4 Things You Should Know Before Going Vegan

by Mustin India on February 24, 2022

Do you want to go Vegan but are hesitant? Have a lot of doubts in mind? Don’t exactly know what all you could eat and more importantly the ones you can’t? Are your friends telling you that you would not be able to survive with a Vegan diet? Are you thinking about your favourite dishes that you would have to leave? 

If these are some of the questions that are coming to your mind, then stop thinking and keep reading this blog to get answers for all of these. 

The above-mentioned questions and concerns are bound to come to your mind. But we are going to clear your doubts and remove any kind of inhibitions related to a Vegan diet and lifestyle. 

Let’s get started - 

1. Vegan food is not expensive! 

You might have been told this but it is actually not. In fact, a Vegan diet is actually quite affordable. Whether we talk about Fruits, Vegetables or Seeds, and Nuts, Lentils, or Plant-based milk. All of this is quite affordable. And If you are planning to save some money this month then you should totally avoid packed food that advertises itself to be Vegan. Stick to natural food and you will save big bucks. 

2. How to get protein? 

If the stress of getting sufficient amounts of Protein stops you from going Vegan, then let us present some facts before you.  

A Plant-based diet provides all the essential protein that is required by a person. In fact, the building blocks of Protein known as Amino Acid are found in good quantities in Beans, Lentils, Chickpeas, Soya Products, Peanut Butter, Nuts, and Seeds. 

If you are looking for Peanut butter that is natural, healthy and most importantly Vegan, then you should check out Mustin’s Classic Peanut Butter in Creamy and Chunky variants. These will not only provide sufficient quantities of protein but will also become a good snacking option. 

3. Will I have to take supplements - Vitamin B12, Iron, and Calcium? 

The answer to this question is a straight NO! You don't need any kind of supplements. All of the nutrients, including complex nutrients like Vitamin B12 and Iron, are already present in Vegan food items like Nutritional yeast, Mushrooms, cereals, etc. Iron is present in large quantities in Legumes, Sunflower Seeds, Dried Raisins, and dark, leafy Greens. Calcium will be taken care of by Broccoli, Chickpeas, Tofu, Spinach and Cabbage, and Almonds. 

4. Does being Vegan mean I will be on a diet for my entire life? 

Following a vegan diet does not mean that you will be on a diet. It does not also mean that you will start losing weight and it will become difficult for you to maintain your weight. Vegan food provides all the calories and minerals+vitamins to maintain your weight. You can indulge in all forms of snacks that you have been eating before adopting this lifestyle. The only difference is that all of these snacks will now be Vegan. 

We hope that this information was helpful. If it was, then be confident in your decision and adopt Vegan confidently and happily.
