It’s really really really easy and I think any movement towards a plant-based diet will be more beneficial to your health.
Some have cut it cold turkey but that wasn’t me. I started with milk because I had allergies. That slowly transitioned to cutting mammals from my diet.
It’s a mind state, too. You have to remember why you’re moving to this diet, whether health, fitness, for the Earth, or the animals. It’s good to have a focus point—but eating good food each day doesn’t hurt either ;)
I didn’t take food out of my diet as much as I added new foods in. By filling my regular diet with more plant foods that I liked, I was able to ween off most animal products in a few weeks. I challenged myself. And I got freaky in the kitchen.
Like I didn’t know I liked zucchini until I tried something out there in a restaurant, and found that I love them.
You can find inspiration by watching vegan cooking channels on Youtube, or by googling your favorite food veganized like “vegan hot wings recipe” and try it out.
The best thing about a plant-based diet is that you’re not forced to limit yourself to just meat and cheese, you can have whatever you want and whatever you can make with your hands (which is ANYTHING trust me).
Flavors, fat content, presentation, these are all important in feeling SATISFIED after eating. That’s the biggest thing, walking away feeling full and happy and smacking your lips.
