Contrary to popular belief a plant-based diet doesn't just consist of
lettuce leaves! There are lots of different and exciting foods freely
available in all the major supermarkets, as well as health food shops and
many online stores, and what's even better is that without compromising on
taste and variety, you get to eat foods that are much better for you than
animal derived equivalents as they contain absolutely no cholesterol.
We realise that evolving to a diet free of animal products can seem very
daunting at first. "What do you eat?" is the most common question asked of a vegan!
The links below contain a gallery of just some of the foods that we eat (here in
the UK) - and where you can get them - with a particular focus on the types of
food that will make your transition much easier.
We understand that habits
are very hard to break but if you think that no longer including meat, fish,
dairy and eggs in your diet is going to leave a big void on your dinner
plate, fear not for there are loads of foods which have been made for
convenience that will replace the foods that you are
used to eating. There
are many meat and fish substitutes, lots of dairy free "cheeses" and milks
and a vast array of scrumptious ice-cream alternatives (to name just a few
things) that will make you wonder why you took so long to change your
lifestyle. And all of them are so much better for your health.
Read on and enjoy!
