Breakfast is key to starting the day in a balanced way, so whatever you do, do not be a breakfast skipper as missing your first meal of the day sets you off on a blood sugar roller-coaster, which means you will end up choosing the wrong foods later in the day. Remember, breakfast makes an important contribution towards your daily intake and it plays a key role in maintaining a healthy weight. Eating well in the morning is vital for balancing energy levels. The ideal is to eat little and often, but you need to make every snack work for you. That means choosing snacks that satisfy energy needs, plus supply extra benefits like topping up your five-a-day or upping your intake of other key nutrients.
Well‐rounded vegan diets are healthy, nutritious, and associated with a number of health benefits, including improved heart health, blood sugar, and body mass. Following a vegan meal plan can help you incorporate many nutrient-rich, whole foods into your diet to provide your body with the nutrients it needs. Keep in mind that supplements and proper planning are essential to avoid deficiencies in several critical nutrients.

Note that many processed vegan products found at the store ‐ such as vegan meat substitutes — are often loaded with sodium, fillers, additives, and other ingredients that may harm your health. Try to stick to mostly whole, unprocessed foods — and steer clear of mock meats and other highly processed vegan ingredients and premade meals. A balanced vegan diet should include a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, and healthy fats.
Be ready for some push-back. Some people might not know why you’re going vegan or issue whether you'll stick with it. Identify that you're doing this for yourself — nobody else.
