At Rescued Friends, education about living a plant-based lifestyle is just as important to us as the care we give to all the animals at the sanctuary.
At Rescued Friends, we provide education on vegan/plant-based nutrition and lifestyle, current research on health and animal welfare, and opportunities to make a difference in the lives of animals.
So, you think you are ready to try to move towards a plant-based vegan lifestyle? Some people can make the switch overnight, but that’s the exception and not the rule. It can be overwhelming and daunting, and I know you are asking things like, “What on earth do I eat?," "How will my family/spouse/friends react?," "But I love cheese.”…and the list goes on. Believe us, we know we’ve been there. The thing that's important to remember is that it’s a process, and you will always be discovering new things, but it's easier than you think. If you are concerned about getting all of your nutrients and have questions about deficiencies, please check out the book Vegan for Life, it literally answers every single nutrition question you could have and gives you solutions!
