Is it safe for a teenager to be vegan?

Lunes, 4 Noviembre 2019

Being vegan means you don’t consume or use any animal products, which means everything from not eating cheese (I know, I know), to not wearing leather, and only using beauty products that are cruelty-free. Most people choose to try a vegan lifestyle for one of the following reasons: to save the planet by reducing the impact on global warming, for ethical reasons and animal rights, or to improve their health. All are very valid reasons to try it even for a short period of time. Being vegan means being more conscious of what goes in and on your body, and it can require planning ahead whenever possible to set yourself up for success.

Like anything, adopting a new lifestyle doesn’t happen overnight. Here are some tips that should help get you get started. Chose a few at a time and implement them slowly. (And of course, make sure you talk to a health or nutrition professional to make sure your nutritional needs are met on a vegan diet!)
