Looking to try a vegan diet?
Moving towards a more plant based diet can have benefits for your personal health and the health of the planet. The lower the meat, fish and dairy content, the lower the environmental impact. Find out more about some of the environmental and health benefits of reducing meat intake on the Eating Better Coalition website. You can also calculate your carbon footprint and see how you match up against the UK average.
If you are following a vegan diet, make sure you are keeping a balanced intake of all your key food groups, the Government’s Eat Well guide shows you what your breakdown should be and encourages us to eat more beans and pulses.
