It can sometimes take a while before you figure you what to eat and what substitutes to use for certain ingredients that are based on animal products. It seems overwhelming, perhaps. Where to start? What to buy? Do I need any “weird” foods? Isn’t it great that nowadays a vegan transition is becoming more achievable? With so much information available, e-books, cookbooks, free courses, documentaries, videos, vlogs, blogs, online recipes, vegan products, etc, it has never been easier than today.
There are many reasons for going vegan, but whichever reason you choose, there is no doubt that a plant-based diet will greatly benefit your health (and the animals too). There’s also no need to worry; you can obtain all your essential nutrients.
Have you ever heard of Nutriciously?
Nutriciously is dedicated to helping you with those concerns. Their packages take away the feeling of being overwhelmed, because everything is done for you; the research, the information, the food groups, nutrients, vegan myths debunked, benefits, tips, meal planning, and more. I wish I had known about them when I became vegan.
Is It Affordable?
First of all, this course is free.
Second, it will teach you to fill your kitchen with affordable staple foods.
Third, when you feel your health improve, doctor’s visits will decrease, i.e you end up saving money on doctor’s visits and medication. I have always had strong health, also before I was vegan, but when I switched to a plant-based diet, I still noticed a boost in my health. I don’t go to the doctor. I had to go a few months ago, because of pain in my knee, but that has nothing to do with my diet 😉
Can I Go At My Own Pace?
Of course! It is important that you go at your own pace. Who wants to run a marathon when you can enjoy a steady stroll? We’re all different. Some of us can just make a drastic change and never look back; others need more time. If someone is telling you off for not doing it the way they did, don’t listen to them. Go at your own pace, connect with a positive community that can help you along the way, and enjoy the positive changes you will feel in your body.
What Foods Will a Plant-Based Diet Include?
Nutriciously explains that there are four food categories in a vegan diet:
- Grains and starches
What’s the difference between vegetables and legumes? Veggies are the following: kale, lettuce, collard greens, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, asparagus, you get the idea 😉
Legumes are beans, chickpeas, lentils, peas, edamame, …
Grains and starches include potatoes, rice, oats, cous cous, squash, corn, quinoa, pasta, bread, wraps, tortillas, etc
Their website also features many delicious meals, such as vegan chicken wings, 46 healthy vegan Easter recipes, mini vegan lemon tarts, and so much more yummy and healthy stuff.
In times like these it is important that we eat healthy. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a vegan meal a day (or three 😉 ) may keep much more away 🙂
