New to Veganism: Simple Swaps for Vegan Alternatives
If you're looking to make a positive change in your diet and reduce your carbon footprint, switching to a vegan lifestyle is a great step in the right direction. One of the easiest ways to do this is to swap out non-vegan products for their plant-based alternatives. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of making these swaps and provide some examples of vegan products you can try.
Firstly, reducing your consumption of animal products can have a positive impact on the environment. Animal agriculture is a leading cause of deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, and water pollution. By choosing plant-based alternatives, you can help reduce the demand for animal products and support a more sustainable food system.
Secondly, choosing vegan products can have benefits for your health. Plant-based products are typically lower in saturated fats and higher in fiber and other essential nutrients. This can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
So, what products can you swap for their vegan alternatives? Here are some examples:
- Dairy Milk for Almond Milk / Soya Milk
- Egg (for cooking or baking) for Flaxseeds (or Chia) - read our previous article on how to prepare this!
- Butter (for cooking or baking) for Coconut Oil
- Sour Cream for Silken Tofu
- Scrambled egg for Tofu
- Honey for Agave Syrup
- Cream (for cooking or baking) for Coconut Milk
- Mayonnaise for Mashed Avocado
