Appetizing socks in vegetables
At the beginning of November we celebrate World Vegans Day. Even if you don't want to give up eating meat, it's a great opportunity to remind yourself of the importance of eating vegetables and fruits regularly. They are an excellent source of vitamins and micro and macronutrients. How do you remember to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day? Our proven way is to wear colorful socks with plant motifs. When you're sitting at work and already feel like going to the candy bar vending machine, suddenly your gaze stops on socks with corn on them. Even such an inconspicuous signal can become the beginning of introducing healthy habits. Socks in fruits and vegetables are not only a stylish accessory, but at the same time can become a culinary inspiration. Corn socksevoke a variety of associations. To some they bring to mind crunchy popcorn, while for others they symbolize the taste of a fresh cob fried in butter. Maybe it's time to try corn cream soup with coconut milk or spicy corn pancakes? What's for afternoon tea? Strawberry socks and watermelon socks can inspire you to create an appetizing dessert.
What is veganism?
Veganism is often referred to not only as a diet, but also as an accompanying lifestyle. The name itself is the result of a shortening of the word vegetarian. Veganism has a lot in common with vegetarianism. However, what are the differences between the mentioned approaches? In both cases, one gives up eating meat. Veganism additionally excludes animal products from the diet, such as cheese, milk and eggs. Starting a vegan diet can have various reasons. Sometimes it is related to health issues, but most often the reasons are ethical. In the second case, veganism then mostly concerns not only nutrition, but also a way of life. Vegans give up the use of products that were created with leather, for example, so leather goods, among other things, are dropped. Special attention is also paid to the ethics of the creation of other products, such as cosmetics or candles. These must not be tested on animals. Participation in any activity that may cause animal suffering is also eliminated. Among other things, going to a circus or rodeo is discouraged. Over time, these choices become habit-forming, and it turns out that keeping animals safe doesn't have to involve great sacrifices at all.
