Most people assume that being vegan is hard and that you have to give up all of your favorite foods. It’s funny how many times people ask, do vegans eat grass? No, vegans don’t eat grass, but sometimes a huge salad hits the spot!
Some people think vegan food is boring and they can’t see themselves ever becoming vegan. I was one of those people until I started experimenting with different recipes and tasted new foods. A whole new world opens to you when you give veganism a try.
What do vegans eat, if not grass?
So, what do vegans eat, if not grass? Well, it’s pretty simple really. I mostly eat fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes.
My meals usually consist of salads with lots of fresh veggies and nuts or beans; brown rice pasta with a vegetable marinara sauce; baked sweet potatoes with steamed broccoli and hummus; tofu stir fry over brown rice; homemade soups; etc.
What most people don’t realize is that you can make so many things with veggies and other plant-based ingredients. There are so many recipes on the internet that will show you how to make delicious vegan food.
It’s not surprising that most people have no idea what vegans eat. The media is promoting the idea that only cow’s milk is good for you and humans have been drinking it for ages.
Most people have no idea how to get their calcium from other sources. They are also saying that meat is a part of our history and that people need to eat it to be healthy. This has also been proven false by several studies.
Don’t feel bad if you’re a little confused about where vegans get their nutrients. It’s not something we learn about in school, and it takes some time to figure out. The truth is, there are many ways to get your nutrition from plant-based foods.
The World health organization says, that transitioning to plant-based diets which minimize or eliminate animal products is beneficial to our health. So don’t worry if you are new to veganism and are worried about eating the right foods. You can be a healthy vegan.
Hi, I’m Petra and for most of my life, I was an omnivore. A vegan couple made me curious about veganism, so I did some research. What I found out about the animals, our planet, and the health benefits of a vegan diet made me go vegan overnight. It’s been 5 years now and it’s been one of the best decisions of my life.
