Vegetarian Diet: 3 Tips to a Healthy Life – Veggie Guide

A Vegetarian diet, on top of being great for the planet and for the animals, is the healthiest change you can make.

We are what we eat. Now think for a moment about that phrase, what if we actually were what we eat? It might make us think twice about eating junk! Eating junk food regularly can seriously cause damage to your body in many ways. These can include obesity, heart disease, difficulty remembering and weakened thinking capability.

Vegetarian Diet

It may be that upon reading, this triggers a sense of responsibility in you. Your body depends on your eating habits. Your health may benefit from considering a healthy diet, let’s take a look at the health benefits of going veggie:

Here are just some of the ways you can improve your plate every day.

· Start a vegan diet

· How to go vegan

· What ways to incorporate more protein in your diet

Start a vegan diet

If you have sought to lose weight but are struggling, a vegan diet is an approach you may like to consider. Cutting out certain foods altogether can assist with weight loss when managed carefully, in a calorie-controlled way.

Veganism means cutting out all food relating to animals. This is not just meat but any food which is derived from a n animal as a by-product. For instance, milk, cheese, yoghurt, eggs, and honey.

Making the step to becoming vegan may seem daunting at first. If you are a regular meat eater, you may benefit from weaning yourself off slowly rather than trying to do it all at once as your willpower and palette may struggle to stay focused on keeping to such a strict diet, all at once.

Advantages of a Vegetarian Diet

A vegan diet provides a bunch of health benefits, in fact, some diseases that don’t seem to have any cure can be improved by simply adopting a vegan lifestyle.

Surprisingly, a vegan diet has shown the prevention of many significant cancers and diseases relating to the heart, bowel, stomach and brain. Again, in order to stay healthy, you may also need to take measured vitamins, proteins, and carbs to avoid any deficiencies.

Our body is most precious to us no matter how much we bash our looks, but at the end of the day, we all want to put the best sort of diet in our bodies and prefer to stay fit for the sake of mental peace.

How to Go Vegan

· Small steps that lead to a strict vegetarian diet

If you are struggling to find a way to start a vegan diet but don’t know how to start, this guide may help you.

Every change in life needs time to adjust. You have to start slow. If you have never tried anything like this, try a vegetarian diet first to slow transition.

If you’re already a vegetarian but want to shift to veganism, then you could try a vegan breakfast for a month and monitor the changes in your health. Afterwards, you can decide whether you’re ready for the next step.

Once you have overcome this first hurdle, you will feel more confident starting a vegan diet. You can have a little cheat day on the weekend initially, but after you’ve correctly adjusted to this diet, you’ll find it easier to stick to it as you see the various health benefits.

What ways to incorporate more protein in your diet

Though a vegan diet has several benefits, there is a risk of a lack of protein in the body. So don’t forget to incorporate a portion of proteins into your plate;

· Making a vegan plate

While making your plate, the first thing to remember is to properly wash your hands and use a hand dryer instead of any other material/surface to dry your hand for better hygiene. Divide your plate into four food quarters. There should always be one portion of protein. We usually get our protein from meat so you will have to introduce beans, peanuts, lentils, Tofu, and seeds into your diet to get the protein you need.

1. Your plate should consist of quarters; there should be a quarter of your favourite greens.

2. Then a side of carbohydrates like potatoes, rice or corn.

If you have diabetes, you can go with non-starchy vegetables like carrots or zucchini /courgette.

3. Then, fill the next quarter with some flavourful whole grains or starches. These can be whole wheat pasta, corn meal or you could seek out some tasty recipes available online.

4. Finally, add some protein. Beans, pulses and seeds are all great providers of protein.

Vegan Sex Positions

Doing it doggy piggy style!

Veggly releases new list of sex position names, chosen by vegan users & vegan sexpert.

A picture containing text, different, various, several

Description automatically generated

  1. Piggy style 
  2. The Cow
  3. Reverse Cow 
  4. The Chicken 
  5. The Llama 
  6. Octopus 
  7. Leapfrog 
  8. The Spider 
  9. The Ram 
  10. The ‘I love riding ewe!’

The move from Veggly is part of a new campaign to give equal rights to all animals, particularly cows, pigs, chickens and sheep, that don’t enjoy the same protection that is given to dogs and cats. 

After polling several thousand of Veggly’s 500,000 users across the world, the final top 10 was selected and vetted by world-renowned vegan sexpert Venus O’Hara

Commenting on the new names, Founder of Veggly, Alex Felipelli, said: “Doggy style is one of the world’s most popular and easy sex positions. This is fine, but why not give pigs, cows, sheep and chickens some credit? They don’t get treated the same as dogs, or cats. All animals deserve to be protected and celebrated, so how about we name some sex positions after them instead? 

“We are honoured to partner with Venus O’Hara, a leading vegan sexpert and ‘Orgasm Activist’ on this project. She has been very helpful to us as a consultant on these new names and positions, and tips on how to ensure plant-based pleasure for all daters and new relationships.”

Also commenting on the new list of names, Venus O’Hara said: “Vegan sex is all about variety. You will notice that there is no equivalent of the missionary position on our list. Although missionary is probably the most popular position, it is also considered the most mundane one. Doggy style is also very popular but we think this is unfair on pigs. In fact, dogs have an unfair advantage over pigs in many aspects of non-vegan life. Even in the fetish world, there are kinksters who practise ‘puppy play’ which involves role-playing as a dog on all fours and barking, often while wearing a dog collar. We believe that ‘piggy play’ could be the next big thing among kinky couples. But with vegan leather accessories, of course. Whichever position you choose, don’t forget those vegan condoms, and have fun!” 

Veggly, which now has over 500,000 users, is available throughout the world (users in 181 countries), Veggly is set to continue its rapid growth thanks to its growing army of vegan volunteers around the world who have worked together to translate the app from English into Spanish, German, Portuguese, French, Italian, Danish and Polish, with many more languages on the way.

The Highs and Lows of Dating a Vegan Freegan

In the U.S., between 30% and 40% of the food supply is wasted, with around 218.9 pounds of food waste per person sent for disposal. Factors such as over-consumption and poor planning of one’s trips to the supermarket, coupled with faulty storage at the retail level and many more factors, are difficult to excuse when you consider that world hunger is on the rise and affects almost 10% of people globally. Freeganism seeks to turn waste on its head. It is an alternative philosophy of living that seeks to minimize one’s participation in capitalism and to limit one’s consumption of capitalistic resources. The aim is to live as “freely” as possible, buying “nothing” (or close to it) and to live in less densely populated areas so they can escape modern consumer behaviors. What are some of the highs and lows that you can expect from dating a vegan freegan?

If you are vegan and you meet an attractive freegan, you will be delighted to know that they are probably vegans themselves. Freegans are firmly focused on ending animal cruelty, while also fighting against human rights abuse, the degradation of the environment, and climate change. Many freegans began as vegans, becoming increasingly convinced over time that capitalistic ambition and greed and meat consumption are inexorably linked. Animal welfare is definitely one of the defining values of this lifestyle.

Dating by the Dumpster

If you love nothing more than dining out at a fancy vegan restaurant, the downside is that you may not be doing much of that with your lover. Freegans are more into dumpster diving— in fact, this pastime is a core part of their lifestyle, as it enables them to find food that has been thrown away but that is actually in excellent condition. Some also make a living from the things they find in dumpsters, thus helping them avoid working in traditional jobs. In case you’re worried about the cops getting involved, don’t. Checking out trash is legal if done in a respectful, law-abiding way. Essentially, once trash is left at the dumpster, it becomes part of the “public domain.” If a romantic evening is on your mind, then make sure your home is tidy. 

How Will Your Date End?

Freegans generally avoid renting or buying a home, preferring instead to squat on abandoned property. Finally, remember that they prefer to bike or walk places instead of riding in cars (they are, however, willing to hitchhike). So plan a date close to home so you can take a romantic walk to your chosen spot.

Are All Freegans Extreme?

If you start meeting more people from this community, you will find that there are many levels of freeganism. For instance, some freegans do enjoy working, but they will probably choose either volunteer work or work that can help people, animals, or the environment. Some do rent homes and if so, they most probably share their home with other dwellers to reduce space wastage and cut down on costs.
Freeganism is a fascinating movement that can help put an end to many current problems, such as climate change and food wastage. Freegans are mostly vegan, since animal rights are a key value in their lifestyle. Dating a freegan can be unique, since you can learn about the art of dumpster diving with intelligence. You can also learn how to lower your carbon footprint by getting used to environmentally friendly means of transport (such as cycling). Freegans are sometimes considered “extreme” but if living simply and cutting down on consumption sound appealing, then a freegan might just be your perfect match.

Top 9 Niche Dating Apps in 2022

Over the past decade, dating apps have proved that they are here to stay. Nowadays, most people have tried them, or at the very least know someone who has. However, the more popular they become, the more they are criticized for being too superficial and damaging users’ self-esteem. The initial conclusion here would be that this incredibly popular form of dating isn’t for everyone.

This is where new ways to do online dating start popping up. The best niche dating apps cater to specific groups of people with specific interests or traits who don’t feel contemplated by the most well known options. This kind of app has become even more popular, as pointed out by the Wall Street Journal, during the pandemic. Now, it seems that more and more people are opting for dating apps that gather people who already have something in common. Whether it’s shared interests or specific traits and lifestyles, many users now want likeminded matches.

For this list, we’ve selected apps that truly make an effort to do something different. Although they can get surprisingly specific, it’s good to see that online dating is now more accessible to different types of people. It’s important to note that some of these might offer better results depending on your location, after all, they are niche dating apps. 

Dig – for dog lovers

Dig is a niche dating app made specifically for people who live a “dog-forward” lifestyle. Pet lovers no longer need to worry about finding a match who doesn’t get along with their furry best friend. Since everyone on the app is already a dog lover, there is an added bonus of possibly meeting new dogs as well!

Available at: App store – US/UK/DE/BR and Google play – US/UK/DE/BR

S’more – for the non-superficial

S’More defines itself as an “Anti-superficial dating app”. The reason? Well, in this app, you need to chat with your matches before you can see what they look like. To start, users can only see blurry pictures of each other, which then start to become clearer as the chat progresses. S’More definitely strives for more meaningful connections and appeals to people who are tired of the more common formats for dating apps.

Available at: App store – US/UK only

Veggly – for the plant based

Nuit – for astrology match

With the free app version, you can add friends, view profiles, start chats, view events, and join communities.

When it comes to making online dating more inclusive, there is still a lot of work to be done, although a number of other gay dating app options are available on the market most of them popularize with the male audience. HER came to offer a safe space for women in this niche.

Available at: App Store – US/UK/DE/BR and Google Play – US/UK/DE/BR

10 Tips for a First Vegan Date (For Vegetarians and Omnivores)

A first date can be quite challenging by itself. Wanting to make a good first impression is important, but can also come with some anxiety. Things aren’t so different when it comes to vegans. However, if you’re a vegetarian or an omnivore, there is are some extra steps to be taken in order to not be disrespectful by accident. Do you want to get it right on your first vegan date? Then check out these 10 tips!

1 – Restaurant

Vai chamar o Veg-Crush pra jantar? É ideal verificar se o restaurante é vegano ou se possui Are you taking your Veg-Crush out for dinner? It’s important to check if the restaurant is vegan or at least has good vegan options. This one might seem a bit obvious, but many restaurants use animal products even for vegetarian recipes. On the other hand, the simple fact that a restaurant serves these types of products would already go against the ideas behind veganism. For this reason, don’t forget to do some research; this will positively show you’re invested in your date.

2 – Animals

Animal welfare is a top priority for veganism. Because it is a main aspect of the vegan movement, it is also the source of many issues in interactions between vegans and carnivores. So, if you want your date to go well, don’t even think about making jokes about it or trying to invalidate your date’s ideas about this issue. If you bring this subject up with previous knowledge and demonstrate empathy for the animals, you’re sure to make a positive impression. This also signals that, even though you’re still not a vegan, you respect and understand the importance of veganism.

3 – Meat

Avoid eating any and all types of meat when you’re around your date. For vegans, not eating meat goes beyond personal preference. It is the end product of abuse and poor treatment so, for many vegans, this can be offensive.

4 – Proteins

Asking where the other person “gets their proteins from” is repetitive for vegans and can make the conversation quite boring. It might seem like just a question, but many people ask it as a joke or to embarrass vegans. It is still really nice if you’re interested in how a vegan diet actually works. There are better ways to ask and show you’re interested. For instance, you can ask “What are some of your favorite vegan foods?”. The important thing here is to not insinuate that a vegan diet in and of itself may not be enough to have a healthy life.

5 – Salad

You won’t win anyone over by offering a salad as an option. Vegans are human being too, and they also like richer, or even unhealthier, foods every now and then. Most vegans may prefer a Veg-Burger or other indulgent meals. Don’t be afraid to try something fun!

6 – Jokes

When you’re talking to your date, avoid jokes about veganism and animals. Disrespecting the other person’s values, lifestyle and ideas can drastically affect your night. Respect is one of the most important things in any relationship, so don’t start off with the wrong foot.

“Plants feel pain too!”

Even if you’ve heard about this before, don’t say or suggest that plants feel pain. Because they don’t have a central nervous system, plants cannot feel pain. This is simply false information, and it’s used to try and “demoralize” veganism. If you say anything of the sort, it’s very likely your date will look at you with a dumbfounded expression.

8 – Fish

Avoid asking “Not even fish?” to your date. Although many people still (!) don’t know about this, fish are animals too. They feel pain, fear and have the right to a healthy and clean ecossystem. So no, your vegan date doesn’t eat fish.

9 – Alcholoic beverages

Many wines and beers are clarified with animal products, like gelatin. It might not seem like much, but the use of animal protein during the fabrication process already makes this already disqualifies non-vegan wines and beers from your list of options. You’ll definitely stand out by choosing the correct beverage for your first vegan date.

10 – Environment

The environment is a theme that can elevate your conversation during the date. It can be approached in a positive manner and make your date lighter and more meaningful at the same time. It’s important to be well informed when talking about this subject, so try to keep that in mind.

What is Vegan Skincare and Why Should it be on Your Beauty Routine?

Ask any vegan, and they will tell you this: more than just a diet, veganism is a lifestyle. Vegans who are dedicated to their practice avoid animal products and ingredients in all areas of their life, including what they put on their skin. If you’ve noticed lately, vegan skincare is taking over mainstream beauty as more and more conscious consumers choose products that are sustainable and free of any kind of cruelty directed to unsuspecting animals. However, what’s causing this shift is not just for people to stand for what they know is right. Vegan skincare products have incredible benefits you won’t find in other more traditional formulations. 

Let’s break it down even further. 

vegan skincare

What is Vegan Skincare? 

If you have an idea of what veganism is, it’s basically the same only that the products we’re tackling are those specifically for your skin. 

A vegan skincare routine can be seen as a beauty hack as it has a ton of benefits, but it’s also more than that. Vegan skincare uses cosmetics and beauty products that do not contain any animal or animal-derived ingredients or by-products whatsoever. 

What this means is that traditional ingredients you commonly see on the labels of non-vegan cosmetics and skincare products such as honey, beeswax, collagen, keratin, and lanolin are not used.

Other animal-derived ingredients that vegan skincare brands don’t incorporate in their products are hyaluronic acid, squalene, stearic acid, elastin, carmine, and silk. What these vegan brands tend to use instead are plant-based or synthetic ingredients. 

Vegan vs Cruelty-Free: What’s The Difference?  

You might think they’re synonymous, but the truth is that there are vegan products that can actually not be cruelty-free and there are cruelty-free products that are not vegan.  

Some “vegan” products only claim to be vegan because they exclude the production process. So while the ingredients used may not necessarily contain any kind of animal product or by-product, they may have still been tested on animals. 

Cruelty-free products can sometimes contain animal products even though they don’t test on animals. 

If you really want to use skincare products that are both vegan and cruelty-free, make sure to do your research first. Find out if the brand you are looking into is true to their word. 

What Are The Benefits of Vegan Skincare?

Now, you don’t necessarily need to be vegan to reap the benefits of a vegan skincare routine. 

Vegan skincare products are not only healthier, cleaner, and kinder as compared to their more traditional counterparts, they’re also inclusive. They’re great for oily, combination, dry skin—basically, every skin type that exists. 

If you’re still undecided, here are some reasons why vegan skincare should be on your beauty routine. 

Kinder To Animals and Our Planet 

Though skincare products take great care of our skin, it wouldn’t feel as kind if the products we are using hurt those who are innocent.  

Skincare brands and products that are both vegan and cruelty-free make sure that no animals were harmed in their creation and production. When we consciously buy these better alternatives, we take part in actively lowering the demand for products that use animal ingredients or those that rely on animal testing. 

The best vegan skincare products are also 100% natural and organic. These plant-based products don’t cause any harm to our environment after use as they break down into non-harmful components. 

Furthermore, vegan brands tend to be very conscious of packaging. They opt for sustainable and easily recyclable materials instead of plastic. 

Kinder To You 

Our skin absorbs much of what we apply to it so if we’re opting for products that have toxins, harsh chemicals, or other harmful ingredients, just imagine the damage they could potentially bring to our skin. 

Vegan skincare and beauty products typically contain fewer ingredients that will irritate or aggravate your skin or any skin conditions you may have. They also tend to have shorter ingredient lists so that you can understand exactly what you’re putting on your face and body. 

Because they are often made with natural ingredients, vegan skincare formulas are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that will nourish your skin to keep it looking and feeling fresh for longer. 

Tips On Making The Switch 

If you are planning on switching, the first thing to do is to research, research, and research. Educate yourself so that you can be better equipped as you begin your transition from the products you’re using now to a vegan skincare routine. 

Remember to take your time. It’s okay to start small and slow. There’s no need to throw out all your current products in the trash—that will just be wasteful and counterproductive. Swap one or two steps in your routine first and the rest can follow. And know that by doing this small thing, you’re already creating an impact. 

If you’re ready, take it a step further. Vegan skincare goes beyond the products you are using. At the end of the day, the health benefits of a vegan diet coupled with an active lifestyle can help keep your skin and your body strong, young, and in great shape. 

Embrace meat-free Mondays or go flexitarian when you can. Try easy vegan recipes once you’re a little more confident and comfortable about it. All these little things add up. 

With a vegan skincare routine, you can keep your skin healthy and radiant and take care of the planet and all its animals at the same time. So try it out for yourself! Your skin—and Mother Earth—deserves it.

Tip of the Day: Complete your Veggly Profile!

A complete and up to date veggly profile can improve your chances of a Veg-Match. Check out this #tipoftheday for all our Veggly users:

4 Ways to improve your Veggly Profile

  1. Upload all 9 pictures. First impression is important! Use this space to show who you are: use some pictures clearly showing yourself and some showing your lifestyle: what you like to do, your pets etc. BTW, if you don’t have at least on picture, your Veggly profile will not be shown to potential Veg-Matches
  2. Complete your about section: describe yourself, what you like to do and interesting things about you. What about vegan/ vegetarian specifics? Use this to show potential Veg-Matches how much you love the animals, the environment etc. A Veggly profile is SO much more than a regular profile 😊
  3. Use the app frequently. The default order of people’s feed uses mostly when they were last online. That means when you login, your Veggly profile goes to the top and is presented to more people. That means more chances of a Veg-Match!
  4. Consider changing your filters of age and distance. This may not be an option for you but it’s worth revising if, to find a Veg-Match, you wouldn’t be willing to go a bit farther away or out of your age range.

Tip of the Day: Reorder your Veggly Feed!

Did you know that you can reorder your veggly feed? Check out this #tipoftheday for all our Veggly users.

Have you ever felt like you see too many people that are not that close to you? Or perhaps you felt that you are seeing always the same people? Read on for some tips on how to improve that.

Veggly Feed

When you open your Home screen on Veggly, you will be presented with the list of users within your interests and filters. The default order is by users who were last online on Veggly. But you can change it to the following options at the floating top-left “order” icon.

The Veggly Feed Options:

  1. Default: By default, the Veggly feed will show you people within your filters. The most important factor here is when users were last online. As a side note, when you login, your profile moves to the top, which increases your chances of a Veg-Match.
  2. Distance: Shows whoever is closer to you. If distance is really important to you, you can use this order so you see first the ones that are around you 😉
  3. New Users: Shows profiles that were recently added. It’s a great filter if you have seen most of the profiles within your filters. You can use it to see those that you have not seen yet.
