Forget everything you have heard…

…about veganism. For some reason, it has a bad rap. People rather buy into expensive fad diets than try out the vegan lifestyle due to some common myths.

One of the most common misconceptions surrounding vegan dishes is that they lack the robust and complex flavors that are present in meat and dairy meals and that they are extremely bland. This is by far not the case! The most delicious meals that I have had in my life were completely free of any animal products (and with the added benefit of feeling amazing after consuming it!). With the simple addition of fresh produce and the right herbs, any vegan dish can be an explosion of natural flavors. Vegan One Pot PAsta-Recipe on Pinterest http://www.crazyvegankitchen.com/vegan-one-pot-pasta-for-lazy-kents/

Any of your favorite meat and dairy dishes can easily be converted into a healthy, vegan meal that is supplying your body with all the nutrients that it needs and none of the saturated fats and cholesterol that it doesn’t.

These foods are packed with plant nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants along with healthy fats, carbohydrates, and yes PROTEINS, to keep your body fueled and energized throughout the day. These dishes are jam packed with plant proteins, contrary to popular belief. You can get all the vitamins, proteins and fats you need on a plant-based diet.

As you can see, vegan food can be delicious AND healthy! You can eat more than just salads and smoothies. You can have pizza, burgers and ice cream and still lose weight and heal your body. These recipes are all plant based and boast multiple health benefits. Obviously, it’s best to have everything in moderation but since these foods are all plant based and naturally low in bad fats, they are perfectly fine to consume and still lose weight.

So now you’re wondering what this is gonna cost you. It looks too good to be true, right? Wrong! It is a completely misconceived notion that a vegan diet costs you too much money and time. I actually have saved money on this lifestyle. A majority of these recipes have minimal ingredients, most of which are common pantry staples and take less than an hour to prepare and cook (which is less time than it takes to cook just cook most meat dishes)!
