What are the differences between a vegan and a vegetarian diet?

A vegetarian does not eat any animal flesh, whereas a vegan excludes

any products derived from animals, including meat, dairy and eggs. For more, checkout our article on the differences between a vegan and a vegetarian diet

Why do people become vegan?

Firstly, it is clear that following a plant-based diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and tons of nutrients, contributes to a healthy body and brain. 

Another strong motivation to choose a vegan diet is to prevent and condemn animal cruelty and exploitation. Vegans believe that all living creatures have a right to a dignified life and to experience freedom. 

Moreover, producing plant-based food is less damaging to the environment than the meat and animal product industry.

What are the benefits of a plant-based diet?

Plant-based or vegan diets are beneficial to our health while being more sustainable for the environment. 

There are countless health benefits to plant-based diets. For instance, they have a lower saturated fats content and are naturally rich in fibre. 

Consequently, plant-based diets have a protective effect on cholesterol levels as well as on cardiovascular and digestive health.

 

What’s more, when planned adequately, plant-based diets can support a healthy weight and a fit body composition.

This is why the Canadian Food Guide recommends choosing plant-based food more often than animal food.

I want to follow a plant-based diet. Where do I start?
