Nota Bene: This is a guest post from our friends at Effing Vegan. While neither Jason nor I subscribe to a vegan lifestyle, we believe there are many paths to a healthy life, and veganism is certainly one of them. Incorporating more vegetables and plant-based foods is an excellent choice for any person looking to be healthier – whether you consume animal products or not.
