Tips For New Vegans

Veganise your favourite comfort foods

Making your favorite comfort foods vegan has never been easier—all you need to do is replace the animal products with vegan alternatives! From mac and cheese to curd rice, almost everything can be veganised by simply switching a few ingredients.

Plan your meals

Planning your meals in advance can help ensure that you’re satiated through the week. Check out these great meal plans or come up with your own!

Accidentally vegan foods

You’ll be surprised to find that many store-bought foods are “accidentally” vegan. Simply read the ingredients listed on food packages the next time you walk down a grocery store aisle. From chocolates to namkeen, you’ll find a wide range of packaged foods that happen to be free from animal products!

Allergen warnings

When reading ingredients lists, you may come across allergen warnings such as “may contain milk solids.” Don’t worry—allergen warnings are usually for people who have severe food allergies and it doesn’t necessarily mean that the product contains dairy or other animal products.

Nutrition

Eating high-protein foods such as beans, lentils, peanuts, and vegetarian meats will meet your daily protein requirements and provide satisfying meals. To cover your bases, consider taking a daily multivitamin with B12, or eating B12-fortified foods, such as soymilk and cereals. Click here for more in-depth nutrition tips.
