Bland tofu and overcooked limp vegetables are not the reality of a vegan or plant-based diet anymore. There's so much more delicious variety to choose from now! Trying a plant-based diet can actually introduce you to new foods that you might've never tried before.
A vegan lifestyle strictly removes all animal products like red meat and dairy products from your diet, whereas eating plant-based does not mean you can't eat meat it just means you favor more plant-based foods. It means your meals are mostly plants: vegetables, whole grains, and fruits along with beans, seeds, and nuts. (And honey!; a non-vegan plant-based favorite.)
The plant-based diet has become very popular lately with many people wanting to find new ways to become more eco-friendly, aside from recycling and reducing their use of plastic. Eating less meat is one of the most impactful things you can do as an individual.

The positive environmental impact isn't the only reason people are switching, there are also many health benefits from eating plant-based meals. Plants have essential nutrients that you cannot get from other foods. The vitamins and minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants in plants help keep your cells healthy and your body in balance. This helps to boost your immune system, neutralizes toxins from pollution, bacteria, viruses, and reduces inflammation throughout the body and can remove free radicals in the body.
Plants contain a lot of fiber, which is so important to have in your diet, particularly to maintain a healthy gut. Fiber ensures you are better able to absorb the nutrients from food, it can lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar, and it's great for good bowel management. As plant-based diets focused on whole foods that are unprocessed it helps maintain a healthy weight.
There are so many reasons to try a plant-based diet but still, people stumble and find it hard to fully commit. Like every lifestyle change, it can seem daunting and complicated. You need to research new foods and then recipes on how to cook them properly and you have to make sure you are still getting a balanced meal. For plant-based newbies and for people who have got into a rut with their plant-based eating it can seem like too much effort.

The best anime games are the ones that look the coolest and make you feel the most powerful.
Every anime fan who also loves video games (so...pretty much all of us) knows the feeling of watching an epic battle go down and thinking, "Damn, it would be so cool to play that."
Dragon Ball FighterZ<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ1Mzg0Ny9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYzNTMzMzE3MX0.wx53Jou8Dy9a6G5cO-rDf0D6Ubb2d_E1BpfRr9mFAvo/img.png?width=980" id="d41a9" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="81d8ad4986fea72f094da80e12c4453b" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Dragon Ball FighterZ" />
Shueisha<p><em>Dragon Ball FighterZ </em>is the one major exception to the "anime games are not technically great video games" rule. Regardless of whether or not someone likes the <em>Dragon Ball Z </em>franchise, <em>Dragon Ball FighterZ </em>is undoubtedly the single-best 2D fighter on the current gaming scene.<br></p><p>Developer Arc System Works, which is also behind the popular 2D fighting franchises <em>Guilty Gear </em>and <em>BlazBlue</em>, went all out on <em>FighterZ. </em>The combat system is deeply complex, designed to facilitate hyper-fast-paced battles where life bars can be tanked by a single string of well-executed combos. The 37 (soon to be 40 with DLC) character roster is incredibly diverse, with every character's play style feeling both distinct and true to their personality. For example, Broly plays like a gigantic powerhouse with the ability to attack through opponents' projectiles, while Hit—the alien assassin from <em>Dragon Ball Super</em>—relies on speed, parries, and technical acumen. </p><p><em>FighterZ </em>is proof that in the hands of an expert developer, anime games can, indeed, be great games period.<br></p>
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ1Mzg1Mi9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyNTk2MTE4M30.Auh2onGuK-jDbi2rsLFRAwVrI-r5yHIjxOHgbP1qELc/img.jpg?width=980" id="999bc" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="39fd07804a199d3cf0cd26d1abf8aa3a" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3" />
Shueisha<p>Not every anime game can be <em>Dragon Ball Fighterz</em>, and that's perfectly okay. Sometimes it's nice to relax and play a more casual fighting game where you can just screw around as your favorite character. In more casual games like these, the bigger the roster, the better.</p><p>When it comes to character roster size, <em>Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 </em>(or <em>Dragon Ball Z: Sparkling! Meteor</em>) is wholly unmatched. <em>Tenkaichi 3 </em>features 98 characters and 161 different forms, making it one of the largest playable rosters in any fighting game ever. Finally, we can play not just as heavy hitters like Goku and Vegeta, but also as <a href="https://dragonball.fandom.com/wiki/Spopovich" target="_blank">Spopovich</a>, the muscular bald man in a unitard who was in like three episodes from the Buu Saga before being killed. </p><p>On a cooler note, you can also play as Arale, the main character from <em>Dragon Ball </em>creator Akira Toriyama's earlier work, <em>Dr. Slump</em>, and that kind of crossover reference is exactly why <em>Tenkaichi 3 </em>is such a great anime game.</p>
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ1Mzg4OS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYxNjA0MjY3MX0.BxmH7sZoe6oj9ApxqkvEeaNUrgGlnMWU3bkZsVdhDAk/img.jpg?width=980" id="e810b" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="3a82a85aefbae20daba598640eb55c1f" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4" />
Shueisha<p>The <em>Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm </em>franchise is probably the best casual anime fighting game series, due to its smooth gameplay mechanics that allow you to run around 3D playing fields just like a real ninja. More importantly, though, the games feature giant boss battles against the various Tailed Beasts that are epic in scale. </p><p><em>Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 </em>is the culmination of all the previous titles, including a huge list of characters from throughout all of the anime's incarnations, including <em>Naruto</em>, <em>Naruto Shippuden</em>, and <em>Boruto</em>. The game serves as a great capstone for <em>Naruto</em> and perhaps more than any other game really makes you feel like you're playing the anime.<br></p>
One Piece Pirate Warriors 3<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ1MzkyOC9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY1NjA5MzU4NH0.jS9rRj0b_mJtvpC2LeWqGOZ-IIs1Z-rAVOzAGYOH1rI/img.jpg?width=980" id="e96b3" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="65428cdd1d44c45b587212c4658114d8" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="One Piece Pirate Warriors 3" />
Shueisha<p>Developed by Koei Tecmo's Omega Force division, <em>One Piece Pirate Warriors </em>falls under the action game sub-genre known as <em>Musou </em>(literally "Unrivaled"), alongside other entries like <em>Dynasty Warriors </em>(inspired by China's Three Kingdoms period) and <em>Samurai Warriors </em>(inspired by Japan's Sengoku period). These games are designed to create an epic sense of scale, placing you in the role of an incredibly powerful warrior and pitting you against 1000s of foes at once. As you mow through mobs of enemies and demolish (slightly more) powerful enemy leaders, you truly feel like an all-powerful hero.<br></p><p><em>One Piece</em>'s giant world and ridiculous characters work incredibly well within this context. Notably, <em>One Piece Pirate Warriors 4</em> released relatively recently, but <em>One Piece Pirate Warriors 3</em> still boasts more alternate costumes, story chapters, in-game collectibles, and post-game content. If you want the ultimate <em>Pirate Warriors </em>experience, <em>3 </em>is still definitely the way to go.<br></p>
Jump Ultimate Stars<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMzQ1Mzk1Mi9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0MTE2NzI3M30.HQDN7GRWDFng51_eiMKSxOPgNrO__r-bCiRartnQcEc/img.jpg?width=980" id="bc503" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="5ca683d89a61fa0613c9413ef45a967a" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Jump Ultimate Stars" />
Shueisha<p>In Japan, the vast majority of popular action manga are published in <em>Weekly Shonen Jump</em>. This means that <em>Shonen Jump</em>'s publisher, Shueisha, owns the rights to a vast array of franchises from <em>Dragon Ball </em>to <em>One Piece </em>to <em>JoJo's Bizarre Adventure</em>, and many, many more. As such, they would be <em>insane</em> not to make a massive video game collaboration.</p><p>Enter the <em>Jump Stars </em>series, which does exactly that. <em>J-Stars Victory VS </em>and <em>Jump Force</em>, the two most recent entries for home consoles, ended up being disappointing due to a weak combat systems, even by anime video game standards. </p><p>Luckily, <em>Jump Ultimate Stars, </em>released in 2006 for Nintendo DS, still holds up. The game plays kind of like a low-res anime version of <em>Super Smash Bros.</em>, and the character roster is sizable while maintaining the distinct feel of each character and series. <em>Ultimate Stars </em>is only available in Japanese, but it works perfectly on American DS systems, and everything is intuitive enough to figure out with relatively little hassle. If you're an anime fan and want the best collab game ever made, track this one down. </p>
