    I am vegetarian and turning more and more vegan. I feel healthier and what is really great (as a vegetarian anyway) is that I can eat a lot of chocolate.

    Of course a vegan diet is also healthier for the planet .

    Owning a juicer is a great start. Get one of those juicers which can also prepare sorbets from frozen fruit, and nut butters. They are called masticating juicers, and are a great investment because they’ll do so much more than juicing. You can also find very good ones between 100$-200$.
