The Vegan food pyramid

On the Vegan Food pyramid, you need 10% or less of unhealthy foods. You need 20-40% of seeds, nuts, and avocados. You need 20% or less of whole grains and potatoes. You need 10-40% of fruits, beans, and legumes. Vegetables, 1/2 raw and 1/2 cooked are 30-60% of your daily nutrition. You need the most of vegetables in a day. You want as little as possible of any kind of sugar or refined grain. Refined grains means white bread or any non-whole grain.

  1. Christian, you really have included a lot of information in this blog. I feel like I have learned a lot!How did you learn so much about being a vegan? What are some good books or websites for other people to learn as much as you have learned? Can you tell us some more about some of your favorite foods that you used to like before you were a vegan that are vegan and you can still enjoy them? And can you tell us about some new recipes that you have tried and liked or recipes you would like to try? Also, do you have any advice for others who are thinking about trying to be a vegetarian or vegan but are worried that they might not be able to do it? How do you like being a vegan? Who would you recommend this lifestyle for?
