Protein and calcium are never a concern on a vegan diet because there are many excellent sources from legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and even fruits and vegetables. The bonus is that plant foods are voluptuously packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that protect us from the typical chronic ailments like heart disease, diabetes, digestive conditions, acid reflux, and even some cancers.
Vegans enjoy a healthy diet and find it an ideal pathway to weight loss. It’s easy to take off pounds and keep them off because plant foods are so low in calories and fat, yet high in needed nutrients. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds are the staples of the diet.
