Should You Go Vegan?

Today, many individuals are deciding whether going vegan is a good choice. Some wonder if they can still consume the same amount of vitamins and minerals. But the truth is that it is possible to be a vegetarian and gain all of the necessary nutrients your body needs. It is a choice that is difficult to decide, especially when there are monuments to fast food on every corner.

Though it is very tempting to eat a burger with extra cheese, not many people talk about the nutrient disadvantages of eating unhealthy. Eating fatty foods can lead to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, a high body mass index, and weight problems.

Going vegan has the following benefits:

(1) Can reduce cholesterol, blood pressure, body mass index, and obesity.

(2) It is cost effective, since fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, and legumes tend to be cheaper than purchasing a pound of ground beef.

(3) Replacing meat with legumes or kale (which do contain healthy amounts of protein), is much healthier for your body.

Even if becoming vegan still seems tough, remember that Rome was not built in a day. It's about putting the in the effort, in order to live a healthier, cleaner life.
