But in this article, we want to show you 10 things you probably never imagined you would get from going plant based.

By the way, for those of you shaking your heads saying “No way am I giving up bacon!” we want to assure you that you don’t have to. We are simply saying that by cutting back on your bacon (and steaks, hamburgers, etc.) to maybe just once a week, you will be lengthening your life and having a healthier life as a result of it.

Still not convinced? Keep reading and find out 10 almost unbelievable health benefits you will get from adding more green on your plate.


1.  Super Skin

When you cut back on meat you are also cutting back on saturated fat, which is well-known for clogging your pores. In addition, vegetables and fruits contain many vitamins, minerals, pigments, and phytochemicals that are necessary for healthy skin. Tomatoes, for example, contain a compound called lycopene, which has been shown in studies to naturally protect your skin from the damage caused by the sun’s UV rays.

The vitamin C in sweet potatoes can stimulate your body’s production of collagen, which will make your face smooth and firm. Many people, who go plant based, or completely vegan, say that besides feeling lighter and having more energy, the first real difference they notice in their bodies is the improvement of their complexion.
