Hey is it anyone on here that is vegan? Can you give me some good ideas as to how to start off.
Great idea, yes mashed potatoes with
Fake ground beef With oniun, then mix some milk and flour in a bottle Shake it but it to the rest and some salt and vegetable stock.
Or chili con carne just with fake meat.
oatmeal with fruit and flaxseed for breakfast with almond milk
Sounds good! What are all the benefits of being vegan?
I’m not a fan of supplements but you need b12 from somewhere and plant foods do not have it
B12 deficiency can lead to irreversible nerve damage
Eat like normal just cut out meat, and maybe just do dairy for now so you can still get protein and b vitamins. Then from there if you want go full vegan. Cutting meat is the first step though.
used to be vegan for 4 years. now vegetarian. I didn’t like to cook and was a little underweight when I was vegan. I ate a lot of nuts and seeds and had smoothies and oatmeal for breakfast. rice and beans is a good one and is easy to make and loaded baked potatoes. you can also make a weeks worth of salad one day a week and refrigerate it. don’t be afraid of oils, like olive or avocado. some people say coconut oil is good for you, but im not sure, I avoid it. i’m still almost vegan, but just have 3 or 4 servings of cheese a day.
anyways good luck. the hardest part is being around non vegans like family and friends, you will probably feel like an outcast on holiday dinners and BBQ’s. I did.
Cut out meat then after a while
Cut out eggs and fish then
Cut out milk if you want but I don’t see why
Continue eating unprocessed grain, dark green salads, and fruits (tomatoes and cucumber included here)
Then add a fat of your choice
Start by looking at ingredients as many foods have hidden animal products in them. Make stir fry with veggies and beans. Eat meals with beans and rice or tofu or quinoa. Eat fruit. Try rice milk or almond or coconut milk - I prefer rice milk, my daughter prefers almond milk, and my husband likes coconut milk. For quick meals try looking at Amy’s soups as many are vegan.
@anon90843118 is right about B12
Minimum you’re going to need atleast 45g protein per day total you may get half of that or more from grains but then you’ll need maybe 25g more
Great options for that are:
Tomator paste -6g per small 150ml can
Milk - 8g per cup
Idk what your caloric requirements are but aim for about 50% from carbs but not fast disolvong carbs. Low GI garbs like corn, steel cut oats, rye bread, aldente pasta which will keep your blood sugar stable
Nutritional Yeast Flakes are great.
Its a source of B12 (think it depends on the brand you buy) and it also has a cheesy flavor.
It can be sprinkled on foods for taste or it can be used to make cheeses\sauces.
