Join the herbivorous foodie revolution

Vegan cuisine has exploded in popularity over the last decade or so. Once considered niche, it’s now as much a culinary movement as it is a lifestyle choice. Vegan restaurants are on the rise, serving truly gourmet food that is less about mimicking familiar dishes and more about all out culinary creativity. The point being: you don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy vegan food! That said, you can now source meat free burgers that are legitimately… well, burger-like! Here are a few of the advantages of bringing more plant-based dishes into your diet:

  1. Your health! Adopting a predominantly plant based diet has a myriad proven benefits – lowering blood sugar levels and blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease, staving off cancer, helping you maintain a healthy weight, improving kidney function… the list goes on!
  2. The planet’s health! Eating more plants reduces our impact on the planet – after all it takes a huge amount of land and resources to raise livestock. If we all ate a little less meat, we’d free up land, save millions of litres of water and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
  3. At Karma, we always source our meat ethically. But around the world, the commodification of domesticated animals is happening on an industrial scale. Less demand for meat means fewer animals – and hopefully therefore better conditions for them.
  4. Vegan food done well is delicious! And as it continues to go more mainstream, there’s a huge amount of choice – both in restaurants and in supermarkets. Which means going plant-based isn’t a sacrifice – it’s an adventure!
