It is a great way to explore new foods you would never bother picking up and realising they taste incredible. Maybe you’ll learn about ingredients you didn’t know existed, which is always fun.
3. New Restaurants
This now means you can check out the local veggie restaurants which are popping up everywhere and normally have incredible menus which are filled with fresh and healthy dishes, you’re a body with thank you later!
It is a much cleaner way of eating if you would normally opt for greasy fried meats, lots of red meats or processed meats. You will know where all your food comes from and how it is made which is a much fresher way to live.
5. Kinder To Environment
If everyone attempted this, so many animals would be saved as the diet is ultimately much better for the environment and livelihood of animals! Why should animals have their lives created and taken for our edible dispense?
6. More Protein
People often don’t realise you can just as much or even more protein from a vegetarian diet without eating any meat. Many meat substitutions contain more natural protein than meats do, which is ultimately better for you – winner!

If you are trading the fatty meats for fresh ingredients then you will be on track to shifting those awkward extra pounds!
Meat can be really expensive depending on the cut and type of meat and if it super cheap do you really want to be eating it? A vegetarian diet is much cheaper even when you include meat substitutes.
