My Guide For Healthy Eating
03 . 2019
Reduce or remove foods containing animal products.
Make sure to
carefully as milk solids, eggs and fish sauces are often hidden in many products you think may be vegan.
Reduce consumption of processed oils and fats
such as: butters, margarine, processed/pressed nut or seed soils. (Avocados and wholefood-based oils are acceptable).
Reduce consumption of fried foods and processed foods
that are typically found in packets or wrappers.
is key. If you are eating a varied diet of 100% plant-based whole foods, you will no doubt be easily getting enough fibre by default.
Reduce your intake
of foods containing
artificial ingredients or artificial preservatives.
Be careful of foods with extensive shelf life dates, where possible it is much better to consume fresh foods without anything artificial.
Include a diverse range of foods.
It is important to include a varied range of whole foods as this is closely correlated with the development of diversity in gut microbiome. Eating just before bed and the moment we wake up is engrained by society, try to reduce your eating window to an 8-hour window maximum per day.
Minimise alcohol consumption
. Especially if you are trying to lose weight.
Avoid buying sauces/dressings from the store as they are generally laden with artificial ingredients. Instead
make your own healthy sauces/dressings.
Where possible try and
eat organic only produce
. However, if on a budget, thoroughly
wash non-organic produce
as these typically have a high pesticide count.
Don’t focus on foods you ‘can’t have’
when transitioning, instead
focus on amazing new recipes and flavours
you can play around with and learn to love. Your tastebuds will change. A good book can help with your transition!
Have fun and get creative.
Invite family and friends around for delicious plant-based meals. Visit our recipe section for good introductory meals for your friends and family such as our

(Click Each Recipe to View Full Details).
Focus on habits that improve your gut microbiome.
Eat probiotic rich foods, eat as much organic plants as you can that are free from harmful chemicals/pesticides and get outdoors in the fresh air. The healthy bacteria in your gut is as the centre of how you feel daily and how your body will help prevent chronic disease/cancer over time. A healthy gut bacteria microbiome will be optimal for thriving.
Enjoy this change
. Knowing you’re fuelling yourself without any animal products is truly liberating. Enjoy engaging with new ingredients and flavours and continue to improve the range of meals in your repertoire.
