There are several reasons why going vegan is becoming mainstream. The motives include health benefits, animal welfare, and concern for the environment. One thing is for sure, the vegan lifestyle is much more acceptable as the knowledge expands throughout the food movement. There is also a tendency for others to try the plant-based lifestyle if they know someone that is vegan and view the benefits. Another reason to go vegan deals with the big C group, the curious and the creative. It’s the ability to change one’s thinking from the image that vegans eat only dull salads.
