Are you ready for the BIG VEG Challenge?
The first of October marks the beginning of World Veg Month and what better time to have a go at SAFE’s Big Veg Challenge? A 30-day pledge to help stop animal suffering one meal at a time! And don’t worry; we’ll be there to help you out along the way.
You will be in good company. Tons of people have already signed up for the Big Veg challenge, including musician Joe Cotton. The hottest vegetarian celebrities for 2015 have also been named: director James Cameron and journalist Samantha Hayes.
The Go Veg message is reaching a wide audience. Several beauty queens appeared on the Good Morning Show on Wednesday to promote Go Veg: Miss Earth Anna-Lisa Christiane, Miss World Grand International NZ Georgette Jackson, and Miss Pinup NZ Bettie Rage. Those interested in health were happy to see vegan bodybuilder Brayden Green sharing his story. Children have been able to participate through a colouring competition.
Why not join them and become a part of Go Veg October? When you sign up for the challenge you’ll receive free recipes, plenty of advice on nutrition and tips for eating out, meal plans to get you started and even access to a group for swapping ideas to help keep you motivated.
Animals are suffering right now across New Zealand and by Going Veg for 30 days, you can prevent an estimated 8 animals from being eaten. But there’s more, eating a plant based diet can do wonders for your health - lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. Veg diets are also naturally low in saturated fat, high in fibre, and full of vitamins and minerals!
By Going Veg you can give the earth a break too. Raising animals for food is one of the largest contributors to environmental degradation worldwide, and contributes to deforestation, air and water pollution, land degradation, loss of topsoil, climate change, the overuse of resources including oil and water, and loss of biodiversity. The United Nations now encourages a move towards a plant based diet.
So why not give it a go? You’ll be in good company with all these familiar faces who have opted for veg power.
Sign up now and take the first step to a more compassionate lifestyle!
