“What can I eat with a totally vegetable diet ?!”
Whether you’re new to the world of 100% plant-based food or you’re an experienced vegan looking for more variety, it’s natural to wonder about your options.
Carrots and broccoli are a fact.
But what about vegetable and vegan “meat” products? Is it worth a try?
In addition, people curious about plants have been warned that it is difficult get enough protein in a plant-based diet, or that they should take extra precaution to avoid deficiencies. It is understandable that they want to make sure that they meet their needs.
Often, our customers want to know things like:
- Is peanut butter a decent source of protein?
- How often should I eat soy?
- Since I don’t eat fish, what healthy fats should I incorporate?
- Can you eat pasta? (Please say yes.)
Questions like these are the reasons why we have created this visual list of easy-to-use foods for vegetable and vegan eateries.
It is designed to help you make decisions that fit your needs, whether you have been living in a totally vegetable way for years or you are a total beginner.
Fair Warning: We will not give you an official list of all-vegetable foods divided into “approved” and “out of bounds” categories.
This often causes feelings of frustration and deprivation. And it rarely helps people find an approach they can hold.
Instead, we’ll show you how to think about plant-based foods in a spectrum ranging from “eat more” to “eat more” and “eat less”.
Use this continuum to make decisions that are “a little better,” whether it’s navigating the aisles of the grocery store, cooking a homemade meal, or ordering a menu.
As a bonus, we’ve provided space to create your own herbal food continuum. This way, you can create a delicious menu of healthy options that suit you.
