FALL SPICE BALLS

Good morning and welcome to day 1 of my 30 days of plant based recipes! I am actually so excited for this challenge and think that it will help reduce some of the stigmas associated with a vegan life.  Not all vegans are tree hugging, salad preachers, patchouli sniffing, granola activists; though I am guilty of some of the above. I definitely don’t live on salads only and believe that eating a plant based diet is one of the greatest choices I have ever made.

Even if you have no desire to be vegan, I would love to offer the challenge to try to eat a couple plant based meals a week.  Just give it a go and see how your body feels.  I’m definitely not for pushing my beliefs on you but I love when people can experience the beauty of a plant based life.  

Show me your fixings on Instagram under the hashtag #TheKindestPlate.  We are so thrilled to be on this journey and nothing makes me more grateful than being able to pursue my passion.  So thank YOU for being her and doing this with us.  We are so grateful.

    Hi! I\’m so excited about this BUT I\’m super scared to try it too. I have iron deficiency anemia and I\’ve heard it can get worse if I eat only plant based foods. Therefore I\’ve been holding back for too long now. Do you have any experience in this and may offer some suggestions? Thank you in advance.

      Hey love!

      Thanks so much for the comment. It’s eleni not sure if it’ll show up since I’m not logged in. I struggled with iron deficient anemia for years before I went vegan. My ferritin levels as actual at a 7 at one point. When I went vegan I never struggled with iron again. I think when you make a conscious effort to eat more nutrient dense foods you’re actually getting everything you need where as when I didn’t eat meat often but wasn’t vegan my body really suffered because I wasn’t healthy at all.

      There are so many iron rich plants and I’m more than happy to do an Instagram story tomorrow sharing some options. But all those pumpkin recipes are good because pumpkin is good for iron! But pumpkin, soy beans, legumes, chickpeas, kale..oh gee I could go on! I think if you read on how to get the things your body needs you’d be surprised how much easier it is. Also, eating iron with vitamin c helps! So pair it with something containing vitamin c and it’ll help absorption. I’m notttt a doctor or a RD but I read a lot. Let me know! I also have lots of boards on Pinterest (conveythemoment) to help you.
