KEEP YOUR DIET VARIED
AND INTERESTING
Going vegan with no substitutes to graze
on is a sure-fire way to leave you hangrily
succumbing to half a block of cheddar as
an early evening snack. Finding some
acceptable swaps to your staple meals,
spreads and snacks, is crucial to keeping
your new lifestyle on track.
Selene says: "During your first few weeks
of trying a plant-based diet, don't feel the
need to prepare elaborate dishes that use
obscure ingredients. It will feel much
easier if you stick to some of your
favourite dishes and veganise them."

DHA

VITAMIN B12

While many forms of
omega-3 can be found
in plant-based sources
like flaxseeds, chia
seeds and walnuts, the
same accessibility can not be
said for DHA - a fatty omega-3 acid
primarily found in oily fish. Essential for
sustaining attention and processing
information, supplementation of DHA is
key for vegetarians and vegans.
Kate says: "Omega-3 fats are particularly
beneficial for brain function, heart
health and lowering the risk of
cardiovascular diseases."
BALANCE recommends: Heights Smart
Supplement, yourheights.com

This essential nutrient
is generally only found
in animal products such
as fish, meat, eggs, as
well as dairy produce,
so vegans can often
be left deficient.
Kate says: "Vitamin B12 plays a key role
in the release of energy from food, keeps
the blood cells in the body working at
their peak, and helps in the production of
DNA. A lack of this vitamin can lead to
tiredness, weakness, damage to the
nervous system, low mood or depression
and trouble concentrating."
