Whatever your reasons are for transitioning to a vegan diet; animal rights, environmental issues, improving your health, it can be quite difficult and confusing to pull together a healthy menu. Eating a plant-based diet is like any other diet; you need balance to ensure you are getting all your nutrients and you need to realize it’s ok to not be perfect!
Do the best you can, don’t beat yourself up, and continue to educate yourself on proper nutrition. I’ve put together 10 of my top tips for transitioning to a vegan diet.
I hope this list of top ten tips helps you as you start out on your road to eating and living a plant-based diet and lifestyle. I’m sure you’ll come across a few bumps in the road that I have not covered here, but this should help you get started.
