Question by kl3_2oo4: What is the perfect Vegan diet that provides all of the amino acids, vitamins and minerals without using soy?
I am trying to find a vegan/raw food diet that provides all of the essential amino acids, 40-50 grams of protein, the majority of vitamins and minerals, without the use of soy since it has been proven to contain hazardous substances. Please advise.
Answer by trenardy The perfect vegan diet that will provide you with all the nutrients you need is raw vegan.
There are hundreds of raw vegan websites, do a Google search.
Good places to begin are:
By the way, raw vegans don’t use soy because soy by-products (milk, cheese and tofu) have all been cooked.
Answer by Kwame (Alaf) The first responder is right, raw food is the way to go (ultimately).
Also, fermented soy is not really bad for you, just the non-fermented kind. If you are able to try miso or tempeh, these are fermented and nutritious versions of soy.
I do not eat any non-fermented soy because it does nothing for my body.
Answer by TWO SOCKS Just use this the vegan food pyramid and food guide. You only need cut out the soy milk and use an substitute like rice, almond, hemp, or oat milk. Soy products made from mock meat can easily be eliminated by using any other types of beans in recipes along with a grain in order to make another meal. Just make sure to get vitamins B,, D,and folic acid through fortified cereals, plant-based milks, fortified nutriotional yeast flakes, fortified tempeh, Kombuca or something like that.
