UNPROCESSED IS BEST
Stay away from processed foods. It’s amazing how many vegans still consume foods that are loaded with preservatives. Surprisingly, some vegan foods have more preservatives and added sodium than non-vegan foods. This is partly due to the fact that the vegan food alternative companies are attempting to make something that is far from meat, taste like meat. And the easiest way to do that is with preservatives and sodium. These preservatives, much like ordinary cooked foods, leave waste products in your body. This can lead to a host of issues that affect metabolism, mood and energy levels, which in turn can contribute or lead to weight gain.
