Although they are not new, vegan diets are currently piquing the public’s interest and have sparked a "plant-based" movement. Eating vegan is defined as not eating or using animal products. There are various reasons why people have taken interest and participate in vegan diets, including:
Health: Going vegan forces one to eat more fruits and veggies because that is what the diet purely consists of. The typical American diet puts too much emphasis on animal products and refined grains, and it is becoming evident that those products lead to a whole slew of health problems, such as increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Animal Rights: Some of the meat, dairy, poultry and fish facilities have less than sub par treatment towards animals, which creates moral issues.
Environmental and Sustainability:
While there are additional reasons why people participate in vegan diets, one need not be an “official” vegan to eat vegan foods or create vegan recipes. The Farmers Markets are fantastic places to start exploring delicious vegan products and purchase food to make a vegan recipe!
