5 Vegan diet tips for a healthier New Year

1. Try new vegan recipes

Get out of your daily diet rut by committing to at least one new vegan meal a day. This will not only improve your nutrient intake (relying on the same dozen recipes every week can lead to deficiencies), it will also reinspire your love for eating vegan.

2. Eat more salads

Sure, a vegan diet is predominantly plant-based, if you're looking to lose weight or need a boost in your antioxidant intake, salads are the way to go. Just be sure to go light on dressings so you don't turn a healthy vegan salad into a vegan diet disaster.

3. Venture into new meat alternatives

Chomping tofu everyday is an inevitably boring way to consume adequate protein. Try other vegan protein sources to add variety to your daily meals.

4. Seek out healthy vegan recipes

Vegan recipes may be animal-free, but that doesn't mean they are also healthy and diet-friendly. Trim calories and fat from your daily meals by cooking healthy vegan recipes.

5. Do dessert

Store-bought vegan desserts are a convenient grab, but nothing beats homemade vegan desserts. Trying new vegan treats can actually help you trim your waist because your tastebuds won't grow bored and urge you to overeat your usual desserts trying to get satisfied.

Happy vegan eating in the New Year!
