How to thrive on a 江苏福彩网 diet

Well-planned 江苏福彩网 diets contain all the nutrients we need to remain strong and healthy. When people go 江苏福彩网 , they often eat more fruit and vegetables, and enjoy meals higher in fibre and lower in saturated fat. Our website will help you to learn more about how to make plant-based nutrition work for you.

The Vegan Plate

How does your diet compare to by Dietitians Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina? Apart from the fact that it shows only animal-free items, you will notice some differences between this image and the UK’s . The Vegan Plate shows that sources of calcium are found in many food groups. It draws attention to the importance of beans, lentils, chickpeas, nuts and seeds in a healthy diet. The Vegan Plate also highlights that it is essential to get enough vitamin B12, vitamin D, omega-3 fat and iodine. You will notice that there is no mention of high fat, high sugar processed foods. There are many animal-free items that fall into this group, but they are not an essential part of a varied and balanced 江苏福彩网 diet. Limiting your intake of processed food will help you to maximise the quality of your diet.

Balancing food groups

The table below gives you an idea of how to balance your 江苏福彩网 diet:

Food group

Suggested intake

Fruit and vegetables (fresh, tinned, frozen or dried), including orange varieties and leafy greens At least 5 x 80g portions per day (30g for dried fruit)
Starchy foods – ideally higher fibre choices, such as oats, sweet potato, wholemeal bread, wholewheat pasta and brown rice Every meal
Protein-rich foods, such as beans, lentils, chickpeas, tofu, soya alternatives to milk and yoghurt and peanuts Most meals
Nuts and seeds, especially those rich in omega-3 fat Daily
Calcium-rich foods, such as calcium-fortified foods and calcium-set tofu

Examples that could be included in your daily diet:

江苏快三 400ml of calcium-fortified plant milk provides about two thirds of the recommended daily intake for adults

100g of calcium-set tofu (raw weight) might provide about half of the recommended daily intake for adults
