Hey everyone! Well I am trying to work out a good vegan diet, not one for super fast results of any kind but a sustainable one that I can maybe stick to for a few years at least, so I want to start off slowly. I'll point out now I am 17, I don't know if that should effect the way I eat at all. I do eat a lot of starch and not enough fruit and vegetables, I could not find a relevant thread, if one exists please feel free to link that or even if someone can recommend a good book on the subject, I saw lots out there but I don't know what to trust. Here is what I am thinking, but I am not a nutritionist by any means so if you think I'm making a mistake, I would really appreciate it if someone could jump in. For breakfast, I usually have weet-bix or some other kind of cereal, thinking about switching to porridge though. For Lunch, I am thinking avocado because of its fat content as well as kiwi fruit due to its huge amounts of Vitamin C and awesome taste, as well as an assortment of other vegetables and fruits, either on a sandwich or separate. For dinner, I am thinking soup 3 times a week, seeing as it is just mostly vegetables, but beyond that I don't really know anything else that is light, any suggestions? I'm a capable cook!..kinda.. Thoughts or suggestions, anyone? I am in no real hurry to bulk up, I want to get the nutrition right first. I am hoping that if I have it written down and prepared I won't deviate and fall into bad habits too often. Thanks for reading, guys and girls. Edit/p.s: I am hoping to only eat 3, maximum 4 times a day, I read in another thread smoothies are a good way to quench your hunger so I might give that a try? p.s.s I just saw the "Nutrition Question - Can I see what you typically eat?" thread. I don't know how I missed that but it has all sorts of interesting information, as well.
