AFTER the over-indulgence of Christmas, I’m sure many people will be considering turning over a new leaf this January and making a New Year’s resolution to be healthier.

Might I suggest that those people consider going vegan?

The health benefits of a plant-based diet include a lower risk of cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, stroke and certain types of cancer.

Plus vegans tend to be slimmer, so it could be a great way to lose weight.

Not only that, but by going vegan you ensure that no farmed animals need suffer for the sake of your food.

So, why not have a kinder, healthier 2015 and go vegan?
