For those who have chosen a vegan lifestyle you will notice a difference in the way your body reacts and the energy you may have without all the chemicals, additives, etc. that are normally in processed foods, snacks and some food we think are all natural. Once you begin a lifestyle that is different from what you have been accustomed to you will see your energy level rise, your mood changes and even your skin will take on a glow.
Healthy eating doesn't have to mean giving up the sweets such as chocolate or pizze. You can subsitute fresh fruits and vegetables and not even miss what you were eating before. Pizza, breads, and even pasta dishes can be made with vegetables. Sliced, diced and eaten raw. Vegetables are great for snacking, bring to get togethers and even teaching small ones how to eat a healthier way.
Visit your local market or produce stand to find a wide variety of vegetables. Squash, pumpkin, cucumbers, and fruits all can be eaten as it (after washing thoroughly of course). Prepare a tray with dressings for dipping vegetables instead of a bowl full of chips or other empty calorie snacks. Once you begin eating in this manner you will find that you won't have to spend more money just to eat healthy and nutricious. Bring vegetables to work to snack on, pack a school lunch with vegetable slices or fresh fruit for a healthy lunch. You may start a new trend among your children and their friends!
No matter what eating healthy and natural is the best way to go. A glowing complexion, more energy and a positive outlook are a just a few of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle.
