Veganuary

Share

2019 is near and it’s time to make New Year resolutions to enhance our wellbeing and lifestyle. Trying Veganuary this January will just do that.

 

There are many reasons to try a vegan way of life and the New Year is a great time to go for it. For most people, their love of animals is the main reason. Some people want to go vegan for their health by ditching meat, eggs and dairy. Others have seen the impact the agricultural industries have on the environment and want to pledge to a vegan lifestyle for the well-being of the planet. Although you may only think you want to go vegan for one reason, you will soon learn of the positives leading a vegan lifestyle, not just for yourself but for all beings.

 

Launched in 2014, Veganuary is a charity that encourages people to try veganism for January and offers recipes, advise and information to make the transition to a vegan lifestyle as easy as possible.

 

A vegan, by definition, is a person who does not eat or use animal products.

It is important to remember that veganism isn’t just a diet but a lifestyle choice. It is about being the best version of yourself to help end the suffering of all beings and to make the planet a healthier and safer place to live on equally and peacefully.

 

Veganism is one of the most effective choices a person can make. Being vegan you reduce the suffering of animals that are bred, exploited and killed for food, fashion and scientific experiments. By boycotting non-vegan products, you are saying no to animal abuse. A vegan lifestyle also helps the planet by reducing your carbon footprint as animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, air pollution, ocean dead zones and many more. Above all else, a vegan diet can improve your health. Of course, you must watch how many delicious vegan doughnuts and burgers you eat but adopting a plant-based diet has many benefits, for example, a vegan plant-based diet is the only diet proven to reverse heart disease and diabetes.

 

To understand veganism ask yourself the question:

 

‘If I can live a healthy, happy life without harming others and in doing so help protect the environment, why wouldn’t you?’ – Earthling Ed

 

Your seconds of pleasure eating animals is not worth their life and your few months or years wearing their skin is not worth their pain and suffering. There are delicious vegan foods. There are beautiful and stylish vegan fashion. There are fun sports to play without the tormenting and killing of animals. If there is a way, there is a vegan way.

 

We are always here to support you at BB and would love to hear about your vegan journey.
