Overall it's probably better for the environment & your health if you primarily focus on organic & local, rather than vegan. So many vegan options are available nowadays but they're so processed, packaged, & transported that a lot of the benefits for the earth are counteracted.
I was vegan for like 5 years, after a couple years of vegetarian. If you do your research it's possible to get all the nutrition you need, but depending on why you want to go vegan, the cost & hassle of substitution is sometimes impractical.
If you go vegan & mostly stick to local organic whole fruits & veggies and nuts & grains, and avoid living on novelty substitution products like vegan bacon "fakin' bacon" (some indulging is necessary though) you can probably notice a lot of changes in your body & mind/mood, and avoid going broke (hopefully)
Don't be afraid to cheat just a little. Especially on a couple of not-necessarily-vegan supplements.
Hello Jodie. What are you wanting to know as far as vegan?
I'm a plant-based Pt that does transitioning coaching and fitness packages if you're interested.
I'm not so sure it's always better for the environment. And it also doesn't have to be more healthy for you Haha. Nutrition is bad for generalisations, the details always matter. But yes it can be both neither aswell.
