Episode Summary

In this episode I talk about the most common mistakes I see when people are starting to eat more plant based. I share my experiences with making these same mistakes along with tips for how you can avoid them!

Trigger Warning:  this episode does mention diet culture, restriction, and fad diets. So if you find that triggering please proceed with caution and bail out if you need to. 

Key Takeaways

There are 3 common mistakes that I myself have experience and what I see when folks are starting plant based eating; They don’t swap out proteins, they under eat, and they don’t get enough variety with their meals and plant foods. 

Check in with yourself  to see if this is happening to you as you’re making the switch. 

If you would find it helpful, set up some guidelines for yourself, for example, getting in so many different varieties of plant foods each day or each week. 

Maybe you want a smoothie or a salad each day? 

Give yourself some markers to hit and a way to keep track of that. So you can see the progress you’re making!
