These days, more and more people refuse animal food, explaining this as both health benefits and caring for the planet. An increase in the number of cattle generates almost as much methane emissions as industrial plants.
However, in big cities, it is not easy for vegetarians and those who want to join the healthy diet to find fully vegetarian cafes and especially restaurants. In cities, such people often remain hungry, because there is nothing but fast food establishments with hamburgers and restaurants with meat dishes within walking distance.
To be sure that the food you eat is truly animal-free, it’s best to cook it yourself.
In addition, homemade meals can help you better control calories and not gain weight.
