These easy food substitutes can help you turn vegan with ease
The biggest challenge one faces in their journey to turn vegan is about figuring out what kind of food can be consumed when one has stopped consuming some kinds of food. Often, the hinderance to make this lifestyle choice is the thought that there would be fewer food options or substitutes for regular items that offer the required nutrition that your body needs. On the contrary, nutritionists and health coaches tell us that the choices of food available in the local markets for vegans are plenty. Here are few suggestions on food substitutes that could help you make that transition with ease.
Replace meat with tofu, soya chunks and jackfruits
One of the easy substitutes for former non-vegetarians who are now vegan beginners are mock meat made up of tofu, soya chunks and jackfruit. Tofu, which is a good source of ‘complete’ protein along with fibre, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper and manganese, makes it a great substitute for meat. Soya chunks are also full of polyunsaturated fats and rich in protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Jackfruit is also a source of good fibre and makes for a good substitute for meat.
