BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO VEGANISM

Let's help you get started

STEP 1: KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING INTO

Becoming vegan is not easily done overnight. You are journeying into something new. It is a process, so allow yourself time to adjust and make mistakes. However, the transition is much easier if you are well informed and prepared for the changes you must make to your lifestyle. Simply making the choice to lead a more vegan-friendly life is a huge step.

STEP 2: SUPPLEMENTS

Some essential nutrients are more easily found in meat products. Therefore, it is important that you figure out which nutrients you are lacking and find a good supplement to replace it.

STEP 3: GETTING GROCERIES

Get excited, your food world is expanding. You'll find that there are countless creative alternatives to non-vegan groceries everywhere if you know where to look.

Not all food is marked so you know that they're vegan. You'll find that reading the labels on food products becomes unavoidable. You wouldn't believe how many things you'd think are vegan, aren't. 


Fresh produce is a given but process foods are where things get a little complicated. Long lists of chemicals and numbers might seem daunting, but E-number guides have got your back.
