How to Go Plant-Based: Part One.

(Comments)

The biggest hurdles everyone always mentions that are in their way to trying something new are usually very similar regardless of what that thing is. Mostly, it's that you don't know where to start, what exactly to do and how to go about doing it. When going Plant-Based, these all applied to me. I made a ton of mistakes along the way, which are just a normal part of learning, but if you can avoid them, it's nice. This is really why I decide to share with you how to do this and stick with it. Going Vegan does not need to be uber complicated!

This is going to be a 4 part series, so stay tunes for the rest!

FIRST THINGS FIRST: Get the knowledge in, yo.

Inform yourself! These are the BEST places to start, so get some popcorn and sit yoself on that couch for some movie time:

1. Forks Over Knives.

2. Vegucated.

3. Food Matters

4. Meet Your Meat.

5. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

Now move on to some computer time:

1. HappyHerbivore.com

2. The Starch Solution

3. Harley and Freelee

4. Veganuary

5. Gary Yourofsky's Speech

Then if you are a reader (crazy recommended!):

1. The China Study, then Whole by T. Colin Campbell

2. Skinny Bitch or Skinny Bastard

Now, these are the most essential basics to get you started on learning about the why, when, wheres and all that of going Vegan or Plant-Based. I also find that Earthlings is an amazing video, BUT it is very graphic and covers the ethics of why many people choose a vegan lifestyle. 

Stay Tuned for Part 2: Getting Ready! It will include pantry essentials, navigating the grocery store and more!
