Being a well-nourished vegan, or even vegetarian, is not always an easy job. In general, if you choose to cut out meat and/or dairy from your diet, you need to have a solid awareness of your nutritional needs and how to satisfy them.
So, where to get your protein, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, essential fatty acids, etc.? Enter your local health food store and you may be lucky enough to discover a wide range of superfoods that provide you with everything your body needs to thrive in our temperate and often cold climate. You only need a small amount of these superfoods to satisfy the nutritional needs of the body.
We have all heard of detoxing. And whilst this is a huge part of what superfoods are about, it’s not all. We need to build and nourish as well as detox, and protein-rich superfoods such as hemp, gojis, bee pollen and chlorella can help you to keep your energy sustained as they repair and build your body.
Strengthening the immune system is another useful function, especially as Winter approaches. Conventional farming methods can deplete the minerals in soil, but organic superfoods can replenish us and allow us to adapt to our chosen lifestyle, whether its a fast-paced city job, busy family and social life, or a demanding gym or training regime.
