How Healthy is a Vegan Diet?

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.


Where Do You Get Your Protein?

Good sources of vegan protein are: legumes, grains, vegetables, nuts & seeds, tofu, tempeh, seitan, buckwheat, quinoa and amaranth. There is no biological need to consume animal products, it's a choice.

A plant-strong diet provides all the nutrients needed for vibrant health, a lean physique and amazing fitness. See vegan athlete Frank Medrano with a stunning performance - 100% plant powered.

By the way: the world’s strongest animals are plant eaters.
