The new trend of 2018 among celebrities has them being vegan, or at least trying out a vegan diet. As annoying as some diet trends can be, this trend is actually one of the least annoying. When it comes to our health, the environment and to animal rights, adopting a vegan diet seems like the best option all round.
Going vegan may seem like a pretty drastic change given that you’re cutting out all meat, dairy, and eggs, but with the ever expanding availability of vegan products coming onto the market it’s easier than you might think, and with the increased interest and involvement of celebrities there is a change beginning to happen in the world of us “everyday” people too.
