Vegetarians don't eat meat, fish and poultry, and neither do vegans. But vegans go further, excluding all animal products from their diets – even dairy and eggs. If you're adhering to a vegan diet, that means no more refried beans with lard, margarine made with whey and anything with gelatin, which comes from animal bones and hooves, too. Fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes will be your staples.Precisely how you shape your vegan diet each day is up to you, but you will typically aim for six servings of grains, likely from bread and calcium-fortified cereal; five servings of legumes, nuts and other types of protein, such as peanut butter, chickpeas, tofu, potatoes and soy milk; and four daily servings of veggies, two servings of fruit and two servings of healthy fats such as sesame oil, avocado and coconut, according to an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics guide. There is also no need to give up dessert: Vegans can eat baked goods )cupcakes and cobbler, for example) made without butter or eggs.
As a general rule, aim for a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, chia seeds or two tablespoons of oil each day. Plants are a good source of iron, and you can optimist your absorption of this energizing mineral by combining plant sources with foods rich in vitamin C. For example, combine iron-rich lentils with citrus fruits or peppers. People choose to be vegan for health, environmental, and/or ethical reasons. For example, some vegans feel that one promotes the meat industry by consuming eggs and dairy products. That is, once dairy cows or egg-laying chickens are too old to be productive, they are often sold as meat; and since male calves do not produce milk, they usually are raised for veal or other products. Some people avoid these items because of conditions associated with their production.
In reality, you will likely be batch making one meal and eating it for a few days that week. Choose one of these nutritious dinners and make sure to add sides to it that look to your 5-a-day, calcium, omega-3 fat and vitamin B12 intakes. People with Coeliac disease can use naturally gluten‐free starchy carbohydrates like sweet potatoes to form the base of their meals, and replace products containing gluten with alternatives like gluten-free cereal, bread and vegan burgers.
