Vegan Foods

Vegans avoid all animal-derived produce. Not only does this eliminate meat and fish, it also removes eggs, honey and dairy products from your diet. Therefore, it is highly important that vegans know the right things to eat that are still on the vegan foods menu to ensure that they are getting all of the natural goodness found in animal protein.

Vegan diets are rich in vitamins and nutrients and naturally high in fibre thanks to the vast amount of fruits and vegetables consumed. It is considered to be an extremely healthy lifestyle providing vegan junk food is limited to a treat as part of a balanced lifestyle. There are however, some vitamins and minerals that vegans can tend to lack in. B12 is a prime example of a vitamin that is present in animal products but not in most vegan foods - Nutritional yeast is a fantastic source of this vitamin and great sprinkled on an array of meals for extra value and nutrition.

Plants are a great source of iron and provides you with an abundance of energy that will last throughout the day and leave you feeling vibrant.

Whether you’re new to the vegan lifestyle or looking for some store cupboard inspiration, it is important to know which vegan foods are available for those embarking on a vegan lifestyle.

Types of Vegan Foods

The key to a vegan diet

The key to a healthy, balanced vegan diet is to ensure that you are consuming enough of the daily nutrients recommended for daily consumption. This means ensuring that you consume enough protein, healthy fat, fibre and iron amongst a number of other important vitamins and minerals.

Breakfast is key to setting up the day ahead. Eating a healthy, balanced breakfast can avoid a dip in insulin levels later on in the day and will prevent you from reaching for processed foods.

It is important as a vegan to make sure that your protein levels do not suffer as part of a vegan diet. There are vasts amount of vegan protein sources available including chickpeas, beans, lentils, tofu, TVP and fortified vegan milk alternatives such as oat or almond milk.

Be sure to snack on nuts and seeds as well as fresh fruit and vegetables to increase the amount of protein and healthy fats consumed.

Carb-rich foods at meal times can prevent your energy from dipping and causing you to want to reach for foods you may consider as a poor choice of food. Fill your plate with ¼ carbohydrates such as rice or pasta, ¼ protein and ½ a plate of vegetables for a balanced meal.
