5 Tips to Going Vegan

5 Tips to going Vegan

  1.  Know your reason why you want to become vegan. Are you doing it for health reasons, the environment or for the animals? When you feel like you’re struggling go back to this and remember the reason you are doing it in the first place.
  2.   Go at your own pace. I did not turn vegan overnight and you might not either. That is OK! Every step you make is another step in the right direction. You will get there ! If you need a vegan mentor please feel free to reach out to me. You can reach me on my Facebook Page, Instagram or email plantbasedmommyblog@gmail.com . There are also tons of facebook groups you can join in order to get help from others as well!
  3. Be prepared for questions and comments from others. Your eating will not be the hardest part about going vegan, at least it wasn’t for me! The social aspect is much harder to deal with then not eating any animal products! You will get the question about where you get your protein(which you can state from beans, quinoa, brown rice, vegetables, lentils etc) and you will here the comment “I could never give up meat or cheese” over and over and over again. Let this roll off your shoulder. Those who want to listen and care will. It’s not worth getting into an argument over. People always have opinions so just humble yourself and keep moving on to a healthier lifestyle !
  4. Buy some vegan cookbooks and clean out your fridge! This is so easy and fun ! If you don’t have any animal products in your house you are less likely to eat them ! So get rid of them and open up a new cookbook and get cooking ! You will not only feel better with this lifestyle but will have more energy to be able to cook! Below are some of my all time favorite cookbooks!

Vegan Street Fair 2017

Getting ready for Vegan Street Fair! 

  Built By Plants Shop

Where do I begin about Vegan Street Fair?  20,000 people, 100’s of vendors and a whole lot of REALLY GOOD food happened yesterday at Vegan Street Fair Los Angeles.  We went to the original Vegan Street Fair two years ago, but the huge turnout and ticket process made it difficult. This year, it was MASSIVE and had no tickets, YAY! If you didn’t make it this year , I hate to break it to you but you missed out. We arrived a little after 10:30am and found a close parking spot. We started strolling our way in and found to our surprise that some vendors were already up and cooking. Earlier in the morning we had marked down all of the vendors that we wanted to visit and where the booth was located ( THANK YOU Vegan Street Fair for making menus and locations available before the event!!). A few of ours were not open yet so we kept on strolling…. Our first stop was A Dirty Cookie! We had a double chocolate, vanilla almond milk filled, cookie shot. If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, I don’t know what is. It did NOT disappoint ! Continue reading “Vegan Street Fair 2017”
