Sometimes it can be difficult to embrace a vegan lifestyle…especially when taking your family along with you.
No worries! It doesn’t have to be all or nothing to get started.
In the latest video, I share some tips to baby step your way into a vegan lifestyle with your family.
Tips from the video:
*Be a vegetarian first by replacing meat with vegan meat alternatives-Replace your chicken with Gardein products, sausage with Field Roast & ground beef with protein crumbles.
*Start replacing dairy with plant-based milk (almond, soy and flax are great alternatives), use Daiya or Follow Your Heart vegan cheese instead of dairy, and Earth Balance vegan margarine
*Read books and watch documentaries-Skinny Bitch, Sistah Vegan, EARTHLINGS, and Forks Over Knives are a few I recommend
*Start with vegan breakfast & snacks-You can replace your conventional pancakes with vegan ones (the milk is the only difference), enjoy tofu scramble instead of regular eggs, and drink smoothies with (plant-based milk) and oatmeal with Earth Balance margarine instead of dairy
*Commit to ONE vegan meal a week-You can do it! Use Pinterest and my recipe page to get ideas
