What do vegans eat you ask?
I, too, was a little concerned when I first started this journey. My daughters were my biggest cheer team and coaches. Without their encouragement, their passion, their willingness to cook new things and introduce them to me I would have succumbed to failure.
I will miss my milk I whined. What will I drink for my calcium needs? The first order of business for me was to be introduced to several, and I mean lots, of different brands and kinds of milk alternatives. It was curious to me how one almond milk brand could be watery and another nice and creamy. Rice milk I likened to very thin pablum. I love pablum so I liked rice milk. There is even a cashew milk and an oatmeal milk. Gone are the days of soy milk as the only alternate milk.
What of the rest of the diet of a vegan? As you read there are lots of choices for milk substitutes that are healthy. Some contain substantial amounts of calcium. Others not so. However, the choice to eat healthily of all things vegan assures a balanced intake of the vitamins, minerals, proteins, omega 3, and amino acids.
But, what do I eat? Vegans have a food pyramid just like the omnivores and it is chock full of choices.
