Simple Tips For Going Vegan
If you go vegan for ethical reasons it will be much easier. Knowing you are not only doing this for you and your health, but also to save the lives and prevent the pain and suffering of animals will sustain you. The number one thing that keeps people vegan is watching Earthlings. Yes it's hard to watch. Why? Because it's horrible. All the more reason to stay vegan.
Rather than focus on cutting out non-vegan foods, focus on crowding them out. In other words, to make an easy and permanent transition to a vegan diet, the smartest thing to do is to be constantly discovering new foods. The more foods you try, the more foods you'll like, and the more you'll find yourself gravitating toward making more and more vegan choices.
Going vegan is a great time to work on upgrading your cooking skills, since nothing is so reliably vegan as something you have personally cooked. If you're just starting out with vegan cooking, it's wise to start with a cookbook or two devoted to quick and easy recipes you can make every day, featuring ingredients that are easy to find. A few great choices are:
Robin Robertson's Quick-Fix Vegan
Marc Reinfeld's 30-Minute Vegan
Lorna Sass' Short-Cut Vegan.
Find recipes to convert your favorite meals to vegan meals. Any meal you like now can be made vegan and it will taste just as good or better. You don't have to give up any recipes just because you went vegan. Pizza, burgers, ice cream, can all be made vegan and delicious.
