More and more of my friends are turning to the vegan lifestyle. Which according to the healthy experts, it’s one of the better options if you are looking improve overall health.
According to Healthline, veganism is defined as a plant-based diet and lifestyle choice. It means abstaining from eating meat, dairy, eggs, and any other animal products. And the lifestyle choice has become increasingly popular. Healthline says over a half-million people worldwide went vegan for the first time in January 2021.
Research and science has shown there are key benefits to a vegan diet. Here are some:
Benefits Of A Vegan Lifestyle
- Promotes weight loss
- Reduces risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels
- Lowers chances of getting certain types of cancer, such as colon cancer
- Manages diabetes by lowering A1C levels.
The caveat for me is finding vegan-friendly restaurants. I did a little research and found these hot spots in Charlotte. And they get pretty good reviews, too on taste and presentation.
