Sticking with familiar foods is an easy way to transition to making more and more vegan food choices. Experiment by veganizing your current recipes. You can use our Make the Switch tool to discover easy vegan substitutions.
Most of us have become accustomed to certain tastes and textures in our food. To most people animal products taste good. They may remind you of family and home. Choosing to live vegan doesn’t mean never enjoying those tastes and textures again. Happily, almost every animal product now has a tasty plant-based alternative. You might even find you like some of the vegan versions more than the non-vegan ones!
It's not Hard at all, I always loved eating green and clean food... So I just have to change my grocery shopping a little bit and I'm good to go...
It's important that we all drink lots of water these next few months. But why limit yourself to plain bottled hydration? Take advantage of the luscious fruit in season now and make infused waters that are refreshing and calorie-free. These are so easy to make that there aren't strict recipes, just some suggestions below for five flavors. Simply mix all the ingredients in a container and leave it alone. The rule of thumb is to let the water and add-ins marry for at least a day in the fridge, so the flavors really come through. For maximum summer cuteness, serve the drinks in a mason jar. Note: Prepare each of these in a 2-quart (or larger) container, filled with 32 ounces (about 8 cups) of water. Each makes about four servings, served best chilled or over ice. Orange blueberries Cut 1 orange into ½-inch-thick slices. Add to water along with ½ cup to 1 cup blueberries. Smash the blueberries in your hand a bit before adding them to the water.
Trim the tops off of 1 cup strawberries, then cut each one in half. Add to water along with a handful of fresh basil leaves (torn up a bit with your fingers).
Slice about half of a large cucumber into ¼-inch slices. Add to the water along with a handful of fresh mint leaves (torn up a bit with your fingers) and 1 lime cut into wedges. Squeeze the lime gently as you add it to the water.
Cut 1 peach into wedges. Add to water along with ⅓ to ½ cup fresh cherries, destemmed, pitted and sliced in half. Optional: Add 1 to 2 sprigs of fresh thyme; the herb taste will be rather strong if you add more.
Halve a grapefruit, then halve it again and add all 4 pieces to the water. Add a sprig or two (don't overdo it) of fresh rosemary.

The now famed Mean Green Juice has become a household staple in kitchens across the globe. If you have a juicer, you can make the Mean Green for a quick, healthy dose of phytonutrients sure to energize and nourish you.
We all know the Mean Green is good for you because, well, it’s green, but ever wondered exactly why? We break down the nutrition science for you here starting off with these 6 key ingredients that make this juice so healthful and delicious.
Beyond the specific benefits of the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients locked away in each ingredient, the act of juicing them may have additional advantages for certain individuals.
A recent study found that men who drank fresh vegetable juice with ingredients like kale, compared to commercial vegetable juice, had significantly lower total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels after just 4 weeks.
Juicing may also help to enhance the body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients often bound up by insoluble fibers. While eating of course remains a vital way of consuming nutrients including the insoluble fibers important for hunger control and blood sugar management, juicing can be a healthy addition to any plant-based diet. For those with bowel concerns making eating salads or a big bowl of the Mean Green veggies in their raw form a challenge, juicing offers an option to ingest these vital nutrients.
Happy Mean Green-ing!
Fruit is an area where some of the popular low-carb diets differ, as some depend more upon glycemic index or glycemic load (South Beach, Zone), while others just look at total carbs (Atkins, Protein Power). Also, some diets (Atkins, South Beach) don't allow fruit at all in the first phase. In general, your best bet fruits are the ones near the top of this list, but do check carb counts. This list is roughly arranged by sugar content according to the USDA database, based on a half-cup serving of fruit.
Good news: the fruits lowest in sugar are some of the highest in nutritional value, including antioxidants and other phytonutrients.
