There are a few essentials that need to be considered when losing your veganity and if your mind and body are not primed and ready for the transition then it may prove to be a painful experience. However, they say it’s only in the beginning phase. Bringing back those innocent first-time mems’? No, you naughty boys and girls. Please take that mind out of the gutter, thank you. I’m talking about the other ‘V’ word. Veganism. Headlining as the definitive necessity yet mocked for not being able to indulge in any of the good stuff, as controversial as this subject is, I want you educated on all the things. This includes all dietary habits and lifestyles, sans the judgement.
Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, carnivore, a wannabe vegan (a diet consisting solely of Oreos with peanut butter and spaghetti), a flexitarian, or as we like to call it, a naughty pescatarian, defined as someone who consumes fish, meat, and dairy on occasion. Perhaps you have adopted this way of living already, are transitioning for ethical reasons, or are simply curious. Whatever the case, I want to give you the goss on the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are needed when consuming a vegan diet, and how to avoid deficiencies. There are a lot of ‘vegans’ claiming to be walking chickpeas but are surviving on the bare minimum, resulting in a major lack of nutrients.
This article is not to convert anyone but to provide knowledge and pose questioning. A lot of us are exploring different food avenues and although the vegan diet is not an ideal, sustainable diet for every person, at the very least, we want you unbridled with joy and striving for equilibrium.
