Through my Vegan Vitality course I seek to share ideas and recipes for a more healthy way of eating. In our rushed busy lives it is easy to over-rely on convenience foods. In this course it’s good to focus is on nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables, beans and whole grains
The daily dozen as recommended by Michael Greger in How Not to Die is a particularly useful guide. For my last course I set the portions out on a work station for everyone to see.
Some items are really easy to include naturally and some are a bit more of a challenge!
- Other fruit
- Cruciferous vegetables
- Other vegetables
- Nuts and Seeds
- Whole grains
Breakfast is a good way to start with a portion of grain, topped with berries, fruit nuts and a tablespoon of flaxseed.
For lunch a portion of hummus or bean pate with veg sticks, broccoli, and wholegrain flat bread. Or a leafy salad with beans.
The evening meal could be a simple tofu stir fry with vegetables and greens served with wholegrain rice.
I’d really recommend reading the book and having a go at the daily dozen challenge! https://nutritionfacts.org/daily-dozen-challenge/
