Being a vegan is not what you eat but your whole lifestyle; a lifestyle which is getting bigger and bigger day by day. But let’s take things from the beginning…
A vegan is a loyal follower of veganism. Vegans do not believe in killing animals in order to eat them or any products that come from them (dairy, milk, cheese, eggs, butter etc.) Also, being a vegan means that you do not buy or wear clothing or jewelry made from animals (leather, fur). Their belief is that animals are beings that feel the pain they have emotions and they also deserve to live without the fear of torture and death so to become food or clothing.
How though, can veganism be connected with digital life?
Bloggers of course, what else!?
My previous post was about fitness, how fitness bloggers (mentors) inspire their followers and how all this fitness mentality became a whole lifestyle. Vegan bloggers are 100% connected with the whole fitness lifestyle! They are a true inspiration source of energy, detox, wellbeing, a true balanced state of mind and body!
A lot of vegan bloggers relate their eating habits with their body performance. According to them it’s amazing how much better you can perform if you detox your body from dairy products and meat.
A lot of athletes embraced the vegan lifestyle and created blogs where their positivity is overflowing and even if you are not a vegan i guess at least you want to try it. They say go vegan for one week, then for one month and then for a life.
Let’s take the example of a great athlete Rich Roll, an ultra-triathlete who in the past was a drug addict and overweight. Through his blog Richroll shares his life journey that led him to be a vegan and strong athlete. Rich is like a superstar both in the fitness and vegan world. He wrote two books, The Plantpower Way: Whole Food Plant-Based Recipes and Guidance for The Whole Family and Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World’s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself, he has an e-shop and apart from being a blogger he is also a great vlogger!
There is whole study based on the vegan mainstream trend and believe me it’s massive. According to a research analysis vegan and vegetarian content is mentioned in the social media, 4.3 million times in 90 days in comparison with Coca-Cola which is mentioned 4.1 million times in the same timeframe *.
If you do a little google research you’ll see that for the last 10 years, veganism as a concept in comparison with obesity, is continuously rising globally.
I must say, up to now I wasn’t a vegan nor a vegetarian but they say…
Eat clean train dirty!
Think about it 😉
