Going Vegan In 2020
Ok, you have decided to go vegan in 2020. I want to congratulate you on making the best decision for your health, all animals and the earth. In this news letter I will teach you how to transition into veganism simple and easy.
What can I eat as a vegan
Knowing what you can and cannot eat is very important for vegans. Trust me, I get it. It can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming in the beginning. In the beginning you have no clue or idea what’s vegan and what’s not vegan. Sometimes you may not be sure what a vegan diet consist of. The vegan diet is one of the simplest diet to follow. There is an array of foods you can eat like vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and products made from these foods.
Let’s start with grains
Choose Whole Grains
Let’s start by choosing to eat whole grains, which means you will be swapping out white bread and pasta, for whole grains, like brown rice, and quinoa. Keep in mind nutrients are stripped out of your food when grains are refined. Just remember extra fiber will keep you full longer and may help you lose weight.
Eat An Assortment of Foods
Eating an assortment of foods will help you to get the nutrients you need. It’s essential to eat a balance diet to prevent fatigue. Green leafy vegetables are perfect for vitamins A, C & K. Remember you will get fiber and proteins from legumes. To get all your nutrients choose colors of the rainbow when eating. These includes blueberries, pomegranate, sweet oranges, squash and sweet potatoes. If you are looking for a simple meal try a Mediterranean Quinoa salad.
