What types of meals should you eat on a Vegan Diet?


Going vegan means dropping all animal products – meat, fish, even dairy. It's up to you to shape a nutritionally sound diet supported fruits, veggies, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes.

Each day, you'll aim for 6 servings of grains; five servings of legumes, nuts and other sorts of protein, like tofu; four servings of veggies; two servings of fruit; and two servings of healthy fats. With some creativity and work, you'll find ways to continue eating your favorites. Try vegan cupcakes made without butter, eggs, and albumin, for instance. Though restaurant meals are possible, dining out may be a challenge, so steel oneself against many time within the kitchen.
