Eating out is possible as a vegan, but options may be limited. Garden vegetable soup and steamed veggies make good appetizers. En-tree salads are your best bet, but do not forget to hold the bacon bits, croûtons and cheese. For dessert, go with fresh fruit. Only certain types of alcohol are vegan-friendly.There are no time-savers with the vegan diet, unless you hire somebody to plan, shop for and prepare your meals.If you have built a healthful vegan diet around fiber-packed veggies, fruits and whole grains, you should not feel hungry between meals.
Although a well‐rounded vegan diet can be healthy and nutritious, a vegan diet that is not properly planned can harm your health. Here are a few factors that you may want to consider when starting a vegan diet. Vegan diets may be associated with an increased risk of several nutritional deficiencies.This is because meat, fish, and poultry are rich in several important nutrients that are mostly lacking in plant-based foods, including protein, iron, zinc, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids.
For this meal plan compiled by our registered dietitian, we’ve included lots of meals you should be able to buy ready-made in supermarkets and health food stores. Please check out the further reading at the bottom of this meal plan to find out more about buying and making vegan food and, if you had like to read our second weekly meal plan, be sure to take our Vegan Pledge.When planning your meals, include green leafy veg (kale, spinach, spring greens, watercress, rocket, Pak Choi) in them each day. Choose plant milk, cereal, spread and soy yogurt that are fortified with vitamin B12, calcium and, where possible, vitamin D (making sure the latter is not animal-based).
You don't. You only wish it.
