HOW TO GO VEGAN AND MEET ALL YOUR NUTRITIONAL NEEDS?

A vegan lifestyle is not to be devoid of essential nutrients. And if this has been your concern on the path of walking down a healthy lifestyle, then think no further. A vegan diet can be healthy and nutritionally adequate, if planned well. We are here to guide you in incorporating the essential nutrients in your vegan diet, and demystifying all the myths surrounding ‘Veganism.’

1) Iron Proper intake of iron is essential for a number of metabolic functions, including oxygen transportation in the blood, energy production, and immune function. It’s a common myth that vegan diets do not contain sufficient iron. In fact, vegan recipes as simple as fruit and nut smoothies, tofu curry, and legume soups are high in iron. Adding green vegetables such as broccoli, kale, and cabbage to regular salads is another way to add iron to your vegan diet. You can explore fresh green vegetables from our ‘Fresh Produce’ section and get them delivered to your address by shopping from our health food store online

2) Calcium Meat and animal-based products are rich in calcium, but they aren’t the only foods that contain the important mineral. Vegan recipes such as green bean casserole, black-bean soups, tofu quiche with broccoli and spinach, and vegan cakes are calcium rich. Vegan fried rice with spinach and tofu is another calcium-rich vegan recipe worth trying.

3) Protein A vegan diet, if planned properly, gives you enough protein to stay energetic, and maintain healthy immune function, and muscle health. Vegan foods such as grains, legumes, soy products, and nuts are rich in protein. What’s best about them is that they are versatile; you can use them in various healthy recipes, including stews, broths, vegan fried rice, and soups.

4) Vitamin C Vitamin C is one of the most important micronutrients as it is a good source of energy and is an immune booster. You can start your day by pairing fresh orange juice with tasty vegan breakfast recipes such as french toast, coconut and banana pancakes, and vegan sandwiches. You can also have strawberry custard with cold organic milk or spinach salad with tofu and white beans to get your daily dose of Vitamin C.

5) Omega-3 Fatty Acids Adding Omega-3 fatty acids to your vegan diet is a must as your body isn’t capable of making these healthy fats. You might have come across different health magazines and online portals listing salmon, oysters, and mackerel as Omega-3 fatty acids superfoods. But did you know that vegan food items such as flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and brussels sprouts are also good plant-based sources of Omega-3 fatty acids? Add flaxseeds and chia seeds to vegan crackers and puddings to keep your taste buds happy! Are you a vegan and are looking for a health food store in Dubai?
