10 Easy Ways to Transition to a Plant-Based diet
1. Don’t be hard on yourself.
Change is a process. Be patient with yourself.
2. Replace your regular milk with a plant-based milk
Oh, the variety. Almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, coconut milk, cashew milk…Shall I go on?
3. Eat more fruits
What better way to break-fast?
4. Buy dairy-free ice cream
Join the dark side, we have ice cream. So many options and brands to choose from…try Ben & Jerry’s PB & Cookie dairy-free ice cream and thank me later.
5. Read the label ingredients on foods
You’d be surprised as to what foods contain dairy and which don’t.
Examples: Some bread contains milk.
6. Challenge your friends or family to go plant-based for a few days
We’re always stronger in numbers. And let’s face it, vegan donuts taste so much better and fresh. And who the heck says no to donuts?
7. Go to happycow.net
Locate the nearest vegan restaurant to you and try something new. Don’t be so vanilla. Eat that vegan mofonguito.
8. Try new foods
Don’t knock it ‘til you try it. You might miss out on something delicious. #FOMO
Date night anyone? First impressions are everything. Get inspired and recreate the plant-based version of your favorite dishes.
10. Offer to bring a vegan dish to gatherings
Make sure there are a few plant-based options whenever you’re going to a gathering and bring a dish with you. What’s the fun in eating all this good food alone? Share it.
