The Abundant Vegan Diet



Many people go into veganism worried about all the things they’ll be giving up. But a vegan diet can be the most varied, abundant diet you’ve ever had, with none of your old favorite foods missing. These days, there’s a substitute to be had for everything. And we mean everything!

Lots of people also dive into veganism by removing the animal products from their diet and eating whatever is left. That’s a sure-fire way to get lackluster meals and hungry vegans!

In reality, for a lot of people, going vegan means discovering a whole new way of cooking and eating. An abundance of new ingredients, spices, and methods of cooking awaits! There are over 20,000 species of edible plants for you to discover and enjoy, so follow your curiosity and start looking for delicious legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, and mushrooms to enrich your kitchen and diet.

If you’re still wondering where to start, check out this sample meal plan from our dietitians, and see just how varied the meals are. You can replace what you used to eat with a similar product – swap your old burger for a bean burger or Beyond burger, for example, or you can use this opportunity as a jumping-off point to expand your palate.

Don’t like many vegetables yet? Try sautéing your veggies with your favorite spice mix, or adding them to stir-fries. Soup is another great place to hide any vegetables you aren’t too keen on. This works especially well for cream soups and we can guarantee that you won’t be able to taste that broccoli, zucchini, or spinach.

Tofu can be a healthy and versatile part of your diet, so make sure you check out our Tofu Guide, so you will be able to enjoy delightfully tasty tofu every time.
