Vegan or not?

Nuts and other protein sources for a healthy lifestyle.

The main difference between vegan and vegetarian is that vegans avoid all animal products and by-products, while vegetarians only avoid animal flesh. This means that vegans do not consume meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, or any other ingredients derived from animals. Vegetarians, on the other hand, may consume some of these products, depending on the type of vegetarianism they follow. For example, lacto-ovo vegetarians eat dairy and eggs, but not meat, poultry, or fish. Vegans also tend to avoid using any products that involve animal exploitation or cruelty, such as leather, wool, silk, or cosmetics tested on animals. Vegetarians may or may not share these ethical views. Both veganism and vegetarianism can have health benefits, such as lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. However, vegans need to be more careful about getting enough protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B12, and other nutrients that are more abundant in animal products. Vegetarians can get these nutrients from eggs and dairy, or from fortified foods and supplements. Both diets also have environmental benefits, as they reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and land use associated with animal agriculture. However, veganism may have a lower environmental impact than vegetarianism, as dairy and eggs still require a lot of resources to produce.

Some of the best vegan protein sources are soy products, legumes, nuts, seeds, and grains. These foods provide not only protein but also other nutrients, such as iron, calcium, fiber, and antioxidants. Here are some examples of how much protein you can get from these plant foods per serving¹²³:

  • Soy products: tofu (10 g per 100 g), tempeh (19 g per 100 g), edamame (11 g per 100 g), soy milk (6 g per cup)
  • Legumes: beans (7–8 g per 1/2 cup), lentils (8 g per 1/2 cup), peas (8 g per 1/2 cup), chickpeas (7.5 g per 1/2 cup), hummus (4 g per 1/4 cup)
  • Nuts: almonds (6 g per 1 oz), walnuts (4.5 g per 1 oz), cashews (4.5 g per 1 oz), pistachios (6 g per 1 oz), nut butters (6–8 g per 2 tbsp)

You can also use vegan protein powders, bars, and supplements to boost your protein intake if needed.

Copilot BING AI Review of the Film:

Anatomy of a Fall is a French courtroom thriller that won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2023. It tells the story of Sandra Voyter, a German novelist who is accused of murdering her husband, Samuel, who fell from their chalet window. The film explores the complexities of their marriage, which involved three languages: English, French, and German. Sandra preferred to speak in English, while Samuel wanted to live in France and learn French. The film also examines the role of language in the legal system, as Sandra’s trial is conducted in French, with the help of an interpreter. The film is a gripping and intricate puzzle, with a superb performance by Sandra Hüller as the enigmatic Sandra, who keeps the audience guessing about her guilt or innocence. The film also raises questions about society’s attitudes towards women who are ambitious, independent, and bisexual, as Sandra faces prejudice and scrutiny from the prosecution and the media. The film is directed by Justine Triet, who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur Harari. It is based on a novel by Sandra Voyter, who is a fictional character inspired by several real-life female writers. The film has received critical acclaim and has been nominated for several awards, including Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards123.

Some possible ways to continue the conversation are:

  • If you are interested in watching the film, you can find it on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video.
  • What do you think of Sandra’s character? Do you sympathize with her or suspect her?
  • Have you read any of Sandra Voyter’s novels? If so, which one is your favorite and why?
  • How do you feel about the use of three languages in the film? Do you think it adds to the realism or the confusion?
