This is a positive, authoritative look at the health questions that surround veganism so that you can get the most out of your plant-based diet.
Veganism is one of the fastest growing movements across the world, with 3.5 million people in the UK having cut out animal products completely. This diet, however, is not without its difficulties. As with any diet, when you change what you eat, you also have to change the way you eat and how you think about food. It is easy, in 2020, to fall down a rabbit hole of vegan fast food and beans on toast and end up deficient in iron, iodine, omega-3 fatty acids and calcium. On a vegan diet it can sometimes also be difficult to get enough high-quality proteins and even calories. Lack of these nutrients may lead to unwanted symptoms of feeling sluggish or low in energy, looking pale and suffering mood swings. Simply cutting out meat and eating more veg doesn't guarantee a healthy diet. With this book as your companion, you can remedy these pitfalls so that you feel healthy and bursting with energy and vitality.
This is the simple, flexible and nutritionally approved way to make it easier to stick to a vegan diet without compromising on health.
