Many people would love to be vegan because they know the awful lives that animals on farms have. We’re not going into many of the brutal details here. If you are interested, you just need to research “battery farming” and “intensive farming”. Or, if you’re a fast food eater, the treatment of KFC chickens. Trust us; it’s enough to go off meat for the rest of your life.
Or… turning vegan may be because the body does need meat and produce from animals. But if you don’t provide your body with this, you need to give it an alternative. Otherwise, you will be putting your health in danger.
Admittedly, it’s hard to break the habit because – let’s face it – most people agree meat does taste good. But if you think going halfway and becoming a vegetarian is enough, you may still want to reconsider. Dairy cows are kept inside 365 days a year, milked by a machine and have no room to move.
So, the question now is, how can you make becoming a vegan easier?
TRY PRO VEGAN FOODS THAT ARE STILL DELICIOUS
If you become a vegan, you’re going to be eating quite a lot of salads. However, most people can’t eat salad without a good dollop of mayonnaise. Unfortunately, mayo is made with eggs, and typically pro-vegan mayo doesn’t taste good. There is an exception, though, and that comes from Hampton Creek. Their mayo tastes just as good, and you can find out more about their vegan products on the Hampton Creek Instagram. They’ve also got some great recipes that you can try at home.
MAKE SURE YOU STILL GET PROTEIN
Just because you are turning vegan, doesn’t mean you won’t get protein. You still can from a whole group of different foods such as beans and nuts. You can also purchase protein powder than can be added to drinks and consumed in shakes that tastes delicious. That why you’ll still be getting everything your body needs with a satisfying taste.
VEG AND FRUIT
If you can’t eat meat or other nonvegan products, you’ll have to focus on things that are more natural. We recommend that you try adding more veg and fruit to your diet. Try different ones that you haven’t tasted before from exotic locations. You might find that you discover an entirely new taste that you love.
CAREFUL PUSHING IT ON YOUR FAMILY
You may love going vegan so much that you want other people to try it too. It’s best just to focus on yourself though and let the rest make up their own mind. In particular, you need to be careful choosing to raise your baby as a vegan. Without strict instructions from a nutritionist, this can be dangerous to their health.
DON’T FORGET TO TREAT YOURSELF
Finally, there are many people who think going vegan means no more eating out. Most restaurants do have vegan options on their menus that are delicious. It might be awkward enquiring about this in the restaurant. However, typically, they have all the info that you need on their website. You can look before you book and still have a lovely meal.
