We find ourselves regularly explaining how we aren't vegan but rather plant based. The listener often has a perplexed look on their face.
Simply put the wholefoods plants on our plate are not boring miserable side portions but a vibrant and flavourful main dish.
Plant- Based and Vegans do share some similarities
Both eat lots of plants
Both have an increased fruit and vegetable intake
They cut back on animal products,
Reduce the risk of common food induced health problems
Where they differ:
Restricts ALL animal products including eggs and honey
Don't wear animal products or use products tested on animals
There is a chance of eating too much processed vegan foods like ice cream!
Eat more wholefood plants while cutting back or eliminating animal products and processed foods
Some followers may choose to eat a little meat
May be healthier as it encourages more whole foods
Research and education have shown us that the manufacturing of common everyday foods and it's farming practices often have detrimental affects to an individuals health and state of well-being.,
Revived Lotus is an advocate for whole food plant-based eating it's good for health, sustainable for the environment and positive for the mind.
Plants have properties that work with the body to bring out the best in our health.
Therefore we have chosen to have an awareness of what we are consuming by being mindful in our choices. As we discover and learn we use our platform to share this information with you. At times we may consume foods that fall into categories which aren't good for our health or sustainable. But we are still on a journey working towards bettering ourselves and the environment. Remember wherever you are on your journey keep going at a pace that suits you for a better health and better tomorrow
