Advantages of vegan food:

  • Vegan food is nutrient-dense and one can get sufficient protein from plant-based sources such as legumes, nuts, and seeds. Some of the most popular vegan dishes are made with chickpeas and beans which contain higher amounts of proteins than beef or chicken.
  • A vegan diet is also naturally low in saturated fat, and the risk of developing health issues such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes decreases.
  • Vegan food is delicious – One can enjoy a variety of meals without meat, dairy, or eggs. The number of healthy vegan recipes available is constantly growing so you will never get bored! Many people think that vegan food is boring, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
  • Veganism can save money – Animal products are expensive, and meatless meals help us lower our grocery bills. If you want to start saving money go vegan!

Disadvantages of vegan food:

  • Vegan food can be expensive – Fresh fruits and vegetables can be very pricey depending on where you live. This is especially true for vegan staples such as avocado, quinoa, and flaxseeds.
  • It’s very easy to eat vegan on a budget – Many of our dishes are made with cheap ingredients such as rice, beans, and legumes. Eating vegan on a budget is possible, and it doesn’t take much more effort than following a traditional diet.
  • You will need to supplement your meals with vitamin B12 – Which is the only vitamin that cannot be obtained from plant-based sources. Veganism requires supplementation of vitamin B12 which can be found in fortified cereals, nutritional yeast, and supplements.
