Vegan Restaurants Phoenix - Vegan Food
Vegetarians and vegans eat the same type of food: fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. The vegan diet, however, takes it one step further - avoiding all animal products and by-products, including eggs, and dairy products. Although vegans are becoming ever more common, many people still have a lot of misconceptions about the vegan diet. For example, many believe the vegan diet contains no sources of protein. In reality, however, many plant sources are high in protein - including peanuts, soy beans and tofu, just to name a few. Others may think that the vegan diet lacks calcium. Nonetheless, supplements, fortified foods, and many plant sources help to provide the recommended calcium needs - including soy products, legumes and dark leafy-green veggies. It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
Until recently, anyone adhering to a vegan diet had few alternatives to preparing their own food at home. Most restaurants simply didn't offer vegan options, so dining out was difficult.
