3 Things that are wrong with your vegan diet


1. You're a lazy vegan


You've nixed the animal products from your lifestyle, yet you've decided to primarily eat processed vegan products. Sure, packages of ready-eat or ready-to-heat vegan meals are certainly more convenient that making your meals from scratch, but you're depriving your body of the health benefits and nutrition from fresh foods that haven't been packaged at a factory.

2. You eat the same vegan meals every week


Variety is truly the spice of life as well as the key to a balanced, healthy vegan diet. Even though you've grown comfortable with your small repertoire of easy vegan recipes, broaden your vegan cooking horizon so you not only stay inspired to stay vegan, but, most important, you widen the spectrum of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and other nutrients you consume so you don't suffer a deficiency that could have a negative impact on your health.

3. You don't do your research


Commendably, you eat fruits and vegetables straight out of your garden or from the farmers' market, but you have failed to research veganism and the many other vegan foods you should be eating to ensure you're following a balanced diet. Are you getting enough iron, calcium, or vitamin B-12? Are you deficient in protein? There are plenty of books and cookbooks to choose from, so take the time to learn how to healthfully follow a vegan diet.
