Reasons to try veganuary

Will you be taking part in Veganuary 2022? There are so many good reasons to.

Here are few reasons for you to explore.

 

Taking part in Veganuary isn’t just about eating and enjoying a wholly plant-based for a time. Think about it as a course of ‘treatment’ to clear the junk cumulated in your system in the last 12 months and in particular during the festive period.
The more fibre you consume, better it is for your digestive system.

Depending on the selection of vegetable, nuts or pulse you decide to major on during Veganuary, you’ll have better skin, lush hair, stronger bones and nails.

 

Am sure you have heard this before, eating more plant and less meats & dairies will make you less sluggish. The overwhelming  quantity of minerals and vitamins contained in vegetables are deposited in your system. When eliminating meats for example, you find that you’ll have to up you vegetables and root vegetables consumption to fill you up.

Do make sure that you mix and match often between roots and top of vegetables with pulses, grains and nuts for a balanced diet.

 

Becoming better at cooking isn’t about becoming a chef, but eating a variety of vegetables will help you understand them, from their uncooked point to their mushiest point. Because you are on a challenge and want to do well, you learn to make friend with your kitchen, more knowledgeable, you understand the difference between cooking and eating precook/processed food.

 

During the challenge, you will desire some consistencies and levels of chewiness to recreate the meat effect. Coking some vegetable in someways will help you create the consistencies you re looking for. Things like Cod and chips, chicken nuggets, cheese or milks will be things you will learn to make you own of.

Be mindful of buying ready made mayo, cheeses, chicken nuggets as they may contain more junk than none vegan junk. Just because it is label vegan doesn’t always translate as good for you.  dont fall in to the trap that eating vegan process food is better… Nope, too much sugar, too much fat, cakes, sweets is still bad for you in any diet. so watch out and recreated what you can. Doing you own is often much safer. so, go create and if you need help, get a copy of Plant-based Ideas for Carnivores, the cookbook.

 

One of the reasons why food is more nutritious is because you make better choices, you look closer into the packages of what you buy. You will cook more often, so you know whats in what you eat.

Economical because you’ll eat less meats which often are the most expensive elements of our food plates. We’ve all heard that myth about the plant-based or vegan diet being expensive; not true. for every expensing diet, there is an affordable option. You do not have to shop in Waitrose or Holland & Barrett to get what you need. The vegan market has grown enormously and every supermarket have their own brand of natural or process vegan food. Shop around with your budget in mind, you’ll find what you need.

 

There is something about eating plant-based for a period they makes you more conscious of the environment and especially waste.

The fact that you wont eat meat for a month will not save the planet, but having learnt that you can vary your diet and contribute to the rebalancing of the ecosystem will definitely excite you to want to do more. Because, this is not about jumping for one diet to another, but finding the balance.

 

 

So, has this post convinced you to give Veganuary 2022 a try?

Snack healthier

Hello and happy new Month!

Am sure we all know this, but do you know that snacking constitutes up to 30% of our daily chewing?

Just like Breakfast, lunch, dinner, we ought to look at our snacking much closer.

Snacking is the only ‘meal we do not pay much attention to, but if you ever wondered how you manage to put on weight while religiously planning your other meals, check your snacking.

Below are few tips to snack better.

Eat more often

You’ve heard it before. Yes, you’ve got to eat more often during the day. The question is how, do you eat more often? In the same way that you have set times for your meals, you can decide in advance your snacking times during the day. You can snack as much as you want provided that you know the following:

  1. from your own observations, how many times do you snack a day?
  2. Are you snacking because you are genuinely hungry or are you bored or can this feeling of hunger be dissipated by a glass of water or coffee?
  3. what are you gaining from your snacking? sugar hit, more calories or actual nutrients?
  4. Are you pursuing a better snacking life or just want to eat less of what you are currently eating?
  5. Decide in advance and pack you snack portions for each of your snack breaks.

What you gain

Even if you do not change what you are going to eat during your snack breaks, just looking closely at point 1-5 above will help you to reflect on your eating habits. By planning properly, you will:

  1. waste less time choosing your snacking at breaktime,
  2. you save on £££,
  3. you will be more relaxed during your break and actually have a break,
  4. you’ll be able to differentiate the types of hunger you are dealing with throughout the day,
  5. you will become more aware of the junk you actually consume on a daily basis and reduce it.

If you are actually going to pay more attention to your snacking, you may as well make them beneficial to your body right?

COVID had made us more conscious of the importance of our health, 22% more people have switched to a more plant-based diet since the beginning of the pandemic. Health food shop with online deliveries have performed much better than the rest as people took their diet under the microscope; We’ve now realised that our Pre-COVID diet left us naked as the pandemic hit our lives. We want to be ready if anything else shows up.

So, here are few recommendations for you.

for a better snacking life, plan your snack time and stick to it as much as you can.

  1. Your snacks are an opportunity to drip feed nutrients to our bodies, so choose snack that can help you build up: Natural snacks like nuts & seeds enhanced with natural flavouring and colouring.
  2. only take to your desk the snacks you have prepared for the day, sealed in individual portions.
  3. subscribe to a healthy snack box. That way, you know it is coming every month, all you have to do now is learning to be patient until is time to open a new package.
  4. However many snack you plan a day, do pack a little extra for the time you failed to resist.
