4 Fantastic Ways to Get All the Vitamins You Need

Whether you are a vegan for ethical reasons or dietary concerns, the bottom line is that you would like to be the healthiest vegan that you can. There is a common misconception that those who follow a vegan diet do not get enough essential vitamins and minerals. The truth is that vegans can get all of the vitamins that they need from a plant-based diet.

It would be unrealistic to think that there are just one or two plants that will provide all of the vitamins that a person needs. However, there are several nutrient dense “superfoods” that provide large amounts of the vitamins and minerals that you need. By incorporating superfoods into your daily diet, it will be almost effortless to get a majority of what your body needs. All it takes is planning ahead and a little creativity. Here are 4 simple ways to get a wide spectrum of vitamins into your diet.

Make Every Meal Count

Many of the foods and snacks in the grocery store are full of empty calories. Just because a food is vegan does not mean that it is a healthy food. Be sure to snack on foods that have more to offer than just tasting good. For example, you may be tempted to reach for potato chips to satisfy a salty craving. However, salted nuts are a better choice because they are a good source of protein.

Take a Multivitamin

Regardless of how healthy you eat, there may still be some vitamins that you do not get enough of. The easiest way to fill a nutritional gap is through a complete multi-vitamin supplement. Taking vegan multi-vitamins while also eating a complete diet is the best way to ensure that you are getting everything that you need on a regular basis. There are many multi-vitamins available on the market today. Take your time and choose the one that is best for you.

Calm a Sweet Tooth With Homemade Treats

It should be no surprise that desserts baked at home are better for you than the kind that can be bought in the grocery store. Store bought sweets are full of sugar, fat, and other unpronounceable ingredients that do not provide your body with any nutrition. Homemade sweets and treats are better for you in almost every way. There are many vegan dessert recipes available that are made with simple, wholesome ingredients that add nutrients to your body. Non-dairy cheesecake, coconut milk frosting, chickpea blondies and black bean brownies are some popular plant-based desserts that are simple to prepare. What could be better than desserts that you can eat without feeling guilty afterward?

Eat a Variety of Foods

It may seem obvious but eating a wide variety of vegetables, fruits and nuts is the best way to get a wide spectrum of vitamins into your diet. Do not be afraid to try new foods. Limiting your diet to only a handful of “safe foods” is a sure way to become malnourished. Mother Nature has provided everything that you need to thrive. It is up to you to find ways to make it work for you. Do not be discouraged if you do not like a new food the first time that you eat it. There are so many ways that different foods can be prepared; give new foods a solid chance before writing it off.

In closing, it is easy to not be a Junk Food Vegan. It starts with being mindful about what you are putting into your body. Read the ingredients of the foods that you purchase to be sure that you know what you are getting out of the foods.

    This is not just the ordinary reviews about spell casters that floods the web everyday, mine is written out of a personal experience & observation. I count it a privilege to judiciously use this life time opportunity given to me by a genius (Dr. Wakina) that possess a high level of spiritual potential to make infeasible feasible. Idk if it is right to call him an angel because he is exceptional in incomparable for making life, finance, breakup and divorce easier to resolve with a perfect and lasting solution. After the experience & observation I obtained within 7 years my Husband left me, I decided to settle comfortable with the benefit of appreciating Dr. Wakina for doing what 11 persons cannot do. The difference was clear from the moment I sent “can you help me get back my husband?” to his email: ( I am happy for not being the depressed & lost woman I used to be before I met a great healer. Words cannot express my appreciation to Dr. Wakina Love Temple.
