At Badass Power Cookie, we love that our vegan protein cookies provide plenty of powerful nutrients, such as calcium, iron, B12, and antioxidants. However, even though Badass Power Cookie gives you three times the protein of beef, one cannot live on protein cookies alone. It is also important to include nutritious, home-cooked meals in your diet.
When it comes to cooking, sometimes it can be difficult to make dishes that are both flavorful and nutritious. Whether you are already a hardcore vegan, or are just trying to make more plant-based meals, here are some of our vegan cooking tips:
Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to plant-based cooking. Do yourself a favor and become well-informed about both the benefits and mechanics of being a vegan. Additionally, the internet has a plethora of vegan recipes at your disposal, and there are many vegan cookbooks out there as well. Finally, you may consider taking a vegan cooking class. As informative as your research may be, there is nothing quite like learning from an expert firsthand.
Use seasonal produce
When produce is in season, it is at its peak in terms of taste and nutritional value. Using fresh and seasonal produce will make your vegan diet a lot more appealing. Visit your farmers’ market and try the local produce to contribute to your community’s economy and save the environment.
With fresh ingredients, you do not need a ton of seasonings, because the food will be flavorful enough on its own. The most important thing to keep in mind is to have a light hand when it comes to salt. When you add salt to your meals, the goal should not be to taste salt; salt works to bring out the natural flavors of your food. Additionally, consider using lemon juice to flavor your dishes. Not only will it bring out more tasty flavors, lemon aids in digestion.
When you need a snack you can munch on when you’re on the go, Badass Power Cookie has all the nutrients you need to keep going all day long. Try our vegan protein cookie today!
