Vegan Diet – Overall
When you go vegan it means you cut out meat, dairy, fish, poultry, eggs and any foods containing ingredients from these foods. In some cases you may decide to go raw vegan, meaning that no food gets cooked beyond a certain temperature. If you think the diet sounds Spartan, remember that you still get to eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, whole grains and plant-based oils. Thanks to a burgeoning vegan community, you can find a huge compendium of recipes online and restaurants that offer prepared foods and menus. It is important to track protein, calcium and other vitamins and nutrients since you are cutting out whole food groups that usually supply these essential nutrients.
