Guys, I’m going to say it loud and proud: I love a plant-based diet. I’ve been vegan for years, and at 53, I’ve never felt better!! I encourage everyone to try a diet that’s more rich in plants and whole foods, so here are my 7 tips for trying a whole-foods, vegan diet.
1 Really consider the “whole” as in whole foods plant-based (example: think of an olive, versus olive oil)
2 Don’t try to do this all at once – It’s a marathon, not a sprint!
3 Don’t stress the protein
4 Think about what you CAN eat, instead of what you can’t
5 Gravitate towards “feel good food”
6 When in doubt, go for the foods that fight diseases
7 Always take a B12 Vitamin when you’re on a plant-based diet
