It’s National Vegetarian Week!
This week is all about making different food choices and enjoying more veggie & plant-based treats into your everyday diet. Today, we’re explaining why it’s good to go green with your diet and how we’ll be eating vegetarian for an entire day this week!
Why should I go vegetarian?
There aren’t just plenty of benefits for our planet when it comes to switching to plant-based, it’s also wonderful for your health too! It’s no secret that veggies and vegans are seen as super health-conscious because of their diet, but are there actually any proven benefits to going plant-based? Check out what Dr Sara Ryding says:
- Metabolism benefits: Some studies have shown a link between veganism and an increased metabolism.
- Cardiovascular improvement: Thanks to the diet of grains, pulses and veggies, research has shown link between veganism and a decreased risk of heart disease.
- Cognitive benefits: Some studies on specific nutrients from the vegan diet have shown an improvement in cognitive health. (1)
