Hi, Amanda. I think that virtually all vegan dietitians would advise that it is best to center our diets around whole foods (such as beans) rather than processed foods (such as faux meats). While the faux meats can be a tasty treat occasionally, having them once or twice a week would be far better than having them daily. Also, when you overindulge on a particular food, you have a greater chance of developing a sensitivity to it. Rotating the foods you eat (for example, not eating the same bean or nut or grain every day) helps to prevent this and also gives you more variety in terms of nutrition (not all beans, nuts, and grains are equal in terms of the nutrients they provide). Be sure you are also including plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. It's better to center your diet on those than on processed foods.
