Regardless of why you’re going vegan — whether it’s for health, environmental, ethical, or personal reasons — making the change can really be a challenge,
This week we are launching our Vegan Proteins range here at myvitamins and to celebrate, we asked our Nutritionist Ashley English for his top tips if you are thinking about making the switch to veganism.
Meat is out, out for good
That’s for starters, right? Meat is out if you’re going vegan, which in one sense, is liberating — you’ll save money and actually, cooking meat can be a bit of a chore sometimes. On the other hand, though, you will be cutting out a vast swath of protein and other nutrients, which you’ll need to replace, pronto. What sort of nutrients will you cut out when you cut out meat?
All essential for the growth and maintenance of muscle and the nervous system. But, fear not, because there are plenty of viable sources of vegan protein around these days, including:
- Vegan Protein
- Pea Protein
- Nuts nut butters (Peanut Butter, Almond Butter)
