Alicia has been at least a vegetarian for over 10 years and is the other of The Kind Diet in which she shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin, off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion.

Here of some of Alicia’s nutrition tips:

  1. As your body adjusts to the new sense of fullness and satisfaction from plant-based foods, eat hearty protein dishes, especially those containing tempeh or seitan and prepared with generous amounts of seasoning. This will help your body recognize a new type of fullness and satisfaction that isn’t doing damage to it.
  2. Whole grains are your new best friend and will be an essential part of your daily diet—ideally at every meal. These amazing little seeds are literally full of life and contain a pure, essential energy that we don’t get from most other foods. Grains will keep you balanced, centered, energized, and focused.
  3. No matter where you’re at in life or on this journey, you are sure to encounter a few bumps in the road.  Don’t worry!  This is normal.  We can all support each other on this passage to healthier and happier living. Don’t forget to use the Kickstart message board when you have a question or need support.
  4. Sometimes we think about food because we’re bored or just stuck in a habit. As you make these big changes in your eating, it’s helpful to have a few activities up your sleeve to give you satisfaction: calling a friend, walking your dog, taking a bath, or reading more about this lifestyle can help occupy a wandering mind.
  5. When planning meals, re-create dishes you love, like spaghetti with meat sauce or your favorite Chinese dish, with new ingredients. Use a sauce you love on meat (like a barbecue or teriyaki) and serve it over rice, seitan, or vegetables. You may love it!
  6. Short on time? Soups are great for quick meals because you can empty the fridge into a leftover soup! Start with water or a good vegetable stock, then add grain or sweet potatoes or beans and any vegetables you haven’t gotten around to using. Eat with a slice of toast. Quick, yummy, and satisfying.

Because I, myself,  gave up meat, diary, and eggs last May (I still eat fish, however), I can certainly attest to Alicia’s health claims.  Tell us about your goals and/or successes of a healthier lifestyle.
