Did you know that just by switching a few everyday foods to a plant based substitute you can lose weight without really trying!?
I was blown away by how much fat I lost when I switched to a plant based lifestyle. I honestly wasn't even trying to lose weight. I was so focused on avoiding meat and dairy that I was not concerned about losing weight or "counting calories" at that moment. Within the first week I noticed that I lost like 3-4 pounds. I couldn't believe it especially since I was eating so much more than ever before. My sudden diet change made me very hungry.
You do not have to be vegan or vegetarian to consume plant based products.
In the long run, consuming plant based options will help you lose weight due to the decrease in calories, fat, trans fat, saturated fats and cholesterol. You will also find yourself with more energy. It's a win win situation and so good for your health.
Listed below are a few plant based substitutes for everyday product that you can start using.
Almond or Soy milk
I use both, the almond milk is great for cereals and smoothies. The soy milk is great for meal recipes and desserts that require milk since the consistency of the soy milk is a bit thicker than the almond milk.
Almond or Soy coffee creamer
|Gardein is a very yummy brand of plant based meat substitutes. You can check out their website and search for Gardein products near you.|
Tofu is a great alternative to scrambled eggs and can be cook in so many ways.
