Vegan

We love dishing up delicious vegan food, so you’ll only find 100% vegan food at Nagev.

None of our food contains: meat / poultry / seafood / dairy / egg / gelatin / honey.

Veganism is exploding! In 2016 Australia googled the word 'vegan' more than any other country in the world. The awareness is growing globally and we are doing our part locally by serving up some of the finest vegan food around.

Now, vegan food doesn’t always equal healthy food. There are heaps of vegan foods that aren't 'healthy,' but lets face it, they’re just too damn tasty not to eat!

Why Vegan?

Many people choose to be vegan for ethical, environmental and health reasons.

Ethical

The core of veganism is quite simply not wanting to exploit animals in any way (as food, entertainment, clothing etc.).

Eating a plant-based diet and not buying animal products is a positive way to reduce demand and support for factory farming.

Environmental

Vegan diets have a lower environmental impact than omnivorous diets – especially when food is sourced locally. Plants need far less water to produce food per kilogram than animals. Plants also absorb carbon dioxide and don’t emit greenhouse gases like methane from cows.

Health

Well-balanced vegan diets can reduce risk – and even reverse symptoms – of chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and kidney disease. Thank you plant power!

Times are changing, but there is still a lot of confusion. Let us clear one thing up: there are many sources of protein other than meat (and tasty ones, too).

Like any healthy lifestyle, it can take a bit of planning at first. Did you know it’s possible to be deficient in essential nutrients even if you do eat animal products? So we reckon everyone should do some research and planning to make sure you get all of the good stuff in your diet. Contact a dietitian if you have any personal health questions about eating a vegan diet. 

 

Vegan food doesn’t have to be boring, and it doesn’t have to be lacking in nutrients. Swing by Nagev and we’ll be happy to serve you up some fresh delicious and creative food.
