Considering a full plant-based diet
Tuesday, July 28, 2015
Our society is becoming more and more aware of all the chemicals that are added to our food and how much it's processed , even the food items that says they're healthy.
Many documentaries are available like they do tate many documentaries are available like " forks over knives ", "earthlings ", etc. these documentaries way the pros of eating a plant-based diet , some emphasizing on our carbon footprint and animal cruelty and others focusing more on the health benefits . Either way , i'm growing positive it's a good choice to eat plant-based for my own health . Many studies show the benefits of doing so.
I remember younger hearing about people not eating any animal products and I thought : " How in the world do you live on that kind of diet, what CAN you even eat!? "
Of course , you don't want to exchange your burger for highly processed veggie patty. That's not the healthy path . Instead you want to add as many veggies as possible and whole grains . Great cookbooks are out there like " oh she glows " and " deliciously Ella ". Vegan buttersquash rissoto, sweet potato brownies , beet cake , ... You name it ! Also, if you're eating fully vegan , you'll want to have a supplement of B 12 . The point is , educate yourself, don't go in blindfolded. That's what I'm slowly doing and I am trying to transition into this lifestyle .
I eaten mostly vegetarian , had to meet once here once there but that's it . I find many other protein sources in plant-based food.
Any of you have great tips are questions we can look op for the answer ?
