Before going vegan, there were certain health benefits I already expected such as weight loss, increased energy and a healthier heart. What a pleasant surprise it was to discover that I was also getting a better quality sleep at night! I researched this secret benefit as soon as it came to my attention.

Okay, so I may have just dreamed up the word ‘veganize’ since my auto-correct is desperately trying to change it…but I’m sticking with it.
