Top Tips For Going Vegan, Part One

The vegan diet is more popular than ever, and it isn’t hard to understand why. Going vegan is great for the environment, shows compassion for animals, improves your health and energy levels, and can even help you lose weight. Going vegan is a laudable act; however, like anything, there is a right way and a wrong way to go vegan. Over the next two blogs, we will share some of the best tips for going vegan the healthy way:

Find good substitutes 

These days, there are vegan substitutes for pretty much every animal product. Take some time to explore which substitutes you like. For example, sample a few different milk substitutes, such as almond or coconut milk, to determine which is your favorite. This will be a big help when you are trying to figure out how to make your favorite recipes vegan.

Research easy recipes

One of the biggest challenges for new vegans is figuring out what to cook now that animal products are off the table. Fortunately, vegan cooking can be quite simple. Start out by collecting 10 to 15 recipes that have fewer than six ingredients. Once you have mastered these, you can move on to experimenting with more complex recipes.

Snack often

One problem that new vegans often experience is frequently feeling hungry while they adjust to not having meat in their diet. If you are constantly hungry, it will be a lot harder to deny yourself that burger later. One way to alleviate this problem is to snack frequently throughout the day. Keep a healthy vegan snack with you at all times, like a Badass Power Cookie, the vegan protein cookie of your dreams!
