Should I Go Vegan?*

I want to start this post by saying I'm definitely not a vegan currently but it is genuinely something I've considered a few times over the last year or so. The vegan lifestyle is everywhere you look right now, so it's impossible to not think about it. I also follow some amazing vegan bloggers who I really admire and every time I see a new post from them about their journey, I feel so inspired to try it for myself. Though I do feel quite well informed when it comes to being vegan, there are still things I'm not 100% sure about so I was thrilled when HealthLabs got in touch and asked if I'd like to collaborate and talk about my feelings around it and if it would ever be something I could do.
Should I Go Vegan?*

Who are HealthLabs?

HealthLabs are a private wellness company that offer a variety of health tests for people based in the US. Whilst there are a number to choose from, the topic of today's post is the vegan test. The aim of these tests is to help detect any deficiencies of some of the most common nutrients and vitamins in our body. This is great for vegans so they can see if they're lacking in anything due to their diet and if so they can go onto get advice on how to fix this and lead an even healthier lifestyle. These tests are also great for people like me who might be considering going vegan but aren't sure if it's for them or not. It really is a brilliant idea for anyone wanting to know how to live a healthier lifestyle and maintain a better diet full of only things that are going to be beneficial. At the moment they're only available in the US but this means for any of you lucky enough to live there, you have over 4500 certified locations to choose from and the tests themselves only take around 10 minutes so it's a really quick and easy process. Another bonus is that you can get your results in 1-3 days which is an incredibly fast turnaround. 

The Vegan Tests

There are a range of vegan tests that you can choose from but the one I'm drawn to is the basic 'Should I Be Vegan?' test. This specific test will look out for 18 meat and dairy products meaning if your body has been reacting to something and causing you to feel unwell but you can't pickpoint what it is, this test will figure it out for you. Maybe you're allergic to an animal-derived product but had no idea? I love that you can basically get confirmation of whether being vegan will genuinely benefit you, and if that's the case, why would you not make the change? Price wise the vegan tests start start at $149 which might seem expensive but compared to a lot of other companies, is actually incredibly affordable for what it is. For an even bigger discount though you can use my code for 25% off - FOODANDOTHERLOVES25.

My final thoughts

The vegan lifestyle has been spoken about countless times due to it's amazing health benefits for both physical and mental health and so this is the thing that has always gravitated me towards it. Whilst I try to eat well and my diet is a millions miles better than it was a few years ago, knowing just how much my health could improve even more by adopting a vegan diet, only makes me even more keen to at least give it a try. Over the last few months I've been making a real conscious effort anyway to cut down on the amount of meat I eat and because being vegan has become so popular, it means exciting alternatives are becoming more and more available so I do feel it's definitely something I could do over time. I think the vegan tests available from HealthLabs are incredibly useful and really supply you with plenty of information and advice on whether it's something that is genuinely right for you or not. I think even if these tests only encourage people to think about becoming vegan or just make small changes, then they're worth it!

I'd love to know if you're vegan and how you've found the change? or is it something you're considering too like me?
