About two months ago I went vegetarian, and a month ago I went vegan, and I’ve never felt better. I’ve lost 31 pounds (still a long ways to go!) and I have sooo much more energy during the day. That being said, I want to make sure that I’m doing it properly, nutrition wise, to ensure its sustainable long term.
I found this “Vegan Food Pyramid” and I plan on following it as best I can, but I’m wondering if anyone wouldn’t mind taking the time to explain it to me, section by section. What am I getting from each one? Some are obvious like calcium from the dairy etc, but if anyone knowledgeable about nutrition can explain to me section by section why I need more or less of it and what they do for me, it would really help to keep me on track. Thanks!!!
um… I apparently am not allowed to have outside links in my messages, since VegTalk just shot me down… haha. But to see the pyramid I am asking about, google image search “vegan food pyramid” and its the one with the beach-y background.
