What happens to you when you change over from a typical western style diet to a vegan diet?
Change of energy
Whole foods like vegetables and fruits are recognisably better sources of energy as opposed to animal products, but do vegans have more energy? The answer to that is circumstantial. Everybody requires a certain amount of vitamins and nutrients be consumed daily for optimal performance.
With a large focus on infusing delicious cooked vegetables with PICKLD seasoning you can keep what usually is a prep consuming task as an easy to do job!
I am peeling, slicing and dicing machine on the weekend! But with the inclusion of PICKLD seasoning, I am able to bring some fantastic dishes to life in a short amount of time.
When snacking throughout the day I prepare carrots, celery, capsicum and onions so everything is ready to eat raw or ready to go into a pan to be transformed into a delicious and nutritious meal at the drop of a hat. As PICKLD seasoning is pre-cooked you are also able to use it as a seasoning on top of meals and salads.
Preparation is key!
In addition to chopping veggies, I also prepare my various salads for the week, with an added vegan savoury flavouring you have a delicious dish. By spending some time prepping I can change things up as the week goes on, making prior preparations for the week gives me no excuses. I’m eating clean and healthy every day and putting in a bit of effort on the weekend. For me the payoffs are fantastic. My blood sugar stays pretty even, and I don’t spend too much time worrying frantically as much about cooking or prepping during the week.
Neither man nor woman can survive on veggies and beans alone! You need additional fibre, and sometimes you need to add some whole grains to keep the tummy happy. My go-to is oatmeal, and I love it! For others, it can be an acquired taste.
Add-ons to make a breakfast like oatmeal more appealing:
- Nuts, Walnuts
- Chia seeds
- Cinnamon (helps stabilise blood sugar)
- Blueberries (colour and sweetness)
- Beans, Beans the Magical Fruit…
With a large amount of some other options
It’s a Gut Feeling
The gut is a magical place with both good and bad bacteria. The trick is a balance. Boosting the good bacteria is one significant benefit of a vegan diet. Keeping the good bacteria in charge of the gut helps with things like bloating, tiredness and that overall feeling of malaise. Slowly eliminating them from your diet leaves you feeling refreshed and energetic. It’s helpful to keep track of what you eat and record how you feel as well. There are several apps that accomplish this quite nicely.
Resistance to Disease
Who doesn’t want to resist disease? A significant benefit of the vegan diet/lifestyle is the reduced risk of heart disease, reduced risk of certain cancers and diabetes. There are three big ones right there!
Phytonutrients are the powerhouses found in fruits and veggies that help increase various health boosts. Did we mention lower cholesterol?
Yes, that’s another benefit, less cholesterol clogging up those arteries.
The vegan lifestyle is not for everyone but does have a large list of benefits. Make the move today to the vegan diet/lifestyle for better health tomorrow. Enjoy the benefits that only the vegan diet can offer.
