Vegan in the Mainstream

A growing number of people are moving toward a vegan diet and nutritionists support this, with many stating that a well-thought-out vegan eating plan could be the most healthy way to live.

“Properly planned vegan diets are healthy, nutritionally adequate and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of many diseases,” said Vandana Sheth, a registered dietitian and nutrition educator in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. Research has found that people who follow a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle enjoy a number of health benefits, Sheth said. These include: lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, a healthier body mass index, decreased risk for heart disease, decreased risk for cancer, and better control and prevention of diabetes.

VegNews Visionary

Every successful company begins with a visionary and a vision. One of these visionaries is Brooklyn native and current San Francisco resident Joseph Connelly, publisher and editor-in-chief of VegNews Magazine. Joe turned his passion for vegan living into an award-winning, robust, multi-media voice for the vegetarian community.

The magazine – with a readership of over 200,000 – and website have won multiple lifestyle honors, including Maggie Awards (think magazine Oscars) for “Best Lifestyle Magazine” three consecutive years.

Here are some of Joe’s suggestions for the veg-curious crowd:

  • Don’t be afraid to try something new. One week, thirty days, just try it. Even after one week, you’ll feel better and notice a difference.

  • Don’t worry about labels. There’s no all or nothing. Do what you can and be easy on yourself. Take it one meal at a time, one day at a time.

  • Be aware of what’s happening with the food supply. There is a huge food movement now to educate people so they can see what is happening. There are books, magazines (like VegNews), movies (Vegucated, Forks over Knives), videos, and hundreds of blogs.
