Thinking of going vegan but afraid to make the first step? If so, then Vegan Diet for Beginners is the right book for you!
What's a vegan diet?
A vegan diet means that you eat no animal products containing dairy products. Eradicating what makes up the majority of foods used in the typical American diet can be extremely overwhelming. My first suggestion is to transition in steps, and don't do it all at once. Take a slow start.
Even if you're not involved in the vegan diet, this book is a great addition to your collection due to the informative section about desires. Ever have those desires for something crispy, or sweet and salty? Well, these needs are described in detail, and I suggest a healthy alternative that recognizes the vitamin deficiency and the food that would address that desire.
For instance, have an impulsive desire for chocolate? It means your body might actually be craving magnesium, which can be found in seeds, nuts, fruit, and legumes. Are you craving sweet or sugary foods? Then your body might require carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, or chromium. These vitamins are found in fresh fruits and broccoli, just to name a couple.
