As the cost of eggs and meat are skyrocketing, more people are considering adopting a vegan lifestyle. The financial savings coupled with the many health benefits makes this a win-win situation.
Initially, people adopted a vegan lifestyle to save animals from harsh treatment in our commercial slaughterhouses. Upon doing so, they noticed positive changes in their bodies. These documented changes have caught the attention of others who are interested in adopting a healthier lifestyle.
When you switch from a western diet to a vegan diet you will eliminate meat and animal products, thus requiring you to rely more heavily on other foods such as:
- whole grains
This results in a higher daily intake of beneficial nutrients since vegans generally consume considerably more legumes, fruits, and vegetables than nonvegans.
Several studies have reported that vegan diets tend to provide more fiber, antioxidants, and beneficial plant compounds. They also appear to be richer in potassium, magnesium, folate, and vitamins A, C, and E.

In addition to weight loss, eating fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, and fiber is linked to a lower risk of heart disease.
