Vegan by Day
In Mark Bittman’s latest book Food Matters he talks about how most people find it difficult to improve their eating habits. While it may seem daunting to cut out all processed foods and eat more vegetables, whole grains and fruits it is really quite simple. Bittman subscribes to the 100 percent vegan before 6 p.m. and for dinner he indulges in other foods he loves.
Eating healthfully doesn’t necessarily mean cutting fat and calories it just means increasing the whole foods. You will naturally find that by crowding in more of the good the processed foods are crowded out.
If you subscribe to the new vegan by day and anything goes at night eating pattern it is important to make sure you’re eating enough during the day. Experiment with making breakfast or lunch your biggest meal filled with whole grains, vegetables or fruit. Try the breakfast experiment. Explore different lunch options here. When you eat enough whole foods during the day you will be less likely to indulge in chemicalized, artificial junk food at night.
