Vegan Savvy

By Azmina Govindji and Azmina Govindji

Veganism is one of the fastest growing movements across the world. As with any diet, when you change what you eat, you also have to change the way you eat and how you think about food. This is the simple, flexible and nutritionally approved way to make it easier to stick to a vegan diet without compromising on health.

‘As veganism goes mainstream, there is a growing hunger for evidence-based information about vegan diets. Dietitian Azmina offers a wealth of practical tips based on both her professional expertise and personal experience of supporting her daughter’s vegan journey. If you’re enjoying a vegan diet, this book could help you to ensure that your nutrition is on track.’ – The Vegan Society

Vegan Savvy is a simple, flexible and nutritionally approved way to make it easier to stick to a plant-based diet without compromising on your health. “Vegan” doesn’t necessarily mean “healthy” and it’s easy to fall down a rabbit hole of vegan fast food and beans on toast, which could mean you don’t get enough essential nutrients like iodine, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, iron and calcium.

Lack of key nutrients may lead to unwanted symptoms of feeling sluggish or low in energy, looking pale and suffering mood swings. This evidence-based guide offers accessible, visual and practical ways to ensure you are getting enough of the key nutrients without having to swallow handfuls of supplements. Including quick and easy tips and tricks to make plant-based meals that are naturally boosted with nutrient-rich extras, this book is your essential companion to any vegan recipe book, creatively constructed to provide the body with everything it needs.
