What Is “Plant-Based” Diet?
“Vegan” (what we actually refer to as 100% plant-based) is a term brought up in the 1940’s which entails the concept of abstaining from the consumption of animal products. This means not using any animal products – in the menu, in the wardrobe, nor for recreational purposes. You may think that it is a crazy idea from the 20th century, however plant-based living has existed in human cultures for thousands of years and has impacted certain religions. Even Japan used to be nearly plant-based just a hundred years ago!
