Vegans unable to meet their recommended nutrient intakes through foods or fortified products alone should consider taking supplements. You can eat a variety of tasty plant-based meals on a vegan diet. Dining out as a vegan can be challenging.One way to reduce stress is to identify vegan-friendly restaurants ahead of time by using websites such as Happycow or Vegguide. Applications like VeganXpress and Vegman may also be helpful. When dining in a non-vegan establishment, try scanning the menu online beforehand to see what vegan options they may have for you.
Each week double the number of meatless snacks you already enjoy, such as spaghetti with tomato sauce or vegetable stir-fry. Discover plans to include greens, such as spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and collards, in your daily meals. Take popular recipes and examine them without meat. For instance, cook vegetarian chili by leaving out the ground beef and adding an extra can of black beans. Or make fajitas applying extra‐firm tofu rather than chicken. You may be shocked to find that many dishes need only simple substitutions.
Add flavor with yeast extract, which is not only a tasty addition but a useful source of vitamin B12. Fill half your plate with a colorful variety of veggies (especially leafy greens because they supply small amounts of the mineral iodine) and drizzle with a dressing made from flaxseed, rapeseed, walnut or hemp oil. Your body can use these healthy fats overnight, along with protein for regeneration and repair, important for maintaining healthy skin and hair.
