Dairy has a lot of additives, extra fat, and also slows your body down. It takes even longer to digest dairy. Many of us believe that dairy is beneficial for calcium; however, coconut milk, kale, collard greens, broccoli, figs, and oranges are other highly enriched calcium dairy alternatives. I recently decided to transition to a vegan lifestyle. Immediately, I noticed I had more energy and even shed a few extra pounds. My meals are more simple and full of veggies and fruits. I love to start my day with a smoothie, and end it with a salad and a protein, but for snackin’ time I have nuts, clementines and popcorn. Start to eliminate dairy and see what happens!
