I've been quite overwhelmed trying to prepare for this. There's still a lot to learn. My biggest concern is how to ensure we don't get deficient in anything. I've been reading about nutrients needed on a plant-based. diet. Many medical professionals recommend supplementing with nutrients such as B12, Omega 3 Fatty Acids and possibly Calcium . It's reassuring to know that doctors like Andrew Weil,, Sanjay Gupta and Mehmet Oz approve of vegan diets.
I've been gradually transitioning to a plant-based diet by changing one meal a day. My husband on the other hand prefers an all or nothing approach and wants to start this fully in a few days. Now I just need to find recipes for nutrient rich meals that we will love.
My search led me to a couple of Borders book stores that are closing down. But all their recipe books had already sold out. Instead I walked out with a pile of books I hadn't planned on buying!!!
Feeling tired now because I've been up for hours looking at websites such as the www.engine2diet.com, www.happyherbivore.com and www.fatfree.com. I finally found many suitable recipes. Just don't know where to begin because they all sound delicious, especially the desserts!
Now for some sleep...
