With more people becoming interested in veganism, it’s no surprise that this sustainable lifestyle choice is becoming increasingly popular among young people. A recent study has found that Gen Z is the most vegan-friendly generation yet, with more than half of all respondents saying they would be willing to try a vegan diet.

Generation Z are people born between 1997 and 2012. They are currently about 16-25-year-olds. Millennials are following this type of diet and lifestyle. Even some surveys show that Millenials are more likely to immediately take action compared to Generation Z.

Veganism is becoming increasingly popular as people seek healthy and sustainable sources of nutrition. As mentioned in our previous article, upcoming generations, like Gen Z, are more likely to become vegan. Because of that, we will dedicate this post to vegan superfoods that will boost your immunity.

For vegans, there are many different superfoods to choose from that can provide essential nutrients for a balanced diet and clean eating. The most popular vegan superfoods include quinoa, legumes, chia seeds, nuts, and dark leafy greens. These foods are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making them an ideal choice for an immunity boost. This food is affordable, easy to find, and can be prepared in many delicious ways. If you want to make sure you are eating completely natural and clean food, you can shop for veggies locally from trusted farmers. Shopping for veggies in supermarkets might have some shady origins or might not be completely fresh.

We were born and raised with many different prejudices and beliefs, that we incorporated from our surroundings. It was mainly by our parents, relatives, friends, etc. But a significant part was coming from some old and questionable medical findings and of course – the media. One of them is the Red Meat Myth.

The same is with other foods. Milk was always promoted as healthy, good for children’s development, useful for the bones, and full of important vitamins needed for our body, but in recent years, we can see how new studies and practices are destroying that theory. People nowadays are showing lactose intolerance and different allergic skin reactions when consuming milk. Even acne was related to higher consumption of dairy products, which we explained in our previous blog post.

The same is happening with other minerals and vitamins, especially when it comes to Iron, Vitamin B12, and protein in the vegan diet. In this article, we will focus on Iron in plant-based food.
