What I Ate on an HCLF Vegan Diet
Since I was already a plant-based eater, I continued to eat my fill of raw and cooked veggies. But one thing I started to eat more of was fresh fruit and whole grains. Over the previous year and a half, I'd found that eating fruits and whole grains could cause digestive upset and belly bloat, so I'd cut back on those. It was exciting to reintroduce them! I ate tons of bananas, apples, berries, peaches, grapes, melon, and fruit smoothies, and found that they didn't upset my stomach.
My meals consisted of fresh salads with tofu and cooked whole quinoa, brown rice with beans or curry, oatmeal, soups, whole wheat pasta, and instead of snacking on nuts, I'd nosh on baby carrots or strips of bell pepper.
