It’s Veganuary! 5 reasons to try a plant-based diet | Welbeing

According to Vegan Food and Living, one in six (16%) food products launched in the UK last year was vegan — twice as many than in 2015.

And, undoubtedly, the demand is there. In fact, The Future of Food Report suggests a staggering 25% of Brits will adopt the plant-based diet by 2025.

But why?

1. It reduces your carbon footprint

2. It can help you maintain a healthy weight

Which leads us to our next point…

3. It can help you manage type 2 diabetes

4. It will help you take back control

Jay Brave — spoken word artist, entertainer and vegan ambassador — says that for many, choosing plant-based cuisine “comes from a place of personal autonomy.” it allows people to “take back control of their own diet”, in a system where they’re not always in control of the things they buy.

5. It’s a chance to get creative
