There are so many resources out there for traveling vegans; sometimes it’s just a matter of knowing where to look. Whether you are already a vegan looking for tips on remote travel or are pondering the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, the following are sure to help you.
No matter how many case studies come out confirming the health (and environmental) benefits of a vegan diet, doubts still seem to linger. Thankfully, Health Labs has created the first test to determine if your current diet is working in your favor. If you are an omnivore considering a plant-based lifestyle, the tests will analyze if your consumption of meat and dairy products are affecting your health. If you are already a vegan, you can also take this test to see if you lack any nutrients. (Hey, being on the road can often take its toll!)
