So, I’m Vegan! Now what?

food-salad-dinner-eatingSo, I’m Vegan! Now what?

You’ve decided to go vegan and live a plant-based life. Yes! It was your New Year’s Resolution, and let’s face it—you’re kicking butt and taking names.

Well, most days…

There *was* that piece of cake you ate at work for Janet’s birthday. Oh, and that Thursday—the one where everything sucked, so you and your friends went out a bought some of those sliders you like so much.

The rest of the time—you NAILED it! But yet, you feel guilty. You know, because of the cake and sliders.

Let me tell you something, it’s okay. There is no special trick to transition to a Plant-Based and Vegan life. It is OK to fall off the wagon, because, like everything else in life—it’s a process.

While there isn’t an exact formula on how to go—and stay—plant-based and vegan, there are tricks that will help you maintain moving forward.


One reason why it’s so hard to keep on this path is simple, you run out of food. Then you’re hungry, and suddenly, a pepperoni pizza for six bucks sound the like perfect fix. Simple solution, cook in bulk. Find a recipe you love and double it. Eat part now, freeze the rest for later. Now you have a back up meal for late days, when you’re hurried, or you just aren’t up to cooking something new.
