I just felt really inspired by all the expensive vegan junk food at whole foods.
I made some chai tea popsicles. I heated up some unsweetened soy milk with some chai tea and coconut sugar, let it cool down, and pored it into the popsicle mold et voila! Magnifique!
I’ve been really into this ginger apple cider lately. It’s Martinelli’s apple juice (gotta get the good stuff) fresh minced ginger, and lemon juice!
Carob date oatmeal! This is super easy, just blend up some dates and add them to your oat meal along with some carob powder!
I really like raw foodism, and raw til four, but for some people those lifestyles are a little extreme. So I came up with some alternative vegan diets for people who want a healthy vegan diet, but don’t wan’t to be raw foodists (yet). I made these diets up also because there aren’t any healthy vegan diet plans between raw foodism and junk food vegans. These plans are primarily designed to be moderate eating plans to keep new vegans away from vegan junk food and processed foods.
My first vegan diet is whole food veganism. The basic idea here is to only eat foods in there whole state. However, the aim is also to be flexible and not get too caught up in eating a “pure” diet so for instance if you buy a can of coconut milk and it has xanthan gum and natural flavors that doesn’t really matter, and if you want some ketchup with your fries that’s okay too! To get the best results from this diet I recommend a low fat high carb diet with 0-200 calories coming from overt fats.
(p.s.vegan tip: with natural flavors the best thing to do is just look at the allergy information to see if they are sourced from dairy or eggs)

My next diet idea is a little more flexible than Whole food veganism. I call it no faux veganism, because it is a form veganism that ommits vegan specialty items, vegan substitutions, and junk food. I came up for this idea after reading an article about a woman who became vegan and started eating junk food, which she used to never eat, like candy bars and moon pies just because they were vegan. I also just generally despise vegan substitutions like vegan cheese, and seitan. I think the golden rule for this diet is “if you can’t buy it at a normal grocery store then don’t buy it” most vegan specialty foods are over processed junk food that should be avoided. This diet is for the vegan that wants to eat healthy, but doesn’t want to give up quite all of their processed foods. (p.s.this is still mean’t to be a low fat high carb diet)
