Consider “Going Vegan” One Day per Week
While the doctors here at The Winchester Institute of Chiropractic Health and Wellness acknowledge the prospect of a strictly vegan diet is daunting for most individuals, it is possible to reap many of the benefits of this lifestyle by going vegan as little as ONE DAY PER WEEK.
For The Health Of It
Did you know, by committing to going vegan one day per week you and your family will ingest 35 pounds less meat per year, which is great for your heart. Diets based on plant foods, such as well-balanced vegetarian diets, could best prevent nutrient deficiencies as well as diet-related chronic diseases.
Go Vegan, Go Green
You will also conserve water, prevent erosion, repopulate our ocean’s fish stock, and reduce fuel consumption. Plant based diets may combat global warming. The vegan diet is more environmentally friendly than diets incorporating animal products. The burning of fossil fuels (for meat production and distribution) and non-carbon dioxide emissions associated with animal waste contribute to global warming.
Cents That Make Sense
Going vegan is also easy on the pocketbook because in the long run it can improve your health, elongate your life and “lower costs associated with healthcare.” And produce tends to be more budget-friendly than meats, packaged foods or prepared meals.
There is ample evidence that people not only survive on such a diet, but that they thrive. Make sure you speak to one of our physicians Dr. Dana Winchester, Dr. Kevin Firestine or Dr. Lindsay Sneyd, to come up with a personalized treatment plan for you.
