Let’s celebrate! Today is World Vegetarian Day and the first day of Vegetarian Awareness Month. The North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) founded World Vegetarian Day in 1978, and established a celebration of all fresh and healthy.
The popularity of vegetarian diets continues to grow. Reasons individuals choose a vegetarian diet could be improved health, a need to address health issues, a desire to promote a cleaner, more sustainable future for the planet, or out of concern about animal welfare.
What are the top reasons why vegetarianism can benefit your body?
Vegetarian food is:
- Low in fats and oils
- Low in animal protein
- Rich in health-promoting/disease-preventing micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants & other phytonutrients)
The 21st century lifestyle has modern diets, high stress levels, lack of exercise and abundance of man-made chemicals. This lifestyle has very real impacts on human health and wellbeing. By living and sustaining a vegetarian lifestyle you could be giving your body its best chance at a happier, healthy and possibly longer life.
Hopewood’s experience demonstrates that fresh natural food, in a predominantly ovo-lacto vegetarian diet, is the best way to achieve wellbeing. We agree wholeheartedly with the old adage “you are what you eat”! We believe food is our medicine.
