Meat production is on the rise and for this reason it seems more and more South Africans are choosing to eat more processed and high protein foods specifically meat and dairy products. Farmers cannot keep up with the demand for animal products, which is causing a wide variety of problems.
Our food security, health concerns and environmental concerns have been put under immense pressure. At B-well we want to make a difference to ensure food security in the future. We encourage South Africans to support more sustainable systems to produce our food. One option is changing our lifestyle towards a plant-based diet.
In support of this cause, B-well aims to support Veganuary and we encourage all South Africans to do the same. Veganuary was launched in 2014 and has inspired over 1 million people over 192 countries who all chose to eat plant-based.
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics appropriately planned vegetarian and vegan diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate and may provide health benefits for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
Veganism is a way of life that excludes all forms of cruelty to animals for food, products, or any other purpose. There are many ways to embrace the vegan lifestyle, but the underlying “rule” is to eat a plant-based diet. Vegans also so a step further than just avoiding meat; they also avoid fish, dairy, eggs, and honey, as well as products like leather or fur.
Going full vegan would be hard for a lot of people, but there are benefits that veganism brings. People from dozens of different ages, professions, and backgrounds have been turning to the vegan side lately, and numbers are on the rise.
B-well offers all vegan/vegetarian eaters a wide variety of plant-based products that cares for your health and the environment in which you live. Through this need for yummy vegan recipes, B-well has developed a Vegan Cookbook providing you with a variety of recipes that are cruelty-free and plant based.
With growing evidence indicating the health benefits of this diet, it has become apparent that ‘Veganism’ is not a trend, but a legitimate way of life with many, many health benefits, namely;
1.Going vegan treats/reverses health conditions you may already have.
Many experts say a plant-based diet is often more effective than medication, or even medical procedures when it comes to treating diseases.
2.Sticking to a plant-based lifestyle helps you get slim, and stay that way.
Vegans are the only group of people who average a normal and healthy BMI (body mass index) because they do not eat animal products that are calorie-dense.
3.You can try amazing new meals!
There are more than 20,000 kinds of edible plants in the world. Believe it or not, prepared with the right spices and side dishes, these plant-based meals are delicious and satisfying.
