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.

Anti-Veganism

As the popularity and awareness of the benefits of veganism grow’s around the world, so does the anti-sentiment builds towards it from local governments and food manufacturers.

Namely, it’s all about revenue being lost from the meat and dairy industries all of which have vested government interests.

France has recently announced that it is banning Vegan companies from advertising meat-free foods with meat sounding equivalent names! for example; Veggie Fish, Meat-free Lamb, etc.

Below is a list of other countries which are trying to undermine Vegan companies, restaurants, and Supermarket from having vegan options:

  • France
  • Argentina
  • Philippines
  • Iceland
  • China
  • Brazil
  • Korea
  • Russia
  • Mexico
  • Germany
  • Cuba
  • Spain

I’ve Done It!!!

I never thought it possible but today I have reached the third month of my personal Vegan Challenge and I feel GREAT!

Yesterday, I went to Vegan Chinese restaurant (Loving Hut) in Archway with the family, it was so tasty and no joke my Vegan fish and chips were bang-on just like the real thing!

My Son had a Vegan beef burger and for a Nine-year-old to rave afterward that he could not tell it wasn’t meat says a lot.

I am happy to continue my  Vegan journey and looking forward to sharing my adventures as a ‘New World Vegan’.

Thank you!

I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who is following my journey and reading my regular blogs, your support has been amazing!

This Sunday (8th April) will be the 3rd and final month of my personal Vegan challenge, I hear you cheering me on..lol

Once I reach this milestone, which to be honest I never ever thought I’d be able to do it, I must then decide…Do I continue or become ‘Captain Carnivore man’ again..lol

I would say I am 20/80. I will let you know on Sunday.

Here are some more Infographics to share with you.

Why is Veganism so Hard?

It’s like Marmite, the journey of a Vegan to other people.

People say to me why have I given up juicy meats and delicious dairy foods for vegetables and Tofu instead? Then the next quick questions which follow:, has Doctor told you to change your diet? or are you Ill?..lol

My answer is the usual, ‘No’ I am fully healthy, this is just my personal challenge. Then the look of weirdo follows..lol

So why is Veganism so hard for others to see or try?

Well, it’s the breaking away from the norm and expectations that society has made us become, where the food we eat must have been reared in a cage, slaughtered and then cooked.

Whilst exposing our bodies to countless man-made chemicals.

The key to me succeeding my own challenge and beyond my three-month target is knowing that I am making myself fitter, healthier and taking away profits from the meat and dairy factories.

Otherwise, I’d be eating this:

Veganism and the Health Benefits!

Hi everyone, as well as enjoying my Vegan diet I have also been researching on the benefits and challenges of Veganism.

The main challenges are planning your meals and ensuring you are getting the essential daily nutrients and calories, portions are usually bigger as the plate is 100% meat and dairy free.

Check out the infographic below:

The above Infographic backs up my New World Vegan argument.

Look at the benefits, give yourself a vegan challenge for three months and your body will benefit instantly at the end.
