VEGANISM AS A LIFESTYLE




Do you care about our planet? Do you love living beings? Do you want to behave in a respectful and considerate way towards nature? And would you like to improve your health? Become a vegan.


Many people think of veganism as simply skipping meat and animal products. But this direction has a much deeper meaning. It's a lifestyle.


Veganism is a way of life that strives to be as considerate as possible to nature, the environment and all living things. Last but not least, its purpose is to prevent various illnesses and diseases of civilisation and to lead a healthy and happy life full of respect.


This involves the way we eat, dress and use beauty products. In all these aspects, he rejects animal products. Thus, a vegan avoids eating meat, eggs, dairy products and even honey. In his wardrobe you will not find anything made of leather or fur, wool or silk. You won't see a Vegan in a circus, because he refuses to dressage animals, nor will you see him at a horse race or any other entertainment that uses animals.


The same applies to the use of cosmetics. Vegan products are not tested on animals, they are free from animal ingredients. Vegans are not indifferent to ecology. Veganism in particular is environmentally friendly. In fact, far less agricultural land is sufficient for a vegan's diet than for a meat-eater.


Vegetables and fruit, cereals, legumes, nuts and seeds are the basis of the diet. They can consume mushrooms, alternatives to animal products such as tofu, seitan, vegetable cheese, etc. As much as possible, however, they prefer staple foods in their natural form. This makes it not nearly as costly as many myths have it.


This kind of diet, if the diet is well prepared, leads to weight reduction, has a positive effect on blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol levels, and prevents cancer, especially colon cancer. And it has an overall effect on good health and mood.


You just need to consistently follow a properly designed and varied diet that provides all the necessary substances, complex carbohydrates, proteins, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Particularly discussed is vitamin B12, which people who avoid animal products may lack.


Where can we find it? Suitable vegan sources include fermented foods such as tempeh, miso, seaweed, chlorella, spirulina, etc. Some foods are also fortified with vitamin B12, such as meat alternatives, delicatessen yeast, and plant milks. Alternatively, it is advisable to supplement with nutritional supplements.
