Don’t forget protein
Protein is the macronutrient most commonly lacking among my vegan clients. Since animal foods are a complete source of protein and have all the essential amino acids—the building blocks of every cell in your body —when you don’t eat eggs, dairy, chicken, meat or fish, you need to be creative with protein choices. Go with a variety of quinoa, nuts, seeds, spirulina, broccoli, spinach, kale, lentils, tempeh and plant-based protein powders.
If you choose a vegan diet and lifestyle, be sure you get enough iron, B12 and protein so you can experience your most joyous health.
