Body and soul: the main vegan health benefits
It comes as no surprise that perhaps one of the key benefits of vegan diets is that it promotes a healthy lifestyle. From less saturated fat consumption, through to reducing pain from arthritis, lowering risk of heart disease and even lowering blood sugar levels. So why hasn’t everyone moved over to a vegan diet?
There’s a myth that veganism is a difficult path to take, and that cooking meat-free, animal-free meals is difficult. Whilst it is true that there is a steep learning curve, there are plenty of easy-to-cook meat-free recipes available, as well as ones as exciting for the more seasoned cook (pun intended).
Here’s to good health!
Be environmentally friendly by choosing sustainability
Next in line in the list of benefits of being vegan, is that by choosing a diet that is completely animal-product free, you’re subscribing to a lifestyle that promotes better animal welfare, fairness for farming, and above all, champions sustainability above all else.
But what exactly does sustainability mean? According to the World Wildlife Fund For Nature (WWF), sustainability is:
‘…an economic activity that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.’
Here at Flora, we adhere to that sentiment completely, as our Flora product range is crafted with sustainability in mind, taking into account the meat-free nature of the product, and also the better use of resources wherever possible.

Cost-efficient dining on a vegan diet
This benefit of being vegan can be a major motivator for a lot of meat-free eaters out there. Not only does the over-consumption of meat come with a range of potential health risks over time, but it can also be a strain on the wallet. Trends come and go in food, supermarket chains reinvent themselves and new ways of eating and living happen time after time, but what never changes is the price of meat and fish. Animal products are expensive, and that’s just a fact. Why not spend a little less and enjoy a meat-free lifestyle, leaving you with a little extra cash in your back pocket for the rest of life’s treats and activities?
