    One Month Vegan—It’s Not So Hard

    Vegan For One Month

    We all know at least one person who has spent one month as a vegan. While it might sound daunting at first, the truth is it’s not all that tricky to do. In fact, with the genuinely delicious meat and dairy free alternatives—you may not notice it as much as you think.

    Variety Is The Spice Of Life—And Of Your Vegan Diet

    No, you won’t be eating black beans, brown rice, and veggies for all of your meals. Before you go vegan, you need to identify a nice variety of meals. Head online for vegan recipes, chat with vegan friends, and if it fits in your budget find a vegan-friendly deli or restaurant. Don’t just look for the vegan alternatives to your usual meals, like swapping coconut yogurt for dairy yogurt or eggs for vegan eggs, but really explore your options.

    Your Food Will Be Full Of Flavor

    What many who go vegan for a month are surprised to find, is that vegan food is really tasty. By preparing a greater variety of produce, spices, and grains—you will likely continue eating many of the recipes you try in the next month.

    Count Your Protein, Calcium, And Sugar

    As long as you enjoy a nice variety of fruits and veggies every day, you will likely consume most of the vitamins your body requires. However, with the loss of meat and dairy, you need to be conscious of your protein and calcium intake. Aim for 50 grams of protein per day and 1,000 of calcium. When it comes to sugar, avoid the trap many short-term vegans fall into—which is overindulging in vegan sweets.

    Going vegan for 30 days will boost your energy, improve digestion, boost immunity and overall health, and maybe even help you shed a few pounds.
