Hello my lovelies! My life recently have been a roller-coaster I have had to think about important choices and like I mentioned in my previous blog I have had issues due to work related stress and unfortunately I thought I could handle more than I could and it broke me down. I am now taking time for me, what I want to honestly do. It's just unfortunate that it had to unravel itself this way but I am happy I found myself here I id after all begin this journey because I wanted what was best for myself and my health really have been eye opening. Spending my time on my blog and my health gives me peace I truly feel like I have found home with this journey and I thank you all for following along.

Also wanted to update you all on what to consider while transitioning into a vegan and/or vegetarian diet. It's all about eating a versatile diet vegetables, fruits, beans, peas, lentils, grain, bread, pasta, rice, nuts and seeds. A versatile diet is meant that you eat varied, of the different foods mentioned above as they contain much of the nutrition we need nutrition, such as carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals.


Some of the things to keep in mind is iron, calcium and vitamin B-12 as they are difficult to gain in a vegan diet a dietary supplement is ideal. Do keep in mind I am don't have a degree as a nutritionist I have simply gathered this information myself along with check ups with my doctor and I suggest you do the same.


Fat

Fat is included in the cell membranes and is essential for our survival it is need in small amounts. It is very important to get fatty acids such as omega 3, omega 6 and omega 6 is abundant in corn oil, sesame seeds, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil and soybean oil. Omega 3 you can find in rapeseed oil, flaxseed oil, algae and walnuts.


Protein

It's need build and repair the body's cells it is made up of different amino acids and eight of these are vital which is why it's important to vary your diet so that you get enough of the different amino acids. You can find protein-rich vegetables such as rye, oats, wheat, beans, peas, lentils, nuts, seeds and grains. Soybean is rich in protein.


Carbohydrates

It's our most important energy source and divided into sugar, starch and fibre. Fibres are good for many things such as it gives greater satiety, increases saliva secretion and counteracts constipation. Starch which provides the most important energy and can be found in legumes, nuts, seeds and potatoes.


Vitamins

They are of course important for various things and I have added many different sources for these which you can find here, the ones to keep in mind are:

Vitamin A is important for skin, mucous membranes, night vision, growth and resistance to infections.

Vitamin D is needed for us to be able to use calcium and phosphor, good for bone formation and teeth.

Vitamin E protects unsaturated fatty acids from oxidizing and protecting against cancer.

Also improves blood circulation and resistance to diseases.

Vitamin K is necessary for the blood's coagulation ability.

Vitamin C is important for the body's immune system, for connective tissue, skin,

skeleton, teeth, blood vessels, resistance and for wound healing

Vitamin B They are important for the nerves, muscles, skin, hair and intestines. They also help with the subject and nutritional turnover.


Minerals

Calcium is important for building skeletons and teeth.

Iron is needed to transport oxygen in the body.

Iodine is needed for thyroid hormones and a normal metabolism.

Zinc is important for the function of many enzymes,form bones, nails,hair and speed up wound healing.

Selenium prevents cell damage, counteracts the harmful effects of heavy metals and increases resistance to infections.
