This is just the VEGANning

This is just the VEGANning

This is just the VEGANning… The word vegan can be scary to some people to say the least, especially those of us who only know that being vegan means that you don’t eat anything that has an eye or comes from an animal. According to a 2019 article in The Economist, 25 percent of 25-to-34-year-old Americans say they are vegans or vegetarians. This is mind-blowing considering only 6% of Americans identified as Vegan in 2017 according to a report compiled by GlobalData called Top Trends in Prepared Foods. The good news is more and more products are coming to market every year that are not only vegan but that are also great tasting items as well. Going full vegan in 2020 isn’t too bad considering we live in a world where vegan cheese, vegan chicken-less tenders, and vegan burgers taste like the real deal!  **If you haven’t tried all of the Ground-Based Nutrition Products yet, you need to. Did you know that we have the best tasting vegan protein powder on the market?
However, how many of us who aren’t vegan can say that we’ve actually learned about the pros and cons of a vegan diet? After all, there must be a lot of great benefits of having a vegan diet!
Pros:
No animal impact
Healthier for the environment
Reduced food costs
May lead to weight loss
Wider variety of foods
**Lots of health benefits 
according to Jeffrey Soble, MD, a cardiologist at Rush University
Medical Center, who began eating a plant-based diet nearly two years
ago:
Research has shown that a vegan diet can help do the following:
    • Promote weight loss
    • Reduce your risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels
    • Lower your chances of getting certain types of cancer, such as colon cancer
    • Manage diabetes by lowering A1C levels
Cons:
Limited food choices at times
Possible nutrient deficiencies 
Difficulty dining out
**If going full vegan isn’t for you, you could always try incorporating more vegan-based products into your daily routine.
