HOW to Transition to VEGAN

how to go vegan

πŸƒ My TOP 5 tips on how to go VEGAN πŸ‘‡πŸ»

1. Know WHY: the more research you do, the more passionate and committed you'll be. Seriously though. I'd recommend the Netflix documentaries Forks Over Knives, Cowspiracy, and Earthlings (free on youtube). There's no going back after that.

2. Start SMALL: Gradually removing animal products will basically wean you off them easier. Don't be so hard on yourself at first. I still mess up, read ingredients wrong, etc but I just do my BEST. You're already doing something pretty damn amazing for the world, just try removing one product at a time (like eggs, then cheese, and keep revisiting your WHY).

3. Go PUBLIC with it: No, I'm not talking preachy crazy person (because let's be real, after watching those documentaries we all want to get that way...been there!), but tell your closest friends, significant other, and/or support groups! This way you stay more accountable--you can also invite these people to do it with you and/or do their research too.

4. Get SUPPORT: This goes hand in hand with going public with it, but there are SO many amazing resources to help you on this journey! I have this blog to help, and I'm here if you ever want guidance, but there are also great groups online, facebook pages, and an awesome community. You don't want to be in this alone! :)

5. Get EXCITED and TRY new foods! I think this was most difficult for me at first. I went straight for the dairy/meat substitutes, which caused weight gain, energy decrease, and I was NOT healthy. Instead of the new products (trust me there are SO many to try...but I wouldn't all at once), check out awesome blogs like Oh She Glows, get some amazing cookbooks, and go to town! You'll want to experiment with how to cook tofu properly, amazing chickpea curry recipes, nutritional yeast as a condiment on EVERYTHANG, and btw I have all those recipes and tips on here too! πŸ˜ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ»

  1. If you really want to take the "announcing it publicly" thing to the next level, then after you tell people, take a picture of everything you eat for the next week (or so) and post that publicly as well. It'd be easy to tell everyone you're vegan now (and get all the praise and good feelings of being a virtuous person) and then proceed to not be vegan at all.
