It is that time of the year again. The time to usher out the old and welcome in the new. Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions? Chances are, that if you did, those resolutions included losing weight, eating better and getting healthier? Are you aware that all of these goals can be met by switching to a vegan diet? Get ready to accomplish your goals and enjoy delicious, satisfying meals throughout the duration of your journey.


Going vegan in 2017 does not have to be difficult, and to be honest, there are some truly wonderful reasons to make the transition. For example, going vegan can help you shed those extra pounds you’ve been desperately trying to get rid of. Going vegan is a healthy way to keep the excess weight off for good. Being vegan is not a fad diet, it is a positive lifestyle change. Case in point, on average, vegans tend to be up to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters.

A vegan diet is also great for your health. Vegans are less likely to develop cancer, diabetes or heart disease and their blood pressure is usually much lower than a meat-eaters is. As a vegan diet is a plant-based diet, vegans get all of the nutrients needed to be healthy from plant protein, fiber and minerals. Also, a vegan diet does not contain the saturated fats and cholesterol found in diets rich in meat.


Does the thought of going vegan appeal to you, but are you afraid of giving up ice cream, chicken sandwiches and perhaps the occasional burger? You won’t have to! As the vegan diet continues to gain momentum and become more popular, companies continue to come out with tasty alternatives free of meat and dairy products that actually taste like the real thing. Also, there are tons of resources out there, recipes too, on how to substitute some of your favourite meat dishes and turn them into healthy vegan meals.


Vegan food is delicious, and steps toward eliminating meat and transitioning into a total vegan diet are not as difficult as they seem. Start day by day and do what is right for you, but no doubt about it, a vegan diet is much better for your health, for animals and for the planet in general. It’s a new year, make your ultimate goal in 2017 a whole new you!
