The 3 most common preconceptions about a vegan diet

  1. Where do you get your protein?

    Protein is of course also found in plant-based foods, so that the requirement can be easily met with a varied vegan diet: Good sources of vegetable protein are, for example, pulses, nuts and wholemeal products.

  2. Vegan is expensive!

    On the contrary: the "basics" of a plant-based diet such as potatoes, rice, pasta, pulses, fruit and vegetables are even among the cheapest foods of all. If you wield the wooden spoon yourself and do without superfluous extras such as so-called "superfoods" and vegan convenience products, you can eat a healthy and balanced vegan diet even on a small budget.

  3. But eating meet is natural, isn´t it?

    This is a so-called naturalistic fallacy, because the "naturalness" of a thing says nothing about whether it is good or bad. In this sense, one could also argue that vaccinations, clothing, houses, appendectomies and electric light are bad because they are "unnatural" - which certainly only very few people would subscribe to.
