Vegan Recipes: A Good Way to Get Your Veggies

We’ve all heard the message “Eat more fruits and vegetables!”. And in theory, a vegan diet should help you accomplish this important goal.

But often, vegan recipes are centered around high glycemic grains that can leave you as doughy as that soy cheese pizza.

Vegan Recipes… Done Right

But you can avoid the “Buddha belly” (and the associated risk of high blood sugar, diabetes, heart disease and cancer) if you focus your vegan recipes on wholesome, nutrient-packed vegetables, low glycemic, antioxidant rich legumes, protein-rich sea veggies and slow-burning fruits (like berries, apples and pears).

What Are Vegan Recipes?

Here are the specific criteria that make a recipe a “Vegan Recipe” at Healing Gourmet:

  • No Red Meat
  • No Pork
  • No Eggs
  • No Honey
  • No Dairy
  • No Fish
  • No Shellfish
  • No Poultry

Nutrient Deficiencies in Vegan Recipes

Along with being high in sugar and carbs – which can send your body into a metabolic tailspin – poorly planned vegan diets can also cause a number of nutrient deficiencies including:

  • Protein
  • Iron
  • Vitamin B12
  • Calcium
  • Zinc
  • Iodine
  • Coenzyme Q10
  • EPA/DHA
  • Selenium
  • Vitamin D

With some planning, close nutritional monitoring and smart supplementing, you can overcome these challenges and enjoy an abundance of vegan recipes that are both healthy and low glycemic.
