4. You’re treating yourself inadvertently
Following from the previous point, with food and snacks as a focus of your thoughts, manufacturers have risen to the occasion and provided some tempting plant-based alternatives for vegans.
Great, but more often than not, these are little more than junk food disguised under the healthy vegan banner.
Take vegetables chips for example; these are very high in oil and salt and any nutrients that vegetables started out with have long been eliminated during the cooking and processing trail.
Coconut milk, delicious, creamy and sweet is laden with calories and highly processed, so less nutritive.
Vegan ready meals will contain ‘filler’ ingredients such as refined flour providing little nutrient value.
