Why plant-based eating is easier than you think…

 

Get creative in the kitchen

Unsure of what to cook? Think of your favourite meals and replace the animal products (such as cream, fish or meat) with vegan alternatives. From vegan cheese and eggless mayo to soya yogurt and coconut-based ice creams, there’s almost an alternative for everything. Here at Flava – we make it even easier for you – choose from our fresh or frozen menu here. 

 

Be flexible

People turn to a vegan diet for various ethical, environmental and health reasons. Whatever your reason, the important thing to remember is that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. You don’t have to go completely vegan, especially as more people tend to eat a ‘flexitarian’ diet, meaning that you eat mostly plant-based, with occasional meat, dairy and egg products.

 

Change your mindset 

Do you feel a plate of food is not complete without meat? We’re so conditioned into thinking an animal protein is the main component of a dish and the rest are all sides. Try to lose the mentality that meat is the hero on the plate. 

 

Do your research

You might be missing your favourite meal, but there could be a vegan version out there. At Flava we’re constantly updating our menu with plant-based options, and as demand for these types of meals grows, so does our menu. So make sure you are checking our menu regularly.

 

Remember, don’t worry if you slip up – it happens! Eating plant-based is definitely easier than you think, so why not give it a go!
