Vegan is an unprecedented boom.
Even Japan, which is behind the world, is said to be ‘2020 is the first year of vegan.’.
The term “vegan” is becoming more common in food and restaurants.
When you actually try to change your life to Vegan life little by little, I think some people wonder what to change.
This time, I would like to introduce that even non-vegan people can easily adopt it.
- I’m interested in vegan, but I don’t know what to do!
- I want to lose meat!
- I am interested in animal protection!
- I want to live an ecological life!
From milk to plant-based milk
This is what I did during the day because I wanted to change my diet.
I started buying soy milk instead of buying milk that day.
The price of milk and soy milk does not change much.
Although milk has a short shelf life of only a few days, soy milk lasts for 3 months, making it convenient to buy in bulk.
In addition, soymilk before opening can be stored at room temperature without any problem.
Therefore, bulk soy milk does not take up space in the refrigerator.
Marusan’s organic unadjusted soymilk is sold at around 157 yen for create.
In Japan, plant-based milk is the only cheap soy milk available. However, there are many lineups overseas, so you can buy various plant-based milk
But In Japan, there are actually many products that can replace meat.
Tofu, Koya tofu, Atuage(deep-fried tofu), Aburaage(deep-fried tofu), Kurumafu, Itafu, Soybeans and Beans, tempeh, Kiriboshidaikon(dried radish), Shiitake(mushroom), etc.
Details will be written in another article.
From meat to soy meat
I recommend changing
meat to soy meat.
Meat should be frozen or used within a few days.
However, since soy meat is a dry matter, it can be stored as it is as preserved food.
Since you can buy
100g from the internet, even those who have never used Soy meat can easily buy it.
The easiest to use is the minced type soy meat.
The block type requires soaking in hot water or water, but the minced type allows you to add soy milk to a soup or a boiled dish with water.
Don’t buy cosmetics and products that have been tested on animals
The fact that no animals are tested is called ”Cruerty Free”.
This word is common overseas, but it has not yet spread in Japan.
When purchasing cosmetics, the clerk often doesn’t understand the words, and the manager often asks for confirmation.
But most of the time, you’ll get an answer as soon as you check it, so please ask before you buy a product.
By buying products that have not been tested on animals, you will not be able to vote for animal abuse.
If it’s not just once, and if it continues for the future?
It may be a big effect and may be a material to move the company.
Activities are actually being seen overseas.
Overseas, products that have not been tested on animals are very popular among vegans and animal lovers.
It is customary to confirm it when making a purchase.
I now always check before buying.
The following is the Cruerty Free mark.
This mark is found on overseas products, not on Japanese products.
If you don’t want to be involved in animal testing, consider buying Cruerty Free products.
Plant-based (vegan) products are often not tested on animals.
It is the conscious “non-consumer behavior” that doesn’t buy what you are experimenting with.
It’s easy to be aware of, so please try to incorporate it.
Do not buy fur or leather goods
This action is also a non-consumer action similar to the above.
Just be conscious and it will lead to actions to protect animals.
When you start vegan, I think this kind of non-consumer behavior is the easiest to enter.
There are many alternatives to synthetic leather or faux fur, even if it is not fur or genuine leather.
Just purchasing it is the first step in vegan and animal protection.
How was the introduction to this vegan life?
When we started vegan, I introduced what I could do with a slight change in consciousness.
Is there something like “I can try it?”
A lot of people who read this article are interested in vegan.
Vegan is rapidly increasing and becoming a trend in the world.
Therefore, vegan shops and products are being sold one after another.
I think it’s a good time for those who are thinking of starting a vegan lifestyle now to make it a vegan lifestyle.
The content I introduced this time is what I actually started as a vegan.
If you would like to go a little vegan on this occasion, please start from the above.
