It means if you will follow this 22 days vegan diet suggestions then you are more likely to develop a healthy eating habit. But before starting this diet plan, you must know that you have to give up your old ways of unhealthy eating and avoid animal based food even dairy and dairy products. the first week is always challenging because you are going to deal with the food cravings but you can win those with your determination.

So here is the meal listing of vegan diet diary day wise.

Day 1

Breakfast – vanilla chia pudding + 1 cup berries

Chia seeds are rich in fibre and omega – 3 along with many vitamins (thiamine, niacin) and minerals (calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous). It controls hunger and keeps you hydrated. Berries are energy boosting fruit which is high in polyphenols and antioxidants.

Lunch – 1 cup steamed or baked sweet potato + crunchy red cabbage and green apple sesame slaw (salad)

Sweet potato is loaded with beta carotene, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Red cabbage has ten times more vitamin A and iron than the green cabbage and its nutritional value increases when it is teamed up with green apple and sesame seeds.

Snack – ¼ cup hemp hummus with fresh veggies such as carrots, celery, bell pepper, romaine leaves etc.

Hemp hummus is a protein dense food and when it is teamed with fresh veggies then its vitamins and minerals percentage instantly increases.

Dinner – black bean and quinoa salad

Quinoa contains various members of vitamin E family such as alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol and flavonoids like quercetin and kaempferol. It is rich in fatty acids especially monounsaturated fatty acids and small percentage of omega – 3 fatty acids and alpha – linolenic acid (ALA).
