Following a vegan diet or meat-free meal plan that’s rich in good quality carbohydrates, fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy fats and plant-based protein is great for your digestive system and in my clinical experience, it has significantly improved some of my clients’ acne issues.
Swap out your usual proteins such as chicken and red meat for plant-based alternatives. It’s important to note that individually, plant foods aren’t considered ‘complete’ proteins, because most don’t contain the nine essential amino acids. For this reason, I recommend consuming a combination of protein-rich foods such as legumes, beans, quinoa, seeds, nuts and pea or rice protein. Increase your iron levels by consuming dark leafy greens, lentils, tahini and nuts.
There are so many delicious, flavoursome ways to finish off a plant-based meal. I love adding some hummus, a drizzle of tahini or a handful of nuts and seeds. Oh, and a squeezed of lemon add a nice tang and is great for digestion.
Eating the rainbow is a sure-fire way of ensuring you get a wide range of nutrients and minerals – essential in living the healthy life! This bowl has all my favourite things: curry roasted cauliflower, sesame carrot chips and sautéed greens.
