It’s easier than what you think
It can be a little daunting to completely switch your eating habits from being meat-heavy to one that is plant-based. Rest assured, some of your favourite meals and snacks are already vegan, like houmous and crudities, curries, soups, and casseroles for example, or if not, they can easily be made with plant-based alternatives. All it takes is a little research and a willingness to make a few swaps and you’ll easily discover that there is plenty of vegan foods to enjoy.
With the launch of two brand new vegan products, it’s easy to start your weight loss journey whilst switching a plant-based diet. Try the LighterLife Fast Vegan Spicy Sweet Potato Soup and the LighterLife Fast Vegan Vanilla Smoothie, the latest additions to the range which also include the LighterLife Fast Banana Porridge and the LighterLife Fast Super Green Soup.
