What do you think when you hear someone say, “Honesty, I don’t really care about burgers or chips anymore. I’d rather have a salad”? Probably that they are either lying or aren’t real human beings. We get it – despite all your good intentions and attempts to stick to a healthy diet, you still find yourself craving junk food on a daily basis.
In the past few years, more and more Americans have been going meatless and adopting vegan
and vegetarian diets.
While it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact number of vegans and vegetarians in the world today, a look at the search queries ‘vegan’ and ‘vegetarian’ in Google Trends is indicative of the fact that both diets, but especially veganism, have been gaining a massive amount of popularity over the last decade.
From fitness models showing off their perfectly portioned containers to professional athletes measuring out macros, vegan meal prep has become a pretty big trend in healthy eating.
When people think of meal prepping, they may feel overwhelmed, believing you need to have tons of free time, lots of money or fancy kitchen equipment.
Does the thought of having some sautéed vegetables on your plate make you gag unintentionally? You’re not alone. Only 9% of Americans meet the daily recommendation for vegetable intake. Unfortunately, this number explains many of our leading causes of death which are largely preventable by eating a healthy, plant-based diet.
Following a plant-based diet can help prevent, treat, and even reverse most of today’s chronic diseases. Luckily, we know of these powerful effects thanks to a handful of passionate and famous vegan doctors without whom this huge movement wouldn’t have grown nearly as much as it already has.
