Everything You Need to Know to Start a Plant-Based Diet!

Ever wanted to eat a more plant-based diet, but just didn’t know where to start?

I feel you. When I first decided to go vegan over 10 years ago, I had no clue where to get started. I was lucky enough to have some friends who were already eating this way to guide me and give me some meal ideas to get started. Did I get it right straight away? Nope. I made lots of mistakes on my plant-based journey, but I learnt from them and was able to make further improvements to my diet along the way.

Fortunately, in this day and age, plant-based eating and veganism is a lot more mainstream than it was 10 years ago, and there is lots of great information available to those wanting to make the change. However, there is also a lot of misinformation that can be harmful.

This is one of the reasons I became a plant-based health coach - to provide guidance and evidence based information for those who wish to achieve better health and wellbeing on a plant-based diet.

However, I understand not everyone can afford 1-on-1 coaching, which is why I decided to write my book Nourish with Plants. This book was designed to be a simple guide to a whole-foods plant-based diet - the benefits of eating this way, what foods to buy, and how to plan and prepare your meals. I want to provide you with the right tools and knowledge to eat a healthy and abundant plant-based diet without deprivation or stress! Therefore, in this book you will not only find over 50 recipes, but also helpful tips and resources, a meal planner, and shopping list, so that you are best equipped to navigate the world of plant-based eating.

These days there are so many ‘diets’ that promote calorie restriction, time-restricted eating, eliminating carbohydrates, and ‘cleanses’. Let’s face it, everyone wanted results yesterday, so they will jump on any new diet or fad in the hopes of a ‘quick fix’ to their health and weight problems. Unfortunately, a short-term fix does not equate to long-term results and can often even be harmful.
