Glendora Vegetarian Club

Vegan.com says that the word vegan has come to mean anything that is made without animal products. The internet calls the rise of veganism “unstoppable.” Vegan diets, or plant based eating, “can provide significant health benefits compared to non-vegan diets.” (Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics) Remember, eating animals is getting your protein second hand. Let us get our protein first hand by eating plants. Nuts, beans and grains far outweigh meat protein. That is why so many athletes stay in top shape by eating plant based foods exclusively. Go to vegan.com and see their nutrition primer.
