99% of Popular Cereals Are Not Suitable For Vegans!

Hi All,

I have recently found out the following fact:

Popular breakfast cereals including Rice Krispies, Kellogg’s cornflakes and Cheerios contain vitamin D which is made from sheep’s wool grease, it has emerged, meaning they are unsuitable for vegans.

It is feared that many of the UK’s 550,000 vegans may have been eating vitamin D fortified cereals, as they contain no ingredients which are obviously derived from animals.

They are marked with a “suitable for vegetarians” logo, with no explicit warning that they are unsuitable for vegans.

High Antioxidants = Veganism

Hi All,

As I continue my Vegan journey, I am finding more and more in research on the vast health benefits that are gained.

The chief one being that Vegans consume the highest amount of ‘Antioxidants’ compared to all other diets.

Antioxidants help to mop up free-radicals which can harm our cells and cause other health issues,┬áIncreasing one’s antioxidant intake is essential for optimum health, especially in today’s polluted world. Because the body just can’t keep up with antioxidant production, a good amount of these vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals.

Data from the Adventist Health Study showed that nonvegetarians had a substantially increased risk of both colorectal and prostate cancer than did Vegans. A Vegan diet provides a variety of cancer-protective dietary factors.

In addition, obesity is a significant factor, increasing the risk of cancer at a number of sites. Because the mean BMI of vegans is considerably lower than that of nonvegetarians, it may be an important protective factor for lowering cancer risk.

Sources of Nutrition

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes a lot of people wrongly think that a Vegan diet lacks many of the bodies essential nutrients.

A vegan diet does require planning to ensure there is variety and the right combination of green foods, grains, and beans to give the body what it needs.

Below are some infographics to show how easy it is.

5K Vegan Runner

Hi Everyone,

I have achieved another of my personal challenges this week since becoming Vegan three months ago.

I have completed two 5K runs! I have never been a distance runner ever but I have found new energy levels since I change my diet.

I’ll be going for another 5K run next week and my target time is 25 min, it might take a couple more runs mind you.

It feels really great being Vegan!
