Being vegan isn’t as easy as it sounds, as it requires a huge dose of dedication and self-discipline. Saying goodbye to chicken quesadillas or even jean beans isn’t for everyone. However, more and more people are choosing to go vegan for different reasons.
Some people consider a vegan diet to be a healthier alternative for the planet and environment or others can’t handle the thought of animals suffering. Many believe a vegan diet is healthier than a diet that includes animal proteins.
But the truth of the matter is, we are only as healthy as the foods we consume and there are plenty of sugary, fatty vegan alternatives out there to ruin your diet. Many people have come to believe that veganism will be an instant improvement in your health. However, new studies have shown that fish, chicken and even red meat isn’t as bad for our health as we recently believed.
November, each year, is vegan month, which gives us the perfect opportunity to try eating less meat and opting for that new vegan restaurant on the corner.

Each of them have gone vegan for different reasons, such as health, environmental or health.
