Did you used to write on your hand to remember stuff when you were younger? Or do you perhaps still do that now?
Congratulations if you are staring the 4 week meal guide lifestyle change today.
One of the biggest challenges you might encounter is eliminating processed foods all together. By doing this you will be avoiding high-inflammatory oils, preservatives, thickeners, artificial colours and flavours plus excess sugars and salt that may be used in the processed food. Cut these out and you give your body a better chance to heal, feel great and lose weight if that is your goal.
We thought it might help to write a secret code on your hand to remind you each time you go to eat (if you are ok with writing on your hand lol). This secret code can serve as a reminder not only to keep off the processed foods, but also to prepare and be ready with the right foods for snacks and meals. There are plenty of hints and tips in the 'Vegansie Me Now' to help you with this.
Grab a pen or texta and write these 6 letters on your hand or forearm. Somewhere visible so when you are eating you see them.
VMN = Veganise Me Now
NPF = No Processed Food
Here are some common foods and great ways to substitute them on your new journey:
Corn chips or other packet crackers - 'Sweet Potato Flat Bread' (recipe on page 47 of your 'Veganiseme Me Now' book)
Bread - Authentic Sourdough Bread or flat pressed Sweet potato or potato slices
Pasta - Rice
Milk alternatives - Check your ingredients and avoid high inflammatory oils and thickeners. Making your own is best. See page 92 of your 'Veganise Me Now' book.
Packet chips and crisps - Home made 'Pop Corn' recipe on page 81 of your 'Veganise Me Now' book.
Feel free to email us or contact us via our Facebook page if you have any foods that you need ideas with substituting. We are here to help and love hearing from you.
