World Vegetarian Day celebrates people eating non-animal foods. Every year, thousands of people move to a healthier, more socially responsible living.
Those people actively choose to change their lifestyles, they care about the lives of animals, they will want to end animal cruelty whilst avoiding the perils of heart disease. Vegetarians also actively choose to eliminate full time meat and animal products from their diets so they can live a more conscientious life.
How did World Vegetarian Day start?
It was established by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) in 1977 to help promote a vegetarian way of life, to educate people on the social and health benefits of cutting meat products from their diets.
As omnivores, we are capable of eating foods that don’t contain animal meat or products of any kind. Vegetarian diets are healthier than diets that contain animal fat. It’s important we think about what we put into our mouths.
Sticking to a low-fat vegetarian diet means we completely avoid diseases such as cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Meat proteins can also make you more sluggish.
Vegetarian diets not only remove animal fat from our diets and help reduce cholesterol, but they contain more fibre and antioxidants, known for their ability to fight cancer. For those who continue to follow a vegetarian diet, can add 13 years to our lives.
Changing your lifestyle, so you eat vegetarian food, means you’re not only saving ‘your planet’ for future generations to come, but it will take years off your life, make you feel good, and can make you feel more energised.
