Help me with my vegan diet. How do I get started?
If you are serious about making changes, start substituting your animal products with vegan choices. Clean out your cupboards and refrigerator, visit your grocery store and buy animal free versions of what you like to eat. Everyone is different, so if you like turkey sandwiches, burgers, and oven baked breaded chicken, then buy Tofurky deli turkey slices for your sandwich, along with vegan cheese singles, and soy based Vegenaise in place of mayonnaise. There are many brands of vegan burgers, so check the freezer section and read ingredients. Gardein makes many varieties of faux chicken, but my all time favorite is Chicken Tenders. Bake them in the oven for a crispy breaded chicken entree. I love to dip mine in Magestic Garlic white garlic sauce, which you can find in the raw/vegan end aisle fridge section at any Whole Foods. It is easy to eat vegan and make healthy vegetarian recipes and healthy dessert recipes when your kitchen and pantry are stocked with vegan foods. Replace all meats with a variety of vegetarian meat (meatless, vegan). Continue to eat fruits and vegetables, which are all vegan. Try new varieties too!
