In my first ever podcast episode, I talk about how dropping the perfectionism around our vegan diets actually makes us (and our kids!) healthier eaters in the long run.
Where Does the Perfectionism Belief Come From?
There is a strong underlying belief in the vegan world that we have to eat perfectly to be healthy. This comes from 2 areas.
Firstly, the Meat and Dairy Industry works incredibly hard to spread the belief that we can’t get the nutrients we need without meat and dairy.
And then many of the Vegan Diet Influencers (including doctors and dietitians) post recipes and food pics with meals brimming with legumes, veggies and wholegrains, making us feel that the only way to be healthy on a vegan diet is to eat those foods.
But I’m here to tell you, there is another way. In fact, if you work on making small tweaks over time, you’ll end up eating healthier overall than if you try to eat “perfectly” from the start.
In this episode, I talk about 3 ways that small changes to your diet will result in everyone eating much healthier in the long run.
