What Are You Giving up for Lent This Year?
Still haven’t decided what you should give up for Lent this year? Check out our suggestions!
During Lent, many people choose to fast or give up animal products—like meat and dairy products—as a form of penitence or to be forgiven for their sins. Lent is great time for people who want to eat healthier and make a positive and rewarding change in their life.
Animals never get a break from abuse and exploitation, but you can help them by going vegan during Lent. Animals on factory farms are crammed together in warehouses or on dry lots full of their excrement and other sick and dying animals. When the animals arrive at the slaughterhouse, workers pay little attention to their weak bodies, and many animals are still conscious when they are hacked apart.
Not only is going vegan the best way to help farmed animals, but you’ll also reduce your risk of obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, and cancer by removing meat, dairy products, and eggs from your diet.
And don’t forget to ask your fam to join you in going vegan for Lent!
