Mistakes when going vegan….and how to avoid them
There is no “right” or “wrong” way to eat. Each of us are unique. Our dietary needs, caloric requirements, lifestyle, etc. are all highly individualized and can change depending on what you're dealing with at the time.
It’s clear that we would all benefit from eating more veggies/fruits—more whole foods. For some people that means eating 100% plant based or vegan and for others that just means trying to get to your servings in a day. Whatever you are, there are a few issues when people transition into a more plant-based diet.
The goal is to help make it as easy as possible for you to incorporate more plants into your diet and find a balance that is realistic for you!
Note that these recommendations are also relevant if you aren't plant-based but struggle with low energy and healthy eating.
