The easiest way to eat vegan is to cook for yourself. If you’ve never been one to cook at home, this is the perfect opportunity to start. While the world of vegan cuisine can be very creative, I recommend starting out with quick and simple meals. Make sure you are keeping your meals balanced with carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and fibers, and good fats. People wonder where vegans get their protein, some great sources include tofu, beans & legumes, and seeds. Learn to cook with these and you’re set. If you are someone who is still in school, or usually busy throughout the week, I highly recommend meal prepping.

To do this, wash your fruits and vegetables in bulk, boil and portion then freeze items, buy frozen, cut and portion, and ration your foods to create a stress-free week ahead.
