A. No problem. You can swap the meal out with another meal, or, you could choose a more desirable (and suitable) ingredient from one of the other recipes.
Q. Do portion sizes matter in this plan?
A. Yes! Some meals and snacks within this plan contain multiple servings per recipe. It is important to be mindful of the serving size to optimize results. Consuming more than a single serving in one meal and/or snack is ok, as long as you refrain from indulging in multiple servings for every meal and snack which may result in weight gain.
Q. Is this a keto-vegan diet?
A. No, it is not - some of the recipes include beans and other legumes as a source of protein.
Q. What if I am hungry?
A. If you are hungry, you can try consuming a glass of water between meals and snacks. You can also add psyllium husk fibre or chia seeds to enhance feelings of fullness. Recommended snacks that have very few calories but may help reduce hunger include: cucumbers, leafy green vegetables, celery, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, and mushrooms.
Q. I have recently become a vegan but I am experiencing bloating, gas, or other digestive problems - what should I do?
A. One of the biggest differences between a carnivorous and a plant based diet (besides the amount of animal products, of course) is the amount of fiber you will consume. Whole foods generally contain a lot more fiber than processed foods (some of which are completely vacant of fiber), and although a healthy amount of fiber is very good for your digestion, your body might need some time to adjust.
In this adjustment period, you can ease the road by soaking your beans overnight before cooking them and make sure to never under-cook the beans, they should really be soft! It will also help to slow down your pace while eating and to eat more frequently in smaller portions instead of huge plates in just two or three sittings.
Q. Can I skip the mid and after noon snacks?
A. Yes - you may skip these snacks, however it is recommended that you eat scheduled snacks to prevent overeating at subsequent meals and to establish a routine. It will also provide your body with additional nutrients.
Q. Can I eat last night's left over dinner for lunch the next day?
A. Yes, you can. Tip: Preparing meals ahead of time is a sure way to stay on track the following day(s)!
