Embarking on a plant based lifestyle may seem like a scary and daunting change. But truth is, making the transition to a plant based diet is easier than you think.
Here are our top 7 tips to help you start living a plant based lifestyle
Don’t expect to be perfect straight away
If you’ve grown up eating meat and animal products then you may find making the change daunting. But whilst some people may decide to go all in when they first make the change, you may want to start by making small changes and gradually eliminate animal products. Meatless Monday’s or Vegan from Sunday - Thursday is a good way to start.
Don’t binge on refined carbs
It’s easy to reach for refined carbs when it comes to filling that meat shaped hole in your life. But put the bagel down and push aside the doughnut; these foods will not make you feel better and they’ll sabotage your efforts. Instead, make a menu plan that has a wide range of health, plant-based foods that will nourish your body.
Changing to a plant based lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite foods. Experiment with some of your favorite dishes and replace the meat with plant based alternatives. You’ll be surprised at how good these dishes will still taste.
