Too much refined carbohydrate foods and drinks including alcohol keep the body wanting more and more. Actually never really feeling satisfied. This is inevitable as it's the way the body is designed.

Veganism is a fast growing food and ethical movement. For good reason, becoming a vegan can have many health as well as environmental benefits. Switching to a vegan diet however does not automatically guarantee it is going to be healthy. Becoming a 'healthy vegan' requires a certain approach to sourcing and preparing food in order to obtain the full benefits. If you are considering switching to a vegan diet, (either full or part time) there are some important things to take into account.
The beauty of becoming a vegan, is that you can source all of your dietary requirements from plant sources meaning you can unload your body from unhealthy and toxic animal products and foods processed using animal ingredients.
One of the challenges of radically changing any diet can be learning how to readjust your shopping and food preparation regime for maximum health and convenience. In the case of switching to a vegan diet, it is especially important, sensible and less time consuming to consult a good Nutritionist, who can advise you on how to meet all your dietary requirements for proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the right proportions.
It is important to discern and understand that many of the new vegan products being introduced into the market can be highly processed, toxic to the body and not recommended for a healthy diet. For example some of the fake meats and dairy products on the market such mock bacon, roast, sausages, and cheese, can be made from GM soy ingredients which contain highly processed hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP). Genetically modified and over processed foods whether of plant or animal origin, can be equally as harmful to the body and environment.
If you decide to become a vegan (or want to become a healthier vegan), be sure to consult a good Nutritionist who can support and guide you in developing a balanced and nutritious plan that ensures you meet all your daily requirements, using whole, natural and healthy ingredients, especially if you have any health conditions or concerns, train hard or suffer from allergies. This way you can be better educated on what your particular needs might be in relation to a vegan diet.
It’s actually really nice and interesting when you know how. Otherwise, try a vegan day once or twice a week to mix things up a bit and unload your body from having to process all those animal products. It’s extremely beneficial, when you know how!
There are many delicious, easy and healthy vegan / plant based recipes! See photos below for some simple and nutritious ideas. Whether being vegan is a full or part-time thing for you, do ensure you get the help you need to do it right both for you and for the planet!!
