When embarking on a vegan diet, people often focus on the good stuff, lots of veggies, which is great when you have time to cook. But, what happens when the quick fix junk food starts creeping in, or when the only vegan options don't contain any protein, we can tend to feel tired and run down.
Did you know that not enough selenium means we can't produce enough of our active thyroid hormone T3, not enough protein can affect our sleep quality or not enough Magnesium affects our ability to produce our sleep hormone melatonin?
All of which can leave us feeling a bit sloth-like!
