10 benefits I have experienced by switching to a vegan diet

  1. My energy levels have increased a lot. I rarely have a day where I feel like I’m tired and have low energy.
  2. I’m eating healthier. As a vegan it’s important to get the correct nutrients which means eating a variety of foods. Lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and high fiber grains.
  3. It’s easier to stick to a healthy diet due to the lack of vegan junk food in stores. 7/11 does have a small selection of vegan snacks but most of them are healthy with clean ingredients.
  4. I can eat more. It’s hard putting on weight on a wholesome vegan diet. You have to eat more often. I love that I don’t have to worry about my portions sizes or number of snacks.
  5. My taste buds have changed, so vegetables and fruits taste much better than they did before. All my sugar cravings are satisfied by fruit.
  6. I never have the feeling of being too full, which I often did as a meat eater.
  7. I have found myself in a new and interesting field. I have dived head first into veganism and all the self-education and self-improvement that comes with it.
  8. I’m becoming a better cook by discovering different kinds of food. Different vegan foods taste amazing and I keep surprising myself.
  9. I have a clear conscience. I don’t support any company engaged in animal cruelty. It feels great to take moral responsibility for myself and my actions towards our planet.
  10. Veganism has given me more confidence. When I started I kept it a secret because I was afraid of other peoples judgment and prejudice. I’m getting braver and more confident by sticking up for myself and greeting people’s opinions and questions with an open mind.
