Eat whole plant foods

Eat a wide variety of whole plants foods.They are full of fiber, water, and nutrients. They will make you feel full and provide you with a wide range of macronutrients as well.

Supplement properly

Plan to add vitamins b12, d3, k2, omega 3, and iodine. I recommend a supplement that has all of them such as Complement or Wholier.

Move your body

Move in a safe and enjoyable way – aim for 10,000 steps per day. Examples of fun movement that aren’t on a cardio machine. Walk, play with your dog, hike, dance, clean, park away from entrances, take the stairs.

Eat Carbohydrates

Don’t fear carbs! They are amazing fuel for your body and brain. Especially whole carbohydrates like grains, beans, potatoes, and even whole grain bread. If you love bread, then eat the bread- just be mindful of how much. It’s helpful to enjoy higher calorie carbohydrates with low calorie density foods like vegetables so you can fill up on other nutritious foods with it. 

Eat Plant Proteins

Beans, lentils, whole grains, and soy to reach your plant protein intake. If you are worried about not getting enough, add in a protein supplement to get an extra 10-20 grams easily.

Healthy vegan meal prep

Plan Everything

Your workouts, your food, your meditation, and what you want your day to look like. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Prepare by planning the details and putting it in your schedule just like anything else.
