It's official guys : 2019 will be The Year Of Veganism (hallelujah!)
In Britain alone , 542,000 plant-eater are now following a vegan diet and never consume any animal products including meat, fish, milk, cheese, eggs and honey. This is a whopping increase since the last estimate of 150,000 ten years ago.
This millennial induced trend pushed people to avoid animal-derived ingredients, which are cruelly produced & unhealthy for both our furry buddies & ourselves.
Nutritionist and former skincare formulator Star Khechara has opened the Academy of Beauty Nutrition, in a bid to teach people how to prevent and reverse the anti-aging process through a vegan diet.
Beauty from within
After 20 years of experience in both nutrition and skincare, Khechara, who is vegan herself, discovered that what vegans eat have the biggest impact on the appearance of the skin.
In September 2017 , Khechara told Plant Based News that it made 'logical sense to [her] that the biggest impact on skin-health would be diet, rather than topical products'.
"I'd been studying nutrition and creating skincare for over 20 years, and I knew that skincare products only penetrated the very outer layers of the skin (if they go deeper they're classified as drugs rather than cosmetics)," she explained.
"I also knew that every skin cells are built, repaired, and maintained by the materials supplied in the diet. The more raw the better ."

And according to a leading restaurant agency, seaweed is “set to explode thanks to its sustainability angle and umami appeal.”
Nutritional yeast, affectionately called “nooch” by those in the know, is a magical substance that’s going “mainstream.” High in protein, these golden flakes impart a cheesy, savory flavor in all manner of dishes—mac ‘n’ “cheese,” potatoes, pasta, pesto, and even popcorn.
Exotic fruits in general are going to be big in 2016, but king among them is the jackfruit. This highly versatile fruit has the texture of pulled pork or carnitas and is a go-to vegan-meat option. When shopping, be sure to skip the sugar overload by buying jackfruit brined in water—not syrup.
Also know as bean juice, this is the same liquid inside a can of beans that most people pour down the drain. But did you know it’s an excellent resource for whipping up a “merengue,” baking some French macarons, and even making ice cream?
