I Went Vegan For A Month And This Is What I Learnt



By Colleen Branch in HUFFPOST.


There are some unarguable reasons to go vegan – saving the animals, caring for the environment and improving your health. I thought it was time to give it a go. Here is what I discovered:

Veganism doesn’t have to be expensive

There’s no reason that eating vegan should be more expensive than eating meat – yes there are plenty of expensive vegan products out there, but staples like beans, rice, pasta, vegetables are all cheap.

I love pouring over What Broke Vegans eat on Facebook and of course – mxjackmonroe – Jack Monroe’s Instagram page for meal inspiration.

Just because it’s vegan, doesn’t mean it’s healthy

Going vegan doesn’t automatically mean that you’re instantly on a healthy eating path. It also doesn’t mean you’re eating unprocessed food.

Deep-fried fatty food such as onion rings made with beer batter and junk food like crisps and biscuits are obviously not good for you.

Instead, concentrate on making vegetables the star of your meals, eat the rainbow in fruits and vegetables, and choose whole grains for added iron and B vitamins.
