Going vegan is a big plunge - one many are curious about but hesitant to do. If you're ready to make the transition to a more vegan or all vegan lifestyle, we've got some tips to help get you started!
Start By Going Vegetarian
Not sure jumping right in is the best way to go? We agree. We've covered tips and tricks for going vegetarian here and here. A good way to build up to being vegan is to start first by going vegetarian (or pescatarian/pollotarian/etc). Ease into the transition to help your body (and mind) adjust.
Be Willing To Compromise
Another key point when going vegan is compromise - understand that many restaurants will not have vegan options or will have very few. You have to be willing to compromise here (but don't force yourself into a position you're uncomfortable with). The noodles in your pasta dish may contain eggs, the sauce may contain dairy, the bread may have butter - you have to figure out what you're willing to compromise on and what is completely out of the question.
Be Patient (With Yourself & Others)
Patience is crucial - going vegan can be hard not just for you but for those around you. Be ready for questions from everyone. Going vegan can be more difficult for others to understand - be prepared for the question "where do you get your protein?" from countless curious folks.
Go All In
Once you're ready - go all in! Going vegan is a life changing and often fulfilling decision that many do not regret. I know I haven't!
