November is World Vegan Month. It was established in 1994 by Louise Wallis, Chair of the Vegan Society to commemorate the forward movement of the ideology & the 50th anniversary of the world’s foremost society dedicated to a vegan lifestyle.
More and more people are turning vegan as they are learning about the damage it is causing to health, environment and animal welfare. We can see this growing interest in veganism all around us.
The idea of everyone adopting a vegan diet might sound extreme, but in the last decade, the number of people following a plant-based diet has rapidly risen. These diets tend to be rich in nutrients and low in saturated fats. A vegan diet can improve heart health, protect against cancer, and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes .
Everyone has the power to make our planet a better place simply by transforming the way they eat. Eating nutritious whole plant foods is beneficial not just for health & wellness reasons, but also because it points to a sustainable diet. Adopting a balanced lifestyle is essential because it has immediate and long-term effects on our health and well-being.
At F Zeen Retreat we believe in the importance of leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle. We make no exceptions with our food, using only fresh and the highest quality ingredients mainly from our garden and from local producers of Cephalonia to create outstanding dishes that provide as much nourishment as possible. Our two restaurants and bars, ‘Gaia’ and ‘Selini’ offer a variety of dishes from the ‘Sea’ and the ‘Land’, suitable for vegan and vegetarian diet.
