A healthy and balanced vegan diet includes fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes. Below are some tips to help you shop and plan meals while shopping at Herbal Apothecary.
Protein: legumes, lentils, nuts, seeds and whole grains can provide protein. Vegan yogurt like what we carry from Blode Kuh (pictured) can too. Other popular brands like Rancho Gordo legumes and Lotus rice and grain are carried at our market.
Calcium and Iron: make sure to shop for dark vegetables like kale, broccoli and spinach. Dried beans, peas and whole grains and fruits such as apricots, raisins, prunes, etc. also help with our body’s need for iron.
Zinc and other vitamins: you might also consider nuts, wheat germ and soy-based products for other vitamin needs.
Oils: rather than using canola or corn oil while cooking, consider nut, coconut or avocado oil.
