About Just Vegan: Affordability, Convenience, Health, Saving lives & ecosystems.
How Just Vegan began: Upon request Just Vegan quickly realised there is a demand for well balanced home cooked vegan meals that are delivered fresh, and for personalised cooking courses that show with comfort the ease of healthy cooking! Just Vegan was born 2017 December 11th upon formal sincere request at a charity function! Just Vegans first guest at chefs dinner table led to many curious enthusiasts & before Just Vegan could blink an eye, The Little Red Vehicle was delivering successfully all over Joburg!
Just Vegan to assist further: Cooking classes launched 2018 Jan 6th growing from strength to strength today, rolling out four classes per week! First three items entering retail 2018 December 11 by agreement!

The Why: Short concise articles attract & hold attention, & so Just Vegan explains briefly about benefits of being vegan, it’s healthy & you’re welcome to google the rest:
Saving sentient lives:
Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans. These shocking figures do not even include fish and other sea creatures whose deaths are so great they are only measured in tonnes.
Ethics of killing, where the moral status of the individual killed is uncertain. Drawing on philosophical notions of personal identity and the immorality of killing, there are a host of practical issues, including abortion, infanticide, the killing of animals, assisted suicide, and euthanasia.
Decrease water footprint
Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Cause less deforestation
Less land use
Keep water on land
Encourage nutrient-rich soil
Less air pollution
Less water pollution
Healthy aquatic eco-systems
New analysis shows sustainability of ‘livestock’ as crude, as they consume much more protein, water and calories than they produce. ‘Meat’ and ‘dairy’ industries use up 83% of farmland, produce 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions, contribute 57% of water & 56% of air pollution, and produce only 18% of food calories and 37% of protein.
800 million people do not have enough food. Food (and land) security is of major issues. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimates that one in nine people are chronically undernourished. With the world’s growing population expected to increase from 7 to 11 billion by 2050, not enough land is available to feed populations to animal based diet.
Consuming colourful combo fruit and veg whole plants based vegan meals with balance from food groups inclusive of nuts, seeds, legumes, beans, grains, edible herbs, flowers and roots, is healthy way forward for individuals who ensure they are meeting all of macro-nutrient and micro-nutrient needs. That, together with adequate exercise, sunshine D, additional B12 & vegan D, sleep, meditation & laughter will stand in good stead for improved health.
