Our Tips to Healthy Transition to a Vegan Diet series continues! Today, Teshia and I talk about natural supplements for vegans and how you can supplement essential minerals and vitamins when transitioning to a vegan diet.
It’s funny that most of the time we start thinking about consuming enough nutrients when we consider making a dietary change, such as becoming a vegan. Did you know that while vegans tend to be deficient in three nutrients (vitamin B12, iodine and calcium), average omnivores tend to be deficient in seven!
Teshia rightly noticed that when you make the transition to a vegan diet, you are already better off since you will be eliminating many processed foods from your diet and substituting them with nutrient-rich, whole foods. So don’t freak yourself out about supplements!
When you are in a stage of learning about nutrition and your new diet, there is a chance of you might be missing certain nutrients. Introducing more vegan superfoods into your diet is a great way to increase your nutrient intake. Be adventurous with your food! Give spirulina, quinoa, chlorella, kale, maca, goji berries, chia seeds, bee pollen a try!
These nutrient-dense foods will not only help you with getting enough minerals and vitamins into your body, but will also assist with maintaining a healthy weight, fighting diseases, and feeling great every day.
Our bodies are designed to feel amazing. Unfortunately, not a lot of people have the opportunity to experience that. Take your health into your hands! TODAY!
