Isn't it ironic, that with all the abundance of food choices we have, it's still a challenge to find a meal that's actually good for you? This is especially true if you are single and have a very busy schedule. Sure, there's always food available that has been deemed "healthy" by the FDA. But, is eating sick animals everyday a healthy choice? We grow up being told at home and school that we need milk for strong bones and chicken breast for protein. There is too much modern-day scientific evidence that proves this incorrect. By following a vegan diet, you not only expose yourself to healthy foods, but you also avoid eating food tainted with disease and sickness. As mentioned before though, it is a challenge to follow a vegan diet, especially if you do not live in an area with a large vegan/vegetarian population. The challenge really begins with time management and planning. If you do not plan out your meals and prepare many yourself at home, you will find it very difficult to maintain a healthy vegan diet. More and more restaurants and fast food places are offering more vegan choices on the menus, but the variety is still mediocre at best. So, to succeed with your vegan diet, you must be willing to take the initiative and begin to plan and prepare many of your meals yourself. Once you make it a daily habit, it will become easier and easier. Also, after a while, you will say to yourself "why would I want to go out and grab some cheap greasy food, when I have all this great food right here at home?".
