Folks always say to me, "I would go vegan but there's no way I can give up cheese or scrambled eggs."
I get it!
Since dairy & eggs are so prevalent in a standard American diet, it's hard for many of us to imagine living without these foods.
When I started my own journey in 2010, I wasn't sure if I could do it long-term because I loved ice cream and baked macaroni & cheese so much.
These days, it's easier than ever to embrace a vegan lifestyle without feeling deprived of your favorite dishes!
I promise once you find a replacement that works for you, it will be less challenging to move away from harmful & unnecessary animal products.
Here are 4 reasons you should just say NO to dairy and eggs:
- For your health -- high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol & certain cancers risk is higher for people who consume animal products.
- Dairy products aren't meant for humans -- Cow's milk is made for a calf..not for us. Have you ever thought about why we eat & drink the secretions of another species? It just doesn't make sense! Plus, dairy is just fat and designed for a calf to go from about 80 lbs at birth to over 400 lbs in just 8 months.
Protest factory farming and animal cruelty -- Even if you're not an animal lover, the suffering of animals raised for food might be the most offensive and heinous of all animal farming. Read more about this industry here and here
- Environmental concerns -- Animals raised for food are huge contributors to global warming & pollution.
With so many awesome replacements for every dairy and egg recipe out there, there's no better time than now to embrace a healthier and more compassionate vegan life.
