It is no news that well planned vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines and can contain all the nutrients that our body needs. Veganism is suitable for every age and stage of life and can help to reduce the occurrence of diseases like, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type two diabetes and some types of cancers.
These benefits of veganism have made it a popular choice among people who wish to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain good health. However, many establishments and events don’t seem to consider these types of dietary requirements while planning their menu. This has led to individuals not enjoying holidays and events to the fullest.
Our IrieVegans event, is not just an event that will consider healthy eating in the activities and hotel; But it is also filled with activities for everyone to enjoy at the same time. Yes! You heard right, like never before! this event is designed to help its participants experience an unforgettable holiday which includes a healthy lifestyle and allows you to gain more knowledge on your well-being.
Little is known by outsiders about the Rastafarians and their lifestyle. For instance, many believe it to be a religion, in actual fact Rastafarianism is a movement which started in 1935. Majority of the followers of this movement promote a vegan lifestyle which is part of what they believe. They call the vegan lifestyle “Ital” which means “Vegan”. They have a popular phrase, “Ital is Vital” which interprets as veganism is vital for your health.
Rastafarians believe their body is a temple and it should be treated as such, which is why they stick to their Ital diet. They grow their hair naturally and abstain from washing it with anything unnatural. They do not tattoo their skin as they regard the act as soiling the temple. It might interest you to know that Rastas smoke weed in order to gain a higher spiritual awareness and not just a recreational pass time. There is more to Rasta’s than smoking weed and having dreadlocks.
