Those wanting a try a new way of eating, be it for one day per week or permanently, have begun to look past not just animal meat but also animal products. Veganism can be a great way to improve your health while also help you environment.  For those who venture into this newly found territory be wary that when removing certain aspects of your diet (such as meat) you must find other way of replacing the nutrients you may lose.

Protein is most likely the most easily lost nutrient, especially when removing meat from ones diet. It can be replaced by the consumption of seeds, such as sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds. Tofu are also a great way of replacing protein, and can be added to many meals. Nuts and legumes also are high in protein and can be added to meals easily.

Vegan diets tend to be low in fat (which can be a good thing), but a healthy diet must still have heart friendly fatty acids. To help maintain these levels, coconut oil, seed butter and margarines can be consumed.

The above two are examples of how there may be a deficiency of nutrients if converting to a vegan diet, for a more in-depth look visit the website below.
