  1. Great explanation. The top 10 foods aren't specific to vegans. They are a firm staple of the entire fitness industry.

  2. i wonder, since vegans do not consume animal food, how do they prevent vitamin b12 deficiency? i'm not a vegetarian and i'm suffering from megaloblastic anemia from B12 deficiency already.

  3. Having a good digestive cycle can really be good for your system. This diet can really help in speeding up your metabolism.

  4. I'm not sure if I can ever survive being a vegan because meat is something that I can never give up. I can give up rice but never meat, lol. These are very interesting facts. I didn't know they were prone to constipation.

  5. I've never tried soy milk. I hate regular milk so much that I"m scared to try it, silly, I know.

  6. Avocado is in season and I practically eat avocado everyday these days. I enjoy eating it and I am glad to read that it has a lot of health benefits.

  7. Nice list...I love these items and have them regularly! Healthy and Tasty both.

  8. I love, love, love all your 10 suggested vegan food! I enjoy eating veggies and fruits because of their various textures and flavours :)

  9. I have tried being vegan once but sad to say, I failed. lol Not really that it's hard it's just that meat are tempting. BUt I consume veges a lot and fruits if I may add!

  10. I tried doing vegan-diet, the constant conscious-ness to select my daily food and having to reject what my mum cook for dinner made it hard for me to continue.

  11. Great meal to have vegan-diet.. It's healthy... Great 10 suggestions, more options to eat

  12. Ooooh! All my favourite foods! I think it's difficult for me to go vegan though because I'd be missing a lot of flavour. And in Sweden where they have milk and cheese most of the time, it's difficult to sustain a vegan diet.

  13. Thanks for sharing the food list, I am going to start eat clean because I need to be physically ready for my upcoming marathon.
