Even if I’m not vegan, I sometimes like taking a one-day break from animal proteins to allow for a reset. However, one of the downsides of veganism is that is almost impossible to get all the nutrients that the body needs to work efficiently through food only. Indeed, a long-term vegan diet must be supplemented with additional vitamins and minerals.

I studied this vegan menu carefully selecting foods and food combos to provide the most possible macronutrients and essential micronutrients, including vitamin B12 and all the essential amino acids (which must be usually supplemented in the case of veganism).  


Sweet Potato Toasts

  • 1 small sweet potato – Slice the potato lengthwise and bake at 200 C (400F) for approx. 15-20 minutes. 


Toppings – Choose one of the following:
