VEGAN DIET MADE EASY
Thinking about making the switch? It can be pretty confusing right?
With all of the information on veganism out there, it is difficult to understand what exactly you need. Of course everyone’s needs are different, the key is to ensure that you are nourishing your body with all of the right macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
Now before I go further on this subject, I want to say that I am someone who believes that our Higher Self knows intrinsically what is beneficial for us. Before making a major switch, I deeply encourage you to meditate on this decision for a few days until you know that this is the right move for you. Also know, that a vegan lifestyle may be something that stays with you for a period of time in your life, after which, you may transition out of it.
Making the switch can be a very healing and empowering decision physically, mentally and spiritually. A balanced vegan lifestyle linked to an increase of energy a reduced risk of disease a more alkaline internal environment and a healthier physique overall.
