayonnaise, vegan sausages and vegan yogurt. For those who prefer to cook their own meals, we have a few new recipes suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
