As we have discovered from our many vegan journey submissions, a lot of people chose to go vegan for the overall health benefits.
Studies have shown that living a vegan lifestyle can be linked to overall better health in general as vegan diets tend to be rich in nutrients and low in saturated fats.
At Vegan Life Nutrition, we care about what you put into your body, which is why all of our products are made with natural plant-based ingredients to help provide you with the resources needed to live your healthiest life in all stages of your vegan journey!
Happy and Healthy!
We’d like to introduce you to someone who takes their health very seriously and aims to better her health through plant-based eating. Julie Graham, also known as “Juju”, was born and raised in Illinois, but has plans to make her way to California. As California locals, we plan to welcome her and her family with open arms!
Julie became vegan 6 years ago in November. She decided to make the decision due to her family’s history of heart disease and cancer. After discovering the health benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle, such as better heart health and lower risk of cancer, she made the change overnight.
Since becoming vegan, Julie says that she feels like the very best version of herself! “I absolutely love being vegan.” Not only does she feel better physically and mentally, but she says that she is happier with her food choices as she is able to add a bit more variety to her plate while not feeling guilty for overindulging. She says, “I have never been healthier or more fit! This is a lifelong journey and I wish I would have started it so much earlier.”
The Importance of Family Time
Although Julie says that one of the most difficult things about being vegan is finding friends that share the same interests, she has had zero problems convincing her family members to go vegan. Julie is a mother of 3 and everyone in her immediate family including her mom live a plant based lifestyle. That must make family events very fun and easy!
In their freetime, she and her family enjoy getting outside and traveling to new places. Spending time in the fresh air by going for walks and runs allows her to better both her physical and mental health, and she often encourages her family to do the same.
Friendly Advice from Julie
If you are interested in trying out a vegan lifestyle and are not sure where to start, Julie says not to be fearful of trying something new, especially because it is not as difficult as it seems! There are so many vegan resources out there that can help you through your transition and so many helpful vegan mentors within the community, just like Julie.
