Veganism is the future of the planet. People are choosing in large numbers to change to a compassionate, plant-based diet for many reasons. Which one is yours?

Vegan 4 Fighting Climate Change

Veganism is a huge conduit for fighting climate change, and it’s the one thing you can do immediately that will make the biggest impact.

Animal agriculture contributes more to climate change and global warming than all fossil fuels combined.

  • 780 million people worldwide do not have access to clean water and 2.5 billion do not have proper sanitation.
  • By 2025 there will be 1.8 billion people living with absolute water scarcity.
  • Farming accounts for around 70% of all freshwater withdrawn from lakes, waterways and aquifers.
  • Meat production, especially the feeding of cattle, is a particularly water-intensive process.
  • Livestock production accounts for over 8% of global human water consumption.
  • Estimates of the water required to produce a kilo of beef vary, from 13,000 litres up to 100,000 litres. The water required to produce a kilo of wheat is somewhere between 1,000-2,000 litres.
  • Agricultural products account for 73% of the total water footprint.

Vegan 4 the Animals

The majority of vegans do it for the animals. Many of us believe that other sentient beings are not ours to be used for food, clothing, entertainment, or to experiment upon. We see this as exploitation, and it’s wrong.

Daily, millions of animals are tortured and slaughtered after living lives full of pain for a meal. This is unnecessary, as people are fully capable of living well on a plant-based diet.

If you are a vegan because of compassion for other animals, you are most likely to stay one for life. Congratulations and thank you – from the animals!

Vegan 4 Your Tastebuds

There are so many incredible vegan-friendly sites now, it would be impossible to list them all. Eating vegan has never been easier, healthier, or more delicious. Thanks to so many dedicated vegan chefs, nutritionists and lovers of all things culinary, you can find just about anything you love to eat ‘veganized’ in a recipe somewhere.  Here, I list some of my favorites.

I consider eating a plant-based diet as “feasting” because not only is it healthy, you also feel better knowing you’re eating basically guilt-free. When you choose your lifestyle compassionately, your cognitive dissonance stops nagging you. And, you’re probably adding years of healthy living to your life. Here are some great ways to acquaint yourself with some unbelievably indulgent vegan meal sources. Warning: You will kick yourself for not doing this sooner!

Some great things to know:

  1. Vegans do not deprive ourselves. In my case, anyway, I eat like a queen.
  2. Anything a cheese sauce could do, a cashew or coconut cream can do better!
  3. You can eat ‘fake meat’ or not, and still have a hearty (and healthy) diet.
  4. You never need to worry about protein. Seriously, it’s not an issue.
