Being overweight or feeling unhappy with your body is a problem many of us face. Losing weight and feeling healthy does not happen overnight. It requires dedication and hard work. Although working out can definitely give you results, living a vegan or a vegetarian lifestyle can be effective options for many people.

The terms “vegan” and “vegetarian” are different, but have certain similarities. A vegan lifestyle consists of eating no dairy. The reason people live a vegan lifestyle may vary, but some include wanting to be fairer to animals, or because they might be lactose intolerant. Being vegan does not mean you are limited to eating fruits and vegetables; there are many vegan substitutes such as vegan cheese and vegan milk. On the other hand, being vegetarian consists of being able to consume dairy, but not meat. The similarity between the two is that both consist of cutting out meat. The biggest difference is that one involves cutting out dairy and meat while the other only consists of cutting out meat. It is obvious that living a vegan lifestyle is more difficult than living a vegetarian lifestyle. In the Trenton community, the restaurant, Health Is Wealth, makes it easier for people to live a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle that is actually enjoyable.

Health Is Wealth is located at 242 E. State Street in Trenton. It provides a menu that is friendly for either lifestyle, but the establishment specialize in making vegan items. The restaurant aims to give you a pleasant experience by finding a substitute for almost every item that includes dairy or meat. It is a small restaurant that does not have a formal website; however, it’s easy to find being just steps away from Trenton City Hall.

The restaurant recognizes that it is not easy to suddenly transform your way of eating. That is why they aim to give you vegan/vegetarian meal options as well as dessert options.
