You'll find vegans of all different ideologies. However, you'll be surprised at how much common ground we all have.
In this article, we'll go over 6 things most vegans can relate to. Enjoy!
Usually feel bogged down after a big lunch? Need that extra cup of Joe to get an ounce of work done in the office?
Assuming you stay on a healthy plant-based diet and not just eat Oreos all day, you'll have a ton of energy you didn't have before.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” - Hippocrates
When you cut out meat, dairy, and eggs from your diet, amazing things will happen.
#5 Being tired of getting asked "Where do you get your protein from?"
The number one question vegans are asked? - "Where do you get your protein?"
It's such a common question, yet there are so many plant foods with plenty of protein, such as legumes, nuts, and seeds.
#4 "What? Cheaper Grocery Bill!"
One benefit of veganism that you don't hear too often is that for most people, going vegan lowers the grocery bill!
The funny part about this is that it is a myth that vegans have the most expensive food costs out there. Well, maybe you'll have a high bill if you only eat at 5-star vegan restaurants, only buy processed vegan food - meat substitutes - and only buy the most organic and expensive fruit/veggies.
Just listen to what NoMeatAthelete said when a reader was questioning if veganism is expensive:
Think about it. At three or four or more dollars per pound, meat is one of the more expensive items in the grocery store. There’s usually some waste associated with that as well. Replacing it pound-for-pound with beans (just a simple example, but not too different from what many new vegetarians do) would result in significant savings, as even cooked organic beans in a can cost only a dollar or so per pound. Replacing the meat with tempeh or tofu would be more expensive than replacing it with beans, but that still wouldn’t result in a higher grocery bill than if you were to buy meat.
#3 A greater appreciation for animals
Whether you initially go vegan for animal ethics, environmental concerns, or health reasons, you'll always end up gravitating towards feeling empathy for the animals.
You'll start seeings cows, pigs, and chickens as animals just as deserving of a peaceful life as your dogs or cats.
#2 No more worrying about getting sick from uncooked foods!
Paranoid about licking cake batter in fear of salmonella? Well, the good news is your paranoia will ease after going vegan!
No longer will you have to worry about uncooked eggs or chicken when preparing meals.
#1 Taking The Ultimate Red Pill
One thing that I'm sure all vegans can relate to is that going veg caused a dramatic shift in their life.
- You become more conscious of the food you put in your body
- You become part of a growing movement, promoting peace, healthy choices, and eco-friendly solutions
- You start to influence those around you to make positive changes
If you've ever seen the movie, The Matrix, Neo chooses between a Red Pill and a Blue Pill. If he chooses the Red Pill, he will forever know the evil truth. If he chooses the Blue Pill, he will remain in an ignorant bliss.
People go vegan because they uncover information about the unethical treatment of animals, they learn the health devastations that meat & dairy consumption causes, and they learn about the environmental destruction that animal agriculture causes.
Once you uncover those reasons, you'll have an incredibly hard time going back and will wonder why you didn't go vegan sooner.
