HRH Prince Khaled Bin Alwaleed will open up 10 vegan restaurants throughout the Middle East!
If you’ve never heard of HRH Prince Khaled Bin, he is the son of HRH Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. As the Saudi prince is one of the wealthiest people in the world, his father is a billionaire investor and philanthropist.
Now, the son, HRH Prince Khaled Bin, is also making news as he is on the cutting edge of people promoting the benefits of a plant-based diet. He first made a dietary change in his life when he was diagnosed with high cholesterol. As a result, he began to invest in clean energy and vegan companies. Some of his plans included investing in Breakthrough Energy Ventures and chef Matthew Kenney’s vegan restaurants.
The prince believes that a diet consisting of meat, fast food, and junk food can have disastrous side effects. He said, “We have to boycott fast food restaurants and focus on our health and our children’s health before this disaster increases.”
This month, the prince announced plans to create ten vegan restaurants in the Middle East. He said, “By 2020 we are aiming to have a minimum of 10 restaurants/cafes. Our region occupies parts of the top ten most obese counties in the world. This is crazy and frankly a joke we have reached this level. I’m not saying opening 10 restaurants will solve this issue, but you better believe it’s a step in the right direction.”
Research has shown that eating a diet high in animal products is linked to colon cancer, diabetes, strokes, heart attacks, and high blood pressure. Products such as milk, cream, bacon, beef, cheese, and butter have shown to contribute to obesity, cancer, diabetes, and other ailments.
In contrast, studies have also shown that people who adapted a plant-based diet have lower incidents of heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and non-insulin dependent diabetes.
HRH Prince Khaled Bin Alwaleed is a true visionary for seeing the need to create vegan restaurants throughout the Middle East! We cannot wait to visit them ourselves.
