Vegetarian Dining at eastZeast
There are many reasons behind why people choose to move towards a vegetarian or vegan diet. Some of these reasons include people wanting to live longer by improving their diet, living healthier lifestyles or wanting to contribute towards reducing pollution that is associated with eating a carnivorous diet. Other reasons include people wanting to preserve the Earth’s natural resources or due to ethical beliefs against the slaughter and consumption of animals.
According to research published by the Vegetarian Times, an estimated 70 percent of all diseases, including one-third of all cancers, are related, or worsened due to diet. Further research concludes that a vegetarian diet reduces the risk of developing chronic degenerative diseases including obesity, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and several types of cancer including colon, breast, prostate, stomach, lung and oesophageal cancer.
There has been a wealth of scientific research that validates both the health and environmental benefits of consuming a plant-based diet. But don’t be mistaken into thinking that steering away from meat means you will be subjected to eating boring and flavourless food. Many restaurants are guilty for providing vegetarian options on their menu’s that lack creativity and imagination, but this couldn’t be further away from the choices available at eastZeast.
