Beginner’s Guide to a Plant-based Eating Plan

Besides exercising and taking vitamins, the diet that we follow is as important as both of these things combined. You are, after all, what you eat, and following a plant-based eating plan can improve your overall health and boost your immune system. Here is a Beginner’s Guide to a Plant-based Eating Plan:

Take it step-by-step

Move on to incorporating more plant foods into your daily meals. Foods that you love can always be replaced with plant-based substitutes, such as using lentils for bolognese sauce instead of beef.

Try vegan alternatives

Adopting a more plant-based eating plan is a long-term lifestyle change. You’re bound to face cravings from time to time. To adjust to such a plan, gradually replace some animal products with vegan alternatives. There is a variety of vegan food – you have to explore the exciting options.

Don’t be hard on yourself for ‘slipping up’

It can take months to adopt a new way of eating and judging yourself whenever you give in to cravings, but that’s not fair. Instead, please focus on the positive steps you’ve made and build on them.
