Eating a Plant Based diet help you reduce your carbon footprint by almost 73 percent, scientists from Oxford University says. By eating a plant based diet you help the environment and reduces health risks. Going vegan is the perfect opportunity to learn more about nutrition, cooking, improving your diet and it lowers the risk of getting diabetes, some types of cancer and it lowers your blood pressure.
A vegan diet is low on saturated fats and cholesterol, unprocessed foods, low on sugar, non - gmo, excludes dairy and eggs and most importantly it does not include meats of any kind.
While eating plant based for only a few weeks you will already start to notice how your body is changing, what your body wants and what your body needs. Body fat is probably the first thing changing on your body while going plant based because you have to stay away from unhealthy junk food, processed food, dairy and you have to be careful of what the foods you are buying contains.
Your taste buds will also change because the food you consume are cleaner and do not contain gmo, saturated fats, and you basically stay away from bad processed foods and your nutrient intake is closer to the international recommendations.
Vegan or vegetarian diets will help you lower your cholesterol, blood pressure, it lowers the chance of getting type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.
Vegan products like oat milk, almond milk and soy milk are filled with vitamin B12 which is a great replacement for meat. While drinking 2 glasses of oat milk in one day you lower you blood cholesterol and you get your source of B12. Of course there are several other products which contains this vitamin, but oat milk is surely a great way of making sure you get your daily intake of B12.
Animals are a huge part of why people are eating plant based. The amount of factories and gas emissions destroying the air pollution and environment producing meat is insane.
If you go vegan for only one day you will save 1 animals life, 1,100 gallons of water and 30 feet square of forest land.
