Vegan Diet - All You Need To Know
A vegan diet is linked with improved insulin regulation and energy levels, meaning you’re less likely to feel an afternoon slump or reach into your snack box. Take a few minutes to learn about the benefits of a vegan diet with Vinita Contractor, a holistic health and nutrition coach.
From grilled tofu to quinoa and spinach salad, people are going vegan globally. With vegetables, fruits, legumes, seeds, nuts, oils and botanicals, a vegan diet excludes all forms of animal exploitation or cruelty, defines The Vegan Society. “Besides, people do understand the health benefits of a vegan diet, such as the reversal of chronic lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol,” says Vinita Contractor, holistic health and nutrition coach, during one of her live sessions with URlife. There’s even evidence to suggest that a vegan diet could help manage PCOS condition and thyroid levels, says Vinita.
When asked, “But where do you get your protein?” She goes on to suggest multiple options including peanuts, buckwheat, amarnath, broccoli, green peas, and soya milk. She also explains how loading up on fruits and vegetables benefits gut health.
