Vegan Foods and Recipes FAQs

What is vegan food?

Vegan food includes fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts, grains, dairy-alternatives and plant-based foods like tofu. It is any food that is not derived from animals in any way.

What can't vegans eat?

A vegan diet eradicates any product or ingredient that is produced by or made from an animal. This includes meat, dairy products, honey and eggs.

How to begin a vegan diet?

If you're finding switching to a vegan diet difficult then a good way to begin is by slowly substituting your carnivorous meals for plant-based ones, one by one. Whether this is opting for a vegan breakfast, lunch or one vegan dinner recipe a week, starting small can make it easier to phase into a vegan diet.

How healthy is a vegan diet?

If you carefully plan your vegan diet then it can be simple to ensure it is as healthy and balanced as a meat-eaters diet. Ensure you substitute key sources of protein, nutritents and fibre with vegan options to make sure your body continue to get what it needs. A main issue with a vegan diet, is similar to a non-vegan diet, ensuring you aren't carbohydrate-heavy and overloading your meals with starch.

How to make a recipe vegan?

You can easily make your favourite meat dishes vegan by substituting any none vegan ingredients for plant-based ones. The main way to substitute foods successfully is to opt for ingredients that have similar textures to the original.

How to get calcium on a vegan diet?

You may think the lack of dairy in a vegan diet may cause calcium deficiency, however, there are lots of vegan-friendly ingredients you can get your calcium fix from. Leafy vegetables, sesame seeds, dried fruits and unsweetened soya drinks can all help provide calcium to your vegan diet.

How to get more protein in a vegan diet?

Achieving the correct protein levels with a vegan diet is possible. High protein vegan ingredients are lentils, chickpeas, quinoa, nuts, seeds and oats. Creating dishes complete with these fantastic vegan foods will ensure your vegan diet is full of high protein options.

How to get iron within a vegan diet?

Good sources of iron for those on a vegan diet are pulses, greens such as broccoli and a range of dried fruits like apricots, figs or prunes. Whilst red meat is often a main source of iron in a regular diet, the lack of it does not mean a vegan diet can achieve regular levels of iron, too.
