Monitor the internet for vegetarian foods. Purchase or rent vegetarian cookbooks. Mark out ethnic eateries to sample new vegetarian cuisines. The more character you make to your vegetarian diet, the more likely you will be to meet all your nutritional needs. A vegan diet contains only plants (such as vegetables, grains, nuts and fruits) and foods made from plants.Vegans do not eat foods that come from animals, including dairy products and eggs.
How difficult is the idea of a turkey‐free Thanksgiving and morning cereal without the milk? Be mindful that healthy vegan‐ism requires planning, especially if you are a newbie. When you want to cook, there is a recipe somewhere that will suit your taste buds. Still, vegan-ism takes some work and creativity. It is up to you to plan meals around plant protein rather than animal protein. There are seemingly an unlimited number of vegan recipes to choose from. Vegan magazines, books and websites abound, offering suggestions for every meal and cuisine.
Vegan diets are rich in fiber, vitamin C and folate (thanks to all that fruit and veg), but you may be lacking in a number of other vitamins and minerals. Vitamin B12 is a good example. We need it for healthy red blood cells and nerve function, but because it’s typically found in animal foods like eggs, milk and cheese, full-time vegans need to include fortified breakfast cereals and soy products, and possibly consider taking a B12 supplement look for one that supplies 10 micro-grams daily).
