So as promised.. here is part 2 of my How To Go Vegan post! You can check tip number 1 and 2 in my previous post.
3. Get inspired
I personally don’t know anyone in my environment that’s vegan too or at least vegetarian, so I did all research on my own. Through Instagram and Youtube I discovered so many other people who were also vegan and I love taking inspiration from them! But do keep in mind: never copy someone else’s diet on the internet or follow random meal plans. Everybody is different so it’s all about finding out what works for you and your body. Yes that will take time, but it’s so worth it once you know your body and what it needs.
4. Meal prep
I always bring my own meals everywhere I go. Whether I’m going to college or have some appointments and I know I will be out of the house for a couple of hours, I bring my own food. Where I live, plant-based living isn’t popular and there are basically no healthy, plant-based meals for me to rely on when I’m out of the house, so I always make sure I pack my own meals. This is an important one cause nothing is worse than being hungry but having literally nothing to eat.. Always be prepared!
5. Enjoy the journey
It’s okay if you slip up a few times in the beginning. Don’t beat yourself up for it. If it was an accident, just move on – the point of veganism is avoiding using animals as much as you can, so if you accidently ate or bought something with animal products in it (for example when they told you it’s vegan but afterwards it’s not) that doesn’t mean you’ve failed and now aren’t vegan anymore. Keep going. You’re trying the best you can and I’m already so proud of you for trying and you can definitely be proud of yourself too.
