Caring for the animals
Most of us would have grown up having a pet in the family that we treat like a family member. We love our dogs and cats but we can extend this to other species as well.
We have a choice, we do not need to eat animals or animal products.
Apart from ethical reason, eating animals and animal products are proven to be linked to various cancers, heart diseases, diabetes etc.
Why not save yourself and save the animals at the same time. Go mettafood!
Caring for the environment
When you adopt a whole food plant based dietary lifestyle, you do more than just caring for your own health. No doubt having good health means you have more choices in how you live your life and what you want to achieve in life. But more than that, adopting a mettafood dietary lifestyle means that you are also impacting the environment in an enormous way.
Animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. It is great if you are taking public transport or riding a bike to work, but if you adopt a whole food plant based dietary lifestyle, you are contributing even more to helping the environment.
The impact of our food choices on the environment is vast. Overfishing, coastal dead zones, wild life extinction are some of the consequences. We need to leave a better world for our children and the generations to come.
To have a wider perspective of what is happening in our world, have a read of this article by Bruce Monger, PhD, a Senior Lecturer and Researcher in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University.
At Mettafood, we are whole food plant based enthusiasts, on a journey of optimal health for ourselves and others.
We read and listen to the work of nutrition and medical experts such as:
We want to be healthy not just for now but till our old age. We also appreciate that the by product of our eating lifestyle contributes positively to the planet, it's environment and the living beings within it. Win! Win! Win!
