Why Vegetarian?

Health

Vegetarian diets can reduce your risk and even reverse symptoms of chronic diseases as mentioned on the Vegan page [insert link to Vegan page].

Not everyone knows that B & C vitamins, and antioxidants can’t be stored by the body, so we need a daily dose of these guys to keep our metabolism going strong and for energy.

Although not exclusive to dairy, dairy contains proteins, minerals and vitamins that are important for brain and bone health. Vegetarian sources of protein include tofu, eggs, dairy, nuts, seeds, ‘vegetarian meat’/textured vegetable protein, and wholegrains.

Environment

More evidence is emerging that large scale animal agriculture is adding to global warming. Compared to producing animal foods, plant foods require far fewer resources like water and carbon. It is estimated that the global average amount of water required to produce 1kg of beef is 15,400L and chicken is 4,300L, dam that’s a lot of water, especially when 1kg of vegetables only requires 320L, fruit 960L and cereals 1,600L. Added up over a lifetime, you can see how what you eat makes a difference to the world. Sourcing your food locally can also help reduce the carbon foot print.
