Eating Healthy Vegan

Lizzie asks…

Vegan=Healthy?

Just because the food is vegan, does it mean that it is healthy??
Enlighten me..

yummy answers:

Any diet is healthy or unhealthy depending on how you eat. If you eat a bunch of junk food, you will be unhealthy. You can eat vegan cupcakes, vegan donuts, potato chips oreos.
All = not healthy to eat a bunch of :)

Vegans (and non-vegans) should be eating a variety of foods.

This is the Vegan Food Pyramid. It helps you figure out how much of what to eat.

It does not take a vegan rocket scientist to be healthy. Some people who are lacking in veggie knowledge will say you are lacking in proteins and calcium etc. This is false. Your veggies etc. Contain all you need. Sprinkle some nutritional yeast to your foods and you also get your B vitamins. I have heard about nutritional yeast for a while, and finally bought some.
