This vegan food list is what I like to eat when focused on health and healing my body. Eating from this list gives me more energy, clarity, and helps to shed weight effortlessly. It's important to make sure you get enough calories when eating a whole foods vegan diet. I like to use Cronometer.com to track my nutrients and caloric intake.
Even though Botanists classify some fruits as vegetables, Fruits as Flowers/Flower Buds, and Herbs as Greens, my list is what I have known fruits and vegetables to be growing up. Actually, growing up I would have told you tomatoes, zucchini, squash, and cucumbers were vegetables, but it’s been a while since I found out they are fruits. The classification doesn’t matter much to me. Proper food combining for optimal digestion is more important.
Sweet fruits are usually eaten whole as mono meals or in smoothies mixed with greens. On occasion I will have a bowl of fruit with chopped nuts sprinkled on top. I also enjoy salads with large amounts of lettuce and greens tossed with few other items. When I eat from the veggie list it will be snacking on broccoli and carrots or chopped into salads. I’m not big on elaborate recipes, but will sometimes make a dip using avocado and cut carrots, jicama, and sweet bell peppers for dipping. Sometimes I enjoy a stir-fry eaten with rice.
My moderation list is food I do not want to overeat because of fat content, or because they are dried and don’t feel all that great in my body. I do enjoy juicing, but usually juice when doing a juice fast, or cleanse.
There are so many more fruits and veggies I have yet to discover, and some I may have overlooked for this list.
Check back often for updates.
