Vegan & Vegetarian
I discuss veganism and similar diets to learn more about this topic, get some listening practice, and learn some good vocabulary and expressions related to this.
Reasons for Going Vegan
I would say peoples’ reasons for going vegan can be broken down into 3 main areas:
Ethical Concerns (killing and harming animals)
Environmental Concerns (damaging the planet)
Health Concerns (living longer and happier)
Which would be your highest priority?
I mentioned a recipe I love to make in the episode, and if anyone’s interested in trying it for themselves, this was the one I originally followed: High Protein Vegan Salad
Fruitarians – only eating fruit, nuts and seeds
Pescatarians – vegetarian diet + seafood
Flexitarians – mostly not meat but sometimes eating meat or fish (flexible + vegetarian)
Vegan – Not eating or using any animal products
Pesky – Annoying
Do you follow a particular diet for health reasons? Or maybe you just prefer the taste.
