Have you de­cided to be a ve­gan but won­der­ing how to start? Tran­si­tion­ing to a ve­gan life­style may seem daunt­ing at first, but it is a lot eas­ier than we think. The first and the most vi­tal step is to fa­mil­iarise your­self with food. One ex­tremely ver­sa­tile in­gre­di­ent to add to your ve­gan diet is through 100% pure maple syrup from Canada. Not only can you sub­sti­tute re­fined sugar or honey with pure maple syrup in your desserts, but you can also eas­ily in­cor­po­rate it into savoury dishes, too, giv­ing it a nu­tri­tional twist. Yes, that’s right, the fact that pure maple syrup is un­pro­cessed, helps it re­tain all the an­tiox­i­dant mol­e­cules that the tree pro­duces to pro­tect it­self in its wild en­vi­ron­ment.

A well-balanced, ve­gan diet helps you gain the nu­tri­ents re­quired to main­tain a healthy life­style. For some­one fol­low­ing a plant-based diet, in­take of ad­e­quate amount of pro­tein and cal­cium be­comes es­sen­tial. In­crease your in­take of nuts like al­monds to meet your pro­tein re­quire­ments. For cal­cium, by just in­cor­po­rat­ing a 60ml serv­ing of pure maple syrup, you will not only meet 5% your daily needs of cal­cium and potas­sium but also 37% of ri­boflavin, 18% of zinc, 7% of mag­ne­sium and 100% of man­ganese ac­cord­ing to a study by Cana­dian Nutri­ent File (Health Canada).You can also in­clude foods like soy milk, ce­re­als, and tofu to bal­ance your cal­cium re­quire­ment.

At times, you may think that re­ly­ing on con­ve­nient, and pro­cessed foods will be help­ful while turn­ing ve­gan. Be­ware! While they may be high in pro­tein, de­li­cious and fa­mil­iar, they may also con­tain high amounts of sodium and sugar, which make them un­fit for con­sump­tion. Opt for a health­ier ap­proach by in­clud­ing some easy-to-makeat-home ve­gan snack such as maple-roasted-al­monds that can be your saviour when hunger strikes! They are de­li­cious and healthy.

Since nu­mer­ous po­ten­tially ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances have been found in pure maple syrup, it is good for ev­ery­one and not just ve­g­ans. For more ve­gan recipes, log onto www.
