It is a well-known diet secret that drinking more liquids can make you feel full so you end up eating less food. But if you are just filling up with water, you’re not getting any valuable nutrients. This particular liquid diet is geared toward all lifestyles, but fully supports the vegan lifestyle — and it includes oat milk, celery juice and broth. Now you can see for yourself if supplementing liquid as a meal replacement works for your weight management goals.
A popular European diet aid for years, oat milk is just starting to catch on in the U.S. Oat milk is a great option for vegans and people who are lactose intolerant because it doesn’t contain dairy. It’s full of B vitamins and minerals, and it has a really pleasant taste that’s not always easy to find in diet drinks. While oat milk is very low in fat, it does contain carbohydrates so it is better to have this milk at the beginning of the day or before a workout. Oat milk is made by soaking and blending oats with water. Strain the mixture to separate the liquid, and you have a healthy dose of nutrients and minerals. It’s also a filling drink, which makes it great for weight management when you use it as a meal replacement.
It looks exactly like the scary health drinks you see in comedy movies, but many people are swearing by this new diet trend. Celery is packed with potassium, folate and vitamins A and K. All you have to do is blend and strain whole organic stalks to create this healthy drink that’s said to reduce and reverse inflammation, prevent illness and give you a strong dose of nutrients. It is recommended to drink it on an empty stomach to get the most health benefits. The taste of celery juice isn’t so bad, either. Luckily, this green drink tastes better than it looks.
Pacific Foods Organic Vegetable Broth is the perfect broth to drink served hot, or the base for many nutritious, wholesome dishes with a mix of leeks, onions, carrots, tomato puree, celery, and garlic. This broth has vitamins and minerals — and delicious vegetables. With little added sea salt, it’s low in sodium and calories, too. Be sure to read the ingredients on the broth you choose, as you should be able to recognize all of the ingredients.
DIY or Don’t DIY
You don’t have to make your own celery juice, broth or oat milk — luckily! Because these are all popular weight loss options, all of these drinks can be purchased pre-made.
