Critical Nutrients on a vegan diet
Recently I have released two podcast episodes covering exactly this topic. As there is a lot of information covered in both episodes (#5 & #6), I decided that I am going to give you a small summary and share a few tips with you, so you can make sure you are getting all of the essential nutrients in your diet.
Generally, I always advocate for a whole food plant based diet, as I believe it to be the healthiest. A whole food plant based diet is made up of 5 main food groups which are: whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits and nuts & seeds.
I personally follow the 80-20 rule, which means that 80% of the time I eat a whole food plant based diet and the other 20% I like to indulge in vegan junk food like ice cream, pizza, burgers, etc.
If you are currently transitioning into veganism or you are already vegan, it is important to make regular blood checks. If it is the case that you are low on some nutrient it is advised to work closely with your doctor or nutritionist and work on an adequate meal plan and/or supplementation.
And now let’s have a look at the list of nutrients that might be critical on a vegan/plant based diet and what to do:
I hope this information could help you in some kind of way. You can always reach out to me at any time if you need more help or advice. I love connecting with every single one of you.
