When catering for vegans, it seems easy to just avoid offering meat products. However, making sure that there are no animal products to an entire meal can be quite complicated as the food manufacturer uses a significant amount of animal products in food processing such as eggs and milk. A simple solution for this is to cook whole food. A vegan diet includes eating grains, seeds, beans, legumes, vegetables, and fruits. Several vegan-friendly foods are out in the market like vegan hotdogs, non-dairy yogurt, veggie burgers, vegan mayonnaise, soy milk and non-dairy milk, and vegan’s favorite tofu. Also, ordinary food that contains no meat and dairy-free is suitable for vegans to eat like green salads, peanut butter sandwiches, egg-free pasta with tomato sauce and most bread that doesn’t include any dairy is also vegan-friendly.
3. Paleo – The paleo diet is an eating plan that imitates how ancient people may have eaten. It includes eating whole foods that presumably hunted and gathered. This diet is also called a caveman’s diet, a stone-age diet, hunter-gatherer diet because of its focus on eating foods that belong to the Palaeolithic era.
The concept behind this diet is that long before modern agricultural farming exists, people usually eat their food that is hunted or gathered like fish, meat, fruits, vegetable nuts, and seeds. When modern farming developed, it changed how people ate and adopt a diet that is full of dairy products, legumes, and grains. Paleo advocates disapprove on modern eating that is full of processed food. They believe that going back to how our ancestral eat as hunter-gatherer can make fewer health problems. They also believed that the human body has not developed to process dairy foods, legumes, and grains and eating these foods can increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. However, doctors do not know its effects on children, pregnant women, and older adults. Those who are planning to start on this diet should consult first with their health care provider.
Here is the list of foods that you can provide when catering for people on paleo diets: fruits, vegetables, lean meat, seeds, fish, eggs, herbs, spices, and oil that comes from fruit and nuts like olive oil, coconut oil, and almond oil. Paleo diets also include drinking black coffee or green tea and drinks plenty of water and need to be active every day.
